Conlan Center

The Conlan Center

The Conlan Center, home of Dominican intercollegiate athletics, features regulation basketball and volleyball courts, a fitness center, training room, multipurpose room, men’s and women’s locker rooms, team meeting rooms, a swimming pool and Athletics staff offices. It is an excellent facility for our students, alumni and staff plus Dominican neighbors to pursue a fit and healthy lifestyle. Dedicated in 2000 in honor of the fifth president of the University, Sister Samuel Conlan, O.P. , the Conlan Center has gained a reputation as being one of the finest small recreation facilities in Northern California. Its gymnasium is home to the Dominican basketball teams and women’s volleyball. The gymnasium is open for student use, including intramural competition. The weight room underwent changes from the floor up in summer 2014 and features all new fitness equipment.

John F. Allen Athletics Complex

Officially dedicated on November 2, 2012, the John F. Allen Athletics Complex is a state-of-the-art facility located on the west end of campus, adjacent to the Conlan Center. The complex, named in honor of the chair emeritus of the Dominican Board of Trustees, is anchored by a new regulation 120-by-76 yard multi-purpose synthetic turf field – named in honor of Trustee and donor Jerry Kennelly. The field is designed for the Penguins’ soccer teams, lacrosse team, and community use including programs that benefit under-served youth. The site encompasses Dominican’s historic amphitheater, plus a restroom/sports medicine facility.

The complex also contains six new regulation tennis courts and a new parking lot with 100 available spaces. Vehicle entry into the complex is from Belle Avenue, across the street from Marin Tennis Club. Pedestrian access from campus is accessible via a foot bridge from the Conlan Center parking lot.
