State-of-the-art athletic complex and championship winning teams!  

The state-of-the-art complex features the nation’s largest single installation of synthetic turf athletic fields that support football, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey. The new nine acre field design allows the site to retain more rainfall and mitigate drainage and water runoff issues.

McCann Ice Arena

The Francis J. McCann Ice Arena includes 39,000 feet of space, state-of-the-art mechanical systems, expanded locker rooms and training room facilities, and seating for 300 spectators. The building is in use throughout the year - including the summer months - as teams from the Grosse Pointe Hockey Association, Liggett alumni, other area hockey teams, and the residents of the City of Grosse Pointe Woods use the arena and its facilities.

More importantly, we use the facility daily throughout the school year, for skating, as part of the lower and middle school physical education program, and for team play by our middle school teams, and the upper school boys' and girls' varsity ice hockey teams.

For information on securing ice time at the arena, contact McCann Ice Arena manager Richard Lorant at 313.884.4444, Ext. 390.
