Our sixteen-acre campus includes a wide variety of multi-use fields for the wide variety of offerings that Bishop Diego provides. With two gymnasiums, the Main Gym (often referred to in the media as The Brick House) and the newer Practice Gym, our student-athletes are exposed to multiple basketball and volleyball courts, including an outdoor sand volleyball court. The field space includes a beautiful baseball and softball field for the spring season of sport. In the fall, this field is transformed into the varsity football practice field and houses our junior varsity home football contests. In the winter season of sport, our boys and girls soccer teams play home contests here. Our boys and girls tennis teams hold practices at our three on-campus courts.
Najera-Schmidt Memorial Weight Room
In 2008, the generosity of alumni and Cardinal benefactors allowed the school to renovate our weight room. Arguably the best equipped high school weight room in Santa Barbara, this 3,128 square foot facility is used regularly by both our athletic programs and our student's enrolled in our weight lifting classes during the school day. It is directly attached to our Athletic Training Room, where our Athletic Trainer can work with and monitor student-athletes who are doing rehabilitation work.
The Brick House (Main Gym)
The main gym, often refered to as "The Brick House", is the home venue for both our basketball and volleyball programs. The stands can accomodate up to 630 fans to cheer on and support our teams. The walls and rafters are filled with CIF Championship and League Championship banners recognizing past great seasons. The boys and girls locker rooms are on either end of the court.
Our 9,000 square foot practice gym was built back in 2007. It contains a full length, regulation size basketball court, as well as two smaller courts that run side to side. These two smaller courts can also be set up as volleyball courts. Other indoor sports have utilized this space including indoor soccer! This space allows us to have up to three basketball, or three volleyball teams practicing at once when combined with our main gym.
