Athletic Facilities

Robert J. Stransky Memorial Complex

The Robert J. Stransky Memorial Complex is the home of the football, soccer, lacrosse and track and field teams at Canisius. Those teams all compete on Koessler Field, the first component of the Complex. Koessler Field has a state-of-the-art synthetic surface for play in all types of weather elements. The field also has an extra layer of padding under its surface to minimize the impact to student-athletes. The track has eight lanes so it is able to host large invitationals.

Through the generosity of a number of donors, a new locker room facility for both the home and visiting teams was erected. The building has 55 lockers for each team, a training room and an officials dressing room.


Bernard J. Kennedy Fieldhouse

The Kennedy Fieldhouse was not only a much-needed facility at the school, but it is certainly one of the most attractive and contemporary buildings one will see driving down Delaware Avenue. During the school day, the wall-to-wall hardwood floor allows the Physical Education classes the opportunity to run multiple sections of sports to accommodate the Canisius population.

The basketball, volleyball, and wrestling teams call the Kennedy their home court. Additionally, virtually every team will utilize the facility for indoor practices.

Additional athletic facilities on campus at 1180 Delaware Avenue include a second gym (in addition to the Kennedy Field House), a swimming pool, Tripi Field for practices and club sports, and a state of the art weight room where student-athletes receive guidance from a strength and conditioning coach.
