FACILITY PROJECTS

Providing the best possible facilities is important to enhancing UVA’s home team advantage for student-athletes, coaches and fans. The needs of individual sports are prioritized through coaches’ discussions with athletics administrators. Once an identified facility project has gone through the University’s approval process, the athletics department depends on the Virginia Athletics Foundation to raise the funds to finance the project and provide an endowment to support its operation and ongoing maintenance, if appropriate.

Athletics Master Plan

The athletics complex will redefine how we educate our student-athletes by improving our facilities and the support we provide to them as they study to achieve academic excellence, develop the necessary skills to become citizen leaders for tomorrow, and train to compete for championships.

Palmer Park

Palmer Park brings the excitement of UVA Softball to the heart of the University’s athletics complex. This state-of-the-art facility hosted its inaugural season in 2020 and is the first athletics competition site at UVA named in honor of former UVA standout Lisa Palmer and her mother, Frances.

“It’s important for any of our student-athletes or any of our students to make sure that they have a great facility to maximize their potential to learn, grow, develop, get better, and so this facility will certainly help our softball student-athletes thrive,” says UVA Athletics Director Carla Williams.
