Phase III: New Hall of Fame Room & Locker Rooms
This phase will provide upgraded video/broadcasting systems, and upgrade the audio and video systems. In addition, this phase will also highlight a newly renovated president's room to showcase all the members of the St. John's Hall of Fame. Along with the new Hall of Fame room, we will give our locker rooms a much needed face lift.

Phase IV: Office Space & Sports Medicine Renovations
By providing decking over the existing auxiliary gym, we will create more office space and allow for us to re-organize the spaces located around Carnesecca. Along with the office renovations, we will upgrade our sports medicine facilities.

Phase V: Exterior Facility Enhancements
The final phase will enhance the exterior of the building with Clad exterior with metal and stone similar to Taffner Field House and Kaiser Field. We hope you will consider adding your name to the list and help make this dream a reality.
