George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex (Hillside Road, Storrs campus, directly behind Greer Field House)
The University of Connecticut field hockey and men and women's track and field programs find its home at the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex, a $3.7 million athletic facility located adjacent to Memorial Stadium and the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in the heart of UConn's main campus in Storrs. A financial gift of more than $650,000 to UConn's Athletic Development Fund by Lottie K. Sherman of West Hartford helped provide the necessary funding for the project, and the entire complex bears the name of Lottie Sherman's late husband, George J. Sherman.
Opened in the 1995-96, academic year, the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex features a state-of-the-art artificial turf field (nylon knit on elastic layer over a vertical drain base), giving the UConn field hockey program one of the finest on-campus collegiate facilities in the nation. The complex also includes an eight-lane, 400-meter all-weather track surface as well as seating for 2,000 fans, full-field lighting, a press box, and a scoreboard with electronic message ability.
