PCA’s Gym Gets Major Makeover
For the first time since Prattville Christian Academy’s gym was built in 2008, the gym floor was redesigned and replaced just in time for summer practices to begin in advance of the 2020-2021 athletic seasons.
During the demolition and construction process, PCA’s gym was closed, so coaches and student-athletes were eager to see the transformation when the multi-week project was completed last month. And their reactions made the project absolutely worthwhile!
“I am so excited for PCA, our coaches, and most importantly, our students,” said Tara Osborne, PCA’s Athletic Director. “It was so wonderful to see everyone’s faces as they walked in to see it on the first day the gym was opened back up. We couldn’t have made this happen without PCA’s faithful supporters.”
The new floor features a natural wood, purple stain to accentuate the lighter color, and larger lettering so there’s no mistake when you enter PCA’s gym that you are in the home of the Panthers! The new floor sponsorship will provide annual maintenance funds to keep the floor in pristine condition for many years.
In addition to the new floor, all of the gym’s lighting was recently converted to more energy-efficient LED bulbs, newly-installed cameras were mounted for live streaming services, and the bleachers have been repaired for maximum capacity at future school and athletic events.
