#1 Best Athletic Facilities

PRINCETON REVIEW 2012

Army West Point is home to breathtaking facilities, nestled alongside the picturesque Hudson River. From historic Michie Stadium to the West Point Golf Course, the facilities at Army West Point are steeped in rich tradition, but also possess unmatched state-of-the-art qualities.

  • Johnson StadiumWhile the origin of baseball has been disputed, Doubleday, nonetheless, is still given credit and the baseball field at the U.S. Military Academy was dedicated in his honor in May 1939, the centennial year of baseball. Long recognized as one of the finest baseball facilities on the East Coast, Doubleday Field enters its second century of existence in grand style. “The Home of Army West Point Baseball” since games were first contested on its present site in 1909, Doubleday Field underwent a major renovation in 1996. Work was completed six years ago, with the new Johnson Stadium at Doubleday Field formally dedicated at ceremonies on Sept. 13, 1996. Highlights of the renovation project included the construction of full locker rooms for both home and visiting teams, fully equipped training rooms, clubhouse facilities, and the addition of 880 fixed chair-back seats. Great pains were taken in its design to draw an appropriate parallel between the new facility and the historic significance of its physical location on campus. Formal granite facing emulating many of USMA’s older academic buildings was tastefully incorporated to address those means. Internally, spacious locker room and clubhouse facilities provide coaching staff and team members with a sparkling new home. Landscaping and sitework around the facility were intentionally subdued with the historic parade ground known as “The Plain” remaining dominant. In order to ensure that, overall height of the structure was minimized. While the renovated version of Doubleday Field provides a facility worthy of the Army program’s rich heritage, it also remains a structure conscious of its import relative to the overall mission of the U.S. Military Academy.Johnson Stadium
  • West Point Golf CourseDesigned by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, the West Point Golf Course opened in 1946 and continues to play to rave reviews. A four-time host of the Patriot League Championships, the West Point Golf Course features a large clubhouse, top-of-the-line pro shop, small restaurant and plenty of dining space for post-tournament awards. In addition to the challenging course and spacious clubhouse, the Army golf team also benefits from the D’Prsa Short Game Area. Donated in 2000 in memory of Major Gen. Charles S. D’Orsa, a 1932 West Point graduate, the short game area is used exclusively by the Army West Point Golf Team and provides a training ground for chipping, putting, rough and sand work.johnson stadium
  • Tate Ice RinkLocated next to picturesque Michie Stadium, the Holleder Center is home to West Point’s Tate Rink and Army West Point’s hockey team. Tate Rink (capacity – 2,648) continues to attract fans in record numbers while providing the Black Knights with a comfortable home-ice advantage. Since their debut in Tate Rink, a 5-0 win over Ryerson on Oct. 25, 1985, Army has enjoyed much success. The Black Knights have carved out a home record of .500 or better 15 times since the 1985-86 inaugural season and boast of an overall winning percentage of better than .600 in front of the hometown faithful.

With 10 light stacks and six seating bleachers, Clinton Field is one of the top soccer facilities in the Patriot League and a favorite venue for visiting teams. Clinton Field has also been host to five Patriot League Tournaments, twice with the men and four times with the women. Additionally, both the men’s and women’s soccer squads host early-season tournaments on a regular basis, which attracts some of the top teams in the Northeast and from around the country.Clinton Field

  • Lichtenberg Tennis CenterIt is hard to imagine the construction of a building having any more impact on a sports program than the sparkling new Lichtenberg Tennis Center has had on the Army West Point tennis teams.

The 1972 Men’s and 1976 Women’s Olympic teams selected West Point as the official training site before departing for Munich and Montreal, respectively. The Black Knights have served as host for both the Eastern Seaboard Swimming and Diving Championships and the Patriot League Championships on a rotating basis.
