Construction begins on Kaufman Athletic Training and Fitness Center

Mar 26, 2018

WAYLAND — Construction has begun on the Kaufman Athletic Training and Fitness Center at the WACO High School campus in Wayland.

The approximate 9,000 square foot facility will be the home of locker rooms, weight training for Warrior Athletics, Athletic trainer space, an indoor turf area for workouts, a cardio area that will offer membership open to the community. Details regarding the membership area will be released as available. The facility was gifted to WACO by a donation from Mark and Mary Ann Kaufman.

As construction continues changes will be made to entering/exiting the campus and parking.

Contractors will be using the north entrance to the school. As such, the school district asks to keep public traffic as light as possible at the north entrance.

“Visitors, staff and students should use the main entrance, off the highway, when arriving and departing the school,” a press release from the school explained.

The district also asks students, parents and visitors use the easternmost parking lot first. Parking will be impacted as little as possible during WACO home track meets.

The area surrounding the Kaufman Athletic Training & Fitness Center will be fenced and secured for the safety of the public.

Please do not any attempt to enter the construction area. The South entrance on Cummings Street will close at a later date for the duration of the project.

The Center is expected to open in time for the 2018-2019 School year. An open house is being planned for a later date.
