  • NBA Practice Facilities Get Big Upgrades

    by Jeff Zillgitt January 2016

    On a construction site across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie stood in the middle of an unfinished building. It's the location of the 76ers' new $80 million, 120,000-square-feet practice facility and business offices. No courts yet. No locker rooms. Just an empty two-floor structure with beams and stairs that is scheduled to be completed before training camp opens in the fall. Standing on what will be the location of a practice court, Hinkie envisions his ideal scenario: It's September, players are in town ahead of training camp, working out. They are on the court, in the weight and conditioning room, in the hydrotherapy pools. Perhaps doing yoga or getting a massage. Hinkie wants an environment "in which everybody sees how hard everybody else is working," he says. "The goal is to encourage you to work at your craft -- three hours beats two hours, and four hours beats three."

  • Why a Northern High School Opted for an Indoor Practice Facility

    by Paul Steinbach December 2015

    The tour — the story — starts in a decades-old gymnasium. It was while assessing this modest space in 2006-07, with its original bleachers and hardwood court badly in need of refinishing, that administrators at Hamilton High School began to think big. Enrollment had doubled since the school was built in Sussex, Wis., in 1963. Athletics participation had increased by 33 percent, six sports programs had been added, and interior training space was at a premium. Track athletes were running hurdles down terrazzo hallways. Cheerleaders were doing stunts over library carpeting. Field sports participants in this evolving era of year-round specialization had no place to practice off-season, as Wisconsin's winters rendered the outdoors off limits.
