Rockford University’s outdoor sports teams will now be able to use the Indoor Sports Center, thanks to a new partnership between the school and the Rockford Park District.
The students will be able to practice at both the indoor and outdoor facilities on the Mercyhealth Sportscore Two campus.
Rockford University President Eric Fulcomer says the benefits of the partnership go beyond just the college and the Park District.
“It looks good for Rockford University to be out there. It’s good for the Rockford Park District to get that exposure. And, it’s good for our community, because these people come and utilize the businesses in Rockford, and they get a positive impression of our community,” he said.
Officials for both parties say the agreement has been in the works for years.
