Q: Is there AC/Heat and is it hot/cold in the building?
A: The Capital Sports Center is located in a former Air Force Hangar. Unfortunately there is no AC in the building. We do try to mitigate the heat with opening doors for cross-breezes, swamp coolers, air vents in the ceiling to pull hot air out, and fans around the facility. PLEASE plan accordingly with extra water, ice, personal fans, etc. We have cold water and drinks available for purchase, as well as two drinking fountains to refill water bottles. In the Winter, it is cold in here, albeit not as cold as it is outside, but still cold. Please plan accordingly as a spectator.
