Welcome to the Mira Costa Athletic Complex Virtual Grand Opening!
The Mira Costa High School Athletic Complex is a 71,200 square-foot facility featuring a 20,500 square foot 3-court competition gym with a capacity for 2,100 spectators. The facility also includes an 8,000 square foot auxiliary pavilion gym with a sweeping panoramic view of the football field and East Manhattan Beach. In addition, the building features 4 locker rooms, 6 team rooms, a 1,200 square foot/60-person large classroom, two sprung-floor flex rooms, a 3,500 square foot weight room that opens to the outdoors adjoining Waller Stadium, a 3,200 square foot wrestling room, a state of the art training room, an auxiliary weight room, an auxiliary training room, and a variety of conference and office space for coaches and staff. Additional features of the building include an entry way that pays homage to Mira Costa’s rich athletic tradition, including a ceiling feature created out of wood from the original floor of Fisher Gym, space to highlight the program’s tradition of success, and a Hall of Fame spotlighting some of the outstanding athletes and programs that illustrate the legacy that forms the foundation of the Athletic program as it exists today.
We can't wait to welcome people into the new MCHS Athletic Complex in person, but in the meantime, here's a video glimpse into this amazing new facility (click here). Thank you to the Manhattan Beach community for making this possible
