The Bloechl Recreation Center is named in honor of Eileen Wirtz Bloechl ’54 and made possible by the generosity and vision of F. Richard Bloechl.  Construction on the building began in August, 2005 and completed in fall, 2006, replacing the Caroline Hall gymnasium built in 1929.

The new facility, with a capacity of over 500, provides adequate space for volleyball and basketball matches and includes a spacious fitness center (open to students, faculty and the community), four locker rooms, concessions, and a full-size basketball court.  This new space allows students, faculty and staff the opportunity to pursue fitness goals in keeping with today's “wellness’ oriented life style.

Rounding out the athletic facilities are:

  • Caroline Hall Gym, open for small practices and "pick up" games, and the Student Dance Associations annual spring concert.  
  • Soccer Fields
  • Fitness Center

Mount Mary's athletic facilities are available to the general public for a rental fee. Please refer to our informational brochure and liability form for details. Contact us via email or phone at (414) 443-3644 for further details.

Student Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) consists of one representative from each of the six sports. Representatives can be appointed by the coach or elected by the members of the team. The purpose of the SAAC is to provide a means of communication from student athletes to the athletic administration. The SAAC will provide feedback to the administration on issues critical to student-athlete welfare. The athletic administration shall seek input from the SAAC regarding NCAA rules changes and Mount Mary University policy changes. The SAAC will meet at least three times each semester. If the appointed/elected SAAC member is unable to attend a meeting she may ask a teammate to attend in her place.

See the complete SAAC Constitution and Bylaws.

Summer Athletic Camps

The Athletics Department at Mount Mary is host to a series of summer sports camps, open to grades 5-12. The camps are held from June through August and are designed to develop fundamental and new skills in a variety of sports and recreational activities.
