Players got the opportunity to test out the new Indoor Practice Facility this week at Notre Dame.
Notre Dame’s indoor facilities were in need of an overhaul for a long time. The University used this off-season to do just that by building a brand new indoor facility for the football team that opened up yesterday with some OTA work by the team.
Notre Dame’s old indoor facilities had been limiting in the past, but that is no longer the case with a full sized field and much higher ceilings. The Irish had previously used the Loftus Sports Center for indoor practice. The 30 year old complex had lower ceilings that impacted special teams practice and featured a track around the football field that caused some safety concerns at times.
The Loftus was also being used for upwards of 18 hours a day during the season which caused logistics nightmares as well. That will no longer be a concern for Brian Kelly and his staff as they design their practice schedules.
