New Training Room
Old Training Room
McNary Athletic Training Room Project
We started our booster club at the start of the school year of 2011.
Our first big project was chosen to be a much needed makeover of our athletic training room, which serves all athletic programs in the school. This included necessary rehabilitation equipment to keep our student athletes healthy before and after injury, taping tables, training tables, cabinetry, flooring, structural, plumbing, and electrical changes. We held a dinner and auction the past two years to raise funds for this.
When we began our project in the fall of 2011, our training room was in a small room with no windows or even a sink for the trainer to wash her hands. Thanks to the school, we were able to move it into
a 24 x 34′ room that has a wall of windows. We held a dinner and auction at the end of the past two school years to raise funds for this project. We have been steadily working to remodel this old classroom to accommodate the needed therapy equipment. Thanks to some wonderful local businesses, we were able to have a lot of the work donated. This enabled us to purchase more equipment.
Chris Veit, with Carlson Veit Architects, did the required architectural plans at a tremendous discount, and helped with walking us through the project, which ended up being more entailed than we anticipated.
Steve Miholer, with Salem Keizer Schools Construction Services, spent many hours overseeing our project and coordinating all of the many different contractors who came in to work. His expertise ensured us that things happened in the order that they were supposed to.
Ashland Brothers Concrete Sawing volunteered their time and expertise in cutting out the concrete floor area where the underground plumbing would go, and hauled away the debris.
Viesco Quality Concrete donated the concrete for the replacement floor.
Ferguson Plumbing Supply donated some plumbing supplies.
Oregon Cascade Plumbing donated supplies and MANY hours of their time to dig out the unexpectedly large amount of rock and install underground piping to have water for a whirlpool tub and an ice maker.
Northside Electric donated supplies and their time to rewire the room to accommodate the new equipment.
H & B Painting gave us a discount on painting the room.
Amanda McNeely did the interior design.
Culver Glass donated the large wall mirror that will allow athletes to check their correct exercise posture.
Eric Frizelle with Greenberry Construction donated the labor for the mirror installation.
Steve Agan, with Building Maintenance and Improvements installed our shelving units.
This project has taken a lot longer than anticipated and has run into some construction setbacks, but as soon as the ordered taping and training tables come in, we will be finally finished. This project has shown what great things the community and local business can accomplish when we work together. This room will be a great benefit in helping injured athletes with their rehabilitation, and help prevent future injuries.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
