Swinney Recreation Center
The home of UMKC Athletics, the Swinney Recreation Center houses the Kangaroo administration, coaches and student-athletes. The Dutton Brookfield Strength and Conditioning Center, the Victor F. Swyden Athletics Training Facility and the Student-Athlete Support Services Office also are located in the facility.
The SRC is one of the finest fitness centers in all of Kansas City. Created through a $14.5 million addition to the old Swinney Gymnasium, the center includes five basketball courts, four raquetball courts, a 25-meter indoor/outdoor pool and three exercise rooms - two weight rooms and a cardio room.
The competition court serves as the home venue for UMKC volleyball in the fall and UMKC women’s basketball during the winter. It is also the main practice venue for
the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams.
Kangaroo student-athletes enjoy excellent locker room facilities, courtesy of a major renovation undertaken prior to the 2007-08 school year. Along with providing each student-athlete their own individual locker space, the facility also features a player’s lounge that includes leather couches
and a big screen television. In addition, the lounge is equipped with a computer workstation with a high-speed internet connection.
In summer of 2012, the courts received a face-lift with new floors on all five courts.
