Utica College Women's Soccer Camps
Facilities & Directions
Charles A. Gaetano Stadium
Utica College's multi-purpose stadium significantly changed the campus landscape since construction began in the fall of 2001. Home to the Pioneer's varsity field hockey, football, soccer and lacrosse teams, the facility also hosts a number of intramural activities and camps throughout the year. In the Summer of 2014 the College installed the Adirondack Bank Video Board which features a larger than life display with full video capabilities.
Located on the campus's northern edge between the Clark Athletic Center and the Todd & Jen Hutton Sports & Recreation Center, the stadium features grandstand seating for 1,200, an elegant brick façade and gateway entrance, modern press facilities and a state-of-the-art synthetic turf playing field which was resurfaced in 2013.
The stadium bears the name of Pioneer Hall of Famer Charles A. Gaetano, a prominent local business leader and emeritus director of the Utica College Foundation. A formal dedication of the stadium was held in the fall of 2002.
In the fall of 2012 the College announced the naming of Connie Gaetano Plaza, which adjoins the stadium with the College's grass soccer field and baseball diamond. Plaza upgrades included brand new bathroom facilities and fencing to enclose and secure the space.
Todd & Jen Hutton Sports & Recreation Center
Utica College officially opened and dedicated the Todd and Jen Hutton Sports and Recreation Center on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015. The dedication took place prior to the Jen and Todd Hutton Invitational Track and Field Meet, the first home track meet in the College’s history.
Harold “Tom” Clark Jr. and his wife Bernadette pledged $1.4 million toward the dome construction. At a groundbreaking ceremony in April of 2015 Clark announced that the facility would be named for UC President Todd S. Hutton and Hutton’s wife, Jennifer.
The dome – which is the second largest facility of its kind in North America – is 270 feet wide, 500 feet long and 82 feet high. It features an eight-lane, 200-meter NCAA competition indoor track (Connor Sports Protraxx surface), four multi-sport courts, a multi-sport artificial turf practice field (FieldTurf), weight area, locker rooms, equipment checkout area and a concession stand. In addition, it features two sand pits for long jump and triple jump, two pole vault areas, multiple throwing circles, a batting cage and track and field offices.
The 135,000-square foot structure stands just behind Charles A. Gaetano Stadium. Two layers of Teflon-coated polyester, separated by a layer of insulation, are set upon a concrete pad, while two large air-handling units, one at each end of the facility, keep the air-locked structure inflated.
The dome, designed by Alesia & Crewell Architects P.C. and manufactured by Yeadon, was constructed by The Hayner Hoyt Corporation.
