Le Moyne College is planning a $45 million expansion and renovation of its athletic facilities that will include the addition of a track and field complex and tennis courts, state and college officials said today.


The new facilities will include a team community center with locker rooms and sports medicine facilities, a strength and conditioning facility for student athletes, and a fitness center.


The college also will renovate its Vincent B. Ryan Pool and other parts of the athletic complex.


The project was made possible by the recent approval of $12 million in state grants over the next two years, said state Assembly member Pam Hunter, D-Syracuse.


Le Moyne College said it will raise money from donors, including corporate sponsors, to pay for its $33 million share of the expansion.


Le Moyne moved all of its sports programs to Division I last year after accepting an invitation to join the Northeast Conference.


Some of the renovated and expanded facilities will be open to the community as well as Le Moyne athletes, students and employees, a college spokesman said.


Hunter said this year’s state budget includes $5 million in the capital fund to design and build the tennis and track and field complex.


The state will provide an additional $5 million from the budget’s capital fund in 2025 to renovate Le Moyne’s recreation center.


Separately, state Sen. John Mannion, D-Geddes, secured $2 million in the budget that will be used to renovate the pool and existing athletic facilities.


When the work is complete, Le Moyne will offer free summer sports camps and other educational programs to neighborhood groups, a college spokesman said.
