Design Description:

The new Seminole Basketball Training Facility at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center is a premiere facility which has been drawing rave reviews for its design and responsiveness to the needs of its student athletes and coaching staff. The three-story, 51,000 square foot facility is now the home of Florida State University men’s and women’s basketball programs and contains the newest technology and finest equipment of any facility currently built of its type.

Construction:

Video Technology is the highlight of the facility. As the team practices, they can be video taped from several camera positions that overlook the courts. The practice tapes are digitally fed to a central computer located in the video production office. The video tape practice sessions are processed, broken down into segments and then transmitted to the coaches offices, the team meeting rooms or to video “smart boards” located in the player’s locker rooms. In this way, immediate reviews and evaluations of the players can be made, enhancing their performance. This same system is available and linked to the Civic Center.
