As a way to ensure that its physical space meets the needs of its students and the community, St. Joseph’s College Brooklyn, Clinton Hill, has opened a newly renovated athletic rental space in the campus’ St. Angela Hall.

The 2,000-square-foot space is fitted with artificial field turf and can be used for indoor soccer, baseball, softball and other sports. The space is also equipped with retractable batting cages.

Already, the college has partnered with local nonprofit youth athletic groups to utilize the multipurpose space.

“This new space is a welcome addition to the college’s athletic programs and will provide our NCAA student-athletes with the facilities they need to train and thrive in competition,” said James Lally, the school’s athletic director. “More importantly, it will also help us integrate our athletic program into the community.
