SRJC is extremely proud of its spacious multipurpose gymnasium that was built in 1982. Demonstrating its planned versatility, the sports complex is comprised of three regulation basketball courts, three volleyball courts, and six badminton courts, offering a seating capacity in excess of 2,000 spectators. All varsity basketball and volleyball home contests are played in Haehl Pavilion, as well as local regional high school basketball playoffs, All-Star games, and even university level volleyball, providing fans with exciting college and high school competitions.
Frequently selected to host the California State Wrestling Championships, Haehl continues to attract the attention of outside groups including the Harlem Globetrotters, Special Olympics, Girl Scout's Sports Expo, Firefighters vs. 49ers Basketball and, at one time, the Golden State Warriors. An excellent facility for basketball camps and high school summer league play, Haehl Pavilion is also home to the Bear Cub Athletic Trust's Wall of Fame. Acknowledging many past outstanding athletes and coaches, SRJC Hall of Fame inductees' plaques can be viewed in the rear foyer of the pavilion.
Instructional classes, sports activities, and special fund raisers notwithstanding, Haehl Pavilion is also utilized each year for the President's Community Address, the Press Democrat Awards, the Clo Bowl Banquet, and the JC's Nursing Program graduation ceremonies.
Completing the list of comprehensive facility amenities are three coaching offices, two team locker rooms, a first aid room, conference room, and, of course, a well-equipped snack bar.
Built in 1935, this picturesque, historic structure has long been the center of our indoor Physical Education classes. Prior to the construction of Haehl Pavilion, Tauzer Gymnasium - an ivy cloaked brick building - was home to the men's and women's varsity basketball teams as well as a gymnastic arena. Currently, a variety of courses are taught in Tauzer Gym throughout the day beginning with early morning yoga and ending with folk and ballroom dance in the evening. Other classes such as fencing, aerobics, Tai Chi, hip hop and body conditioning are also taught in Tauzer Gym. During the fall, Tauzer Gym is home to the SRJC wrestling team.
