In May 2017, the Spirit broke ground on a 1,500 square foot addition and renovation to the team’s locker room. The addition added a player’s lounge, full sized kitchen, a video room with theater style seating and a hot tub. Additionally the renovation updated the weight room, dry stall area and main dressing room.
