A Transformation

Championship facilities for an elite program

The transformation of the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex has begun and we need your help to see it through. Forever Dutch began with outdoor field enhancements followed by the expansion of P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium. Next is the building’s renovation and possible additional construction.
