Facilities

Plans by Onxley Architects to convert the current main building into a gym with a performing arts stage.

Currently, Lake Pointe has neither a gym nor a regulation sports field on its Lake Wylie campus. Cross Country is the only varsity sport which can support "home" events on campus. Following is a snapshot of LPA's facility history and future:

Past athletic facilities

Since the athletic program was begun in fall of 2008, Mariner sports teams have relied upon the provision and cooperative support of several local churches and organizations.

  • Blessed Hope Baptist Church and Christian School, York
  • Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, Rock Hill
  • Lake Wylie Christian Assembly, Lake Wylie
  • Scherer Memorial Presbyterian Church, Lake Wylie
  • YMCA at the Crossings, York

We are deeply grateful for these organizations and their leaders for supporting Mariner sports. They are a testimony to generosity.

Present athletic facilities

 
Cross Country

Home race events and practices are held on the LPA campus through the cooperation of Crescent Realty and Duke Energy, which allow Lake Pointe to lease the adjacent power lines property for a significant portion of the 3.1 mile running course.

Volleyball and Basketball

Court sport practices and home events are held at the gym of Blessed Hope Christian School in York. The quality facility is available to LPA temporarily as Blessed Hope makes improvements to its high school, and LPA is very grateful for Blessed Hope's generosity in sharing its facilities. Blessed Hope's competitive sports program has a decades-long history to build upon when it restarts, and Lake Pointe leaders look forward to the day in the near future, when the Flames will again need their gym.

Soccer

Soccer practices take place at Scherer Memorial Presbyterian Church in Lake Wylie. Last year, games took place at new fields managed by the Clover Town Recreation Department, near Clover's Memorial Stadium.

Golf

Golf practices and home matches have been held at Tega Cay Golf Club near Fort Mill and at Carolina Crossings Golf Course near York.

Other athletic events

LPA's campus has three small fields that allow for flag football, ultimate frisbee, outdoor volleyball, and recreational sports.

Future athletic facilities

Architectural plans provide for a future campus gymnasium. Once a new academic building is constructed, LPA's 100-foot square main building is slated to be converted into a regulation gym with exercise and weight-training equipment. In addition, the plans provide for the space to be utilized for  performing arts practices and events, thanks to the addition of a larger stage, dressing rooms, and supporting AV and lighting equipment.
