The Maryland volleyball program has announced plans to create a new team suite adjacent to the Terps' home arena, the XFINITY Center Pavilion.
"On behalf of the program, I'd like to thank the administration and donors for helping us take the next step," head coach Steve Aird said. "We are so fortunate that we have an incredible community and university behind us and we will look to make them all proud."
The relocation project will feature an entry way, a team lounge and a locker room area. It will be equipped with the latest technology to help the student-athletes perform at a high level both on the court and in the classroom.
"We have been fortunate to recruit student-athletes who believe in our vision," added Aird. "We are selling out matches, we travel the right way and our gear is elite. This locker room is another aspect to providing our team with the best possible experience, and it will have an incredible impact on the future of our program."
Construction on the new locker room will begin this fall and the team will move in prior to the 2018 season.

The foyer will provide student-athletes will direct entrance from the Pavilion into the locker room. It will feature digital video boards and a glass Under Armour showcast to display our incomparable relationship with the outfitter.
The team lounge will serve as a study hall, meeting space and fueling center for the student-athletes. The team will be able to study video using the latest technology in video analysis. The lounge will be equipped with a computer work area and a nutritional kitchenette.
The Maryland volleyball locker room will be on par with the best of the nation to prepare the student-athletes for practices and matches. The area will feature wood lockers and a state-of-the-art sound system.
