Stone Center for Recreation

If you are interested in getting and staying active you have come to the right place!

Whether you want to join a group fitness class, set your own pace on the indoor track, get your heart pumping on a cardio machine, pump iron, play a game of basketball (or volleyball or tennis or floor hockey), or play an intramural sport, we’ve got something for you.

Students, faculty and staff may use the center with their Alma College ID cards. Community members may purchase memberships to the Stone Center, which include pool privileges at the Hogan Center.

Our Facility

Our 53,000-square-foot facility offers four basketball, volleyball and/or tennis courts on the main level with options for roller hockey, inline skating, dodgeball and indoor soccer.

The fitness room houses 26 cardiovascular machines: eight treadmills, nine stationary bikes, five stair climbers, three elliptical trainers, one rowing machine, and a variety of weight machines and free weights.

Multi-Purpose Room

The facility’s 1,750-square-foot multi-purpose room is used for aerobics, dance, fencing and martial arts classes.

Suspended Running Track

A suspended three-lane track rims the facility; 7.7 laps equals one mile on the inside lane and 7.4 laps equals one mile on the outside lane.

Shower/Locker Facilities

Shower and locker facilities are also available for use in the Stone Center. The lockers are designed for daily use only.

Climbing Wall

A 600-square-foot climbing wall featuring eight belay stations and lead climbing ropes makes up most of the Center’s west wall.

No experience is required to use the climbing wall during open hours (see below). Anyone 13 or under must be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 years must be signed in by an adult. All required equipment is provided and a limited number of climbing shoes are available for use. Either climbing shoes or clean sneakers may be worn while using the wall.
