INSIDE WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM
The total well-being of the student-athletes is priority No. 1. They receive the best on-site care at the multi-million dollar athletic training room at Williams-Brice Stadium. The 7,000 square foot facility features treatment, rehabilitation and exam room space along with a 1,800-square foot hydrotherapy area.
Teaming with UnderArmour, the official apparel outfitter of Gamecock Athletics, the student-athletes are clothed from head to toe in the latest high-tech performance gear to maximize their performance.
The locker room is the sanctuary where teammates bond and long-lasting relationships are formed. Those who enter the premises are asked to do so with energy and urgency, as they represent the fighting spirit and courage embodied in a Gamecock.
When the student-athletes have a few moments of down time between practice, meetings and classes, they head to the players' lounge, adjacent to the locker room. Here they can watch TV, play pool or video games, catch up on their studies or just relax and unwind.
Games can be won or lost in the weight room. South Carolina strength and conditioning coaches develop workout programs specific to each sport and provide guidance to assist student-athletes become bigger, faster, stronger and better conditioned to reach their full athletic potential.
The Football Operations Center will provide the Gamecocks' program with a recruiting center, locker room, weight room, athletic training room, coaches' offices, meeting rooms, dining room, equipment room and player lounges; all in one convenient location. It will be adjacent to the new Jerri and Steve Spurrier Indoor Practice Facility and outdoor practice fields.
