Student-athletes at Elgin Community College compete on some of the best athletic fields in the area.
One of the finest baseball facilities in the state, ECC’s baseball field features a playing surface of Alabama crushed brick and 100 percent Kentucky bluegrass sod—the same sod used at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers.
The outfield features an eight-foot-high wood fence, and the backstop sports a three-foot-high cement wall with netting.
With seating capacity for 500, the field also boasts an outdoor hitting facility with two 70-foot-long tunnels and four catch net stations where players can hone their skills.
The men’s and women’s soccer teams practice and compete on campus on a field that was built from scratch by our own grounds department. The field has become one of the nicer playing surfaces in the region.
Some ECC teams compete off campus at facilities including:
- The Elgin Sports Complex, a nearby facility boasting 10 lighted ball fields
- Centre Court Athletic Club in Hanover Park, a state-of-the-art facility with more than a dozen indoor tennis courts
