Built in 2010
The AARC is the home to the state-of-the-art Schoenecker Arena, which is the home to the St. Thomas varsity men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. Able to hold more than 1,800 fans, Schoenecker Arena has been home to numerous large events, including multiple Tommie-Johnnie basketball games and multiple large concerts and shows. When not in use by varsity teams, the facility is open for use by students and faculty.
Steve Fritz court, named for the legendary former basketball player and current St. Thomas Athletic Director, is a parquet-style maple floor, and sits in the center of an arena that features a 10-foot by 16-foot video board and 36 Bose speakers, providing a DIII basketball experience like none other.
