College Softball is here at the dome.
March 2nd - Bemidji State vs MSU-Moorhead
March 3rd - Bemidji State vs Winona State
Friday March 12th we will have Hamline vs UW Stevens Point & Bethel vs UW Eau Claire
It is unfortunate that due to regulations there will be no fans for these events. We at the WSPRAC are still excited to see College Softballs return.
The WSPRAC is open for rentals and in accordance with MN State guidelines
Spectators & Fans are currently not allowed due to capacity at change overs . As spectators may return only when capacity allows. We work with our renters on what can be allowed and currently all non-participants are generally not allowed
Face masks are required for anyone using the dome. Social Distancing should be followed as well as permitted with training and game play. Renters and their guest teams are responsible for their own group actions and are expected to make sure all rules are being followed. The lobby is currently closed and bleachers are not being used.
Renters are only allowed in within 5 minutes of start time, Renters will have fields picked up and put back to how they were no more than 5 minutes prior to rental end-time and must leave within 5 minutes of finishing
As Guidelines change to allow more we will accommodate rentals as allowed in the future.
We have always strived for a safe environment here at the West Saint Paul Regional Athletics Center. We have had cleaning & maintenance procedures in place since our opening in 2012 that have kept the WSPRAC a premier facility. From our windows, to our turf, we go above and beyond for cleanliness and safety. We have always had lighting that was considered the benchmark in lighting for participants. We have now gone to LED lighting for even better lighting, which makes for better and safer play.
Earlier in 2020 we encountered a new threat with the 2020 Covid pandemic. This has brought on a few changes to our already top notch procedures. The WSPRAC is a permanent, year round air supported structure. The dome refreshes the air supply regularly, multiple times each day and our commitment to a healthy and safe environment have been in place since the opening of the facility. We have air filters for our incoming air and temporary domes generally have no filtration at all in the design. We have added to our filtration an ionizing-sanitizing system as well. We have also increased our normal sanitizing practices. All of this is to keep the WSPRAC a safe and friendly environment.
The unit that keeps the dome inflated constantly brings in fresh air and will bring enough fresh air in to replenish the domes air in hours and not days as a building does. Take into consideration the amount of air inside the dome itself, a person would be getting 5 times or more fresh air than a standard building. We have an ionizing system in conjunction with our already good numbers for air safety and quality, to increase sanitizing of all the air that is brought in.Our turf has always been of importance in both sanitary and maintenance. For years we have been the only facility that sanitized on a regular schedule. Currently that schedule is being ramped up to deal with the new health issues we are dealing with. We also are one of the few facilities that test our turf density to stay well within the safe zone. These measures are far above what other many other facilities have been practicing.

In November of 2019 we at the WSPRAC had Thomas Testing come in for the third time in a row and test our turf for the industries G-Max numbers. The G-Max testing is a more comprehensive test than what is even used by the NFL and schools for their guidelines.We take the safety of our renters on our turf and very seriously and are proud of our numbers and the confirmation from the testing company.
With a number of 200 considered too hard, we were very happy to come in far below that once again.
Having the testing done, the cleaning and sanitizing we do is all for the safety of our renters.
