The North Augusta Yellow Jacket Club unveiled plans Friday to build a student athletic center for North Augusta High School.
“The idea came out of necessity,” said Brad Siverhus, the club’s vice president, adding that current facilities are out of date and “greatly undersized.”
The club began working on the idea in February and showcased artist renderings during the school’s playoff game Friday.
The athletic center will be about 14,000 square feet in size and will feature a weight room, locker rooms, meeting room, training room and a multipurpose area.
“It will also house the North Augusta Hall of Fame, which currently doesn’t have a permanent home,” he said.
As people stopped by to view the artist renderings, the most common comment was that the center is “long overdue,” said Siverhus.
The center is projected to cost about $2 million. A fundraising campaign for the center will kick off in January.
“We’re very excited about this,” said Siverhus.
