Second Stadium - Student Activity Facility
5105 Franz road
Katy, TX 77493
Estimated Project Timeline
Concrete Stadium - Seating, Press Box, Restrooms, Concessions and Field House
Seating for 12,000 with appropriate restroom and concession spaces. A press box is planned to accommodate our District program to support coaches, media, Live Action Media Broadcast System (LAMBS) II and District staff.
The field house provides a space for the athletes and officials to change and prepare for the game. The current Rhodes Stadium field house is approximately 9800 SF and consists of two (2) locker rooms, restrooms and support space. The proposal for 12,000 SF will include additional space
for coed training rooms, police office, EMT room, and meeting area for coaches.
A second floor shell space is planned for above the field house for future build out for multipurpose space and the Athletic Department.
This facility will benefit both Athletic and Fine Arts departments as well as providing flexible multi-use space.
Ample on site concrete parking will be provided on site to support the facilities.
The Live Action Media Broadcast System (LAMBS) II is not just a TV and scoreboard. Students enrolled in the Audio Engineering and Film courses at the Katy ISD Miller Career & Technology Center have the opportunity to train, and if successful, to work as a member of the LAMBS crew which operates the video board at the stadiums.
Students apply to be part of the crew for each football game to run the five live action cameras and control functions such as instant replay, commercials, splash video graphics, or serve as Technical Director. Skills prepare students for professional employment in such areas as television production, live action sports, commercials, studio production and work on both independent and professional films.
