Baseball Diamond - Cook Sypher Field
Sypher Field is home to the Santa Rosa Junior College Varsity Baseball Team. Sypher is an outstanding, sythetic turf facility that plays fast and true. There is a scoreboard some 40 feet above the fence in left field. Sypher Field has a combination press box and concession stand directly behind the backstop. The facility includes two full length batting cages and five ball toss, and these stations are covered with synthetic turf. To add to the character of the facility, oak trees frame the area outside the playing surface


Dance Room
The 2,400 square foot dance room is a state of the art dance studio environment. The newly installed sprung floor is easy on the legs and insures softness to the body for high impact movements. It is covered with Timestep flooring material. This versatile covering is ideal for barefeet in modern dance classes, as well as dance shoes needed for ballet and/or jazz. The powerful music system is suspended off the floor, providing a generous skip free stereo sound. There are mirrors covering the front and one side wall. Three walls have fixed ballet barres with portable barres available to larger ballet classes. It truly is a model dance studio setting.


Football & Track - Bailey Field
Bailey Field is home to SRJC football and men's and women's track and field.

The Bear Cub football team plays on hybrid bermuda grass that sits on a sand base. Bailey Field is considered one of the best playing surfaces in California community college athletics. The eight lane all weather track is a tremendous surface for sprinters and distance runners. Bailey Field has two shot put and two discus rings for field events.

A new state of the art press box was installed on the east side of the stadium in 2002 to compliment the existing press box on the west side of Bailey. Both press boxes provide excellent views for video or film work. The new box is wired for computors to log in statistics or reporting for the local media. This top notch facility is framed by numerous oak trees, including the beautiful oak that sits three yards out of the back of the north endzone.


Gymnasiums
Haehl Gym

SRJC is extremely proud of its spacious multipurpose gymnasium that was built in 1982. Demonstrating its planned versatility, the sports complex is comprised of three regulation basketball courts, three volleyball courts, and six badminton courts, offering a seating capacity in excess of 2,000 spectators. All varsity basketball and volleyball home contests are played in Haehl Pavilion, as well as local regional high school basketball playoffs, All-Star games, and even university level volleyball, providing fans with exciting college and high school competitions.

Frequently selected to host the California State Wrestling Championships, Haehl continues to attract the attention of outside groups including the Harlem Globetrotters, Special Olympics, Girl Scout's Sports Expo, Firefighters vs. 49ers Basketball and, at one time, the Golden State Warriors. An excellent facility for basketball camps and high school summer league play, Haehl Pavilion is also home to the Bear Cub Athletic Trust's Wall of Fame. Acknowledging many past outstanding athletes and coaches, SRJC Hall of Fame inductees' plaques can be viewed in the rear foyer of the pavilion.

Instructional classes, sports activities, and special fund raisers notwithstanding, Haehl Pavilion is also utilized each year for the President's Community Address, the Press Democrat Awards, the Clo Bowl Banquet, and the JC's Nursing Program graduation ceremonies.

Completing the list of comprehensive facility amenities are three coaching offices, two team locker rooms, a first aid room, conference room, and, of course, a well-equipped snack bar.

Tauzer Gym
Built in 1935, this picturesque, historic structure has long been the center of our indoor Physical Education classes. Prior to the construction of Haehl Pavilion, Tauzer Gym - an ivy cloaked brick building - was home to the men's and women's varsity basketball teams as well as a gymnastic arena. Currently, a variety of courses are taught in Tauzer Gym throughout the day beginning with early morning yoga and ending with folk and ballroom dance in the evening. Other classes such as fencing, aerobics, Tai Chi, hip hop and body conditioning are also taught in Tauzer Gym. During the fall, Tauzer Gym is home to the SRJC wrestling team.


Soccer Field - Cook Sypher Field
Nestled in the southwest corner of the Santa Rosa Junior College Campus is Cook Sypher Field, home of the Bear Cub soccer teams. Seating over 200 spectators, the bleachers look over the field of competition - a spacious 120 by 80 yards of rye bluegrass.

Plans for improving the soccer field are in the works, given the increasing popularity of soccer that is seen at all levels. Included in the proposed improvements are plans for expanded seating capacity and artificial field turf, among other exciting changes.
