Facilities

Palma makes every attempt to upgrade and modernize athletic facilities so that they can best serve the needs of our student-athletes.
The on-campus outdoor facilities include an all-weather, eight-lane track that surrounds a well-maintained synthetic turf field. The field enables the soccer, lacrosse and football teams to practice on an even, reliable surface, regardless of the weather conditions. The Brother O’Grady Memorial Baseball Field, which can seat 300+ spectators, is the home field for Palma’s championship baseball team.

The gym is home to Palma’s basketball and volleyball teams, and has room to host more than 1,000 spectators. It houses two locker rooms and a fully equipped weight training facility. A dedicated wrestling room, located in the newest building on the west side of campus, provides a unique space for practice.

Due to space availability and to control costs, some of Palma’s practices and events are held at partnering venues. Hartnell College is home to the water polo, swimming and tennis teams. Corral de Tierra Country Club hosts the golf team. Beautiful Rabobank Stadium is the home field for Palma’s football, soccer and lacrosse teams. All of these venues are an easy drive from Palma’s campus.
    • Palma athletes are dedicated to their sport, but coaches and athletes know that classwork comes first.
