Aug. 6, 2008
Arizona State University and the athletic department appreciates theinterest and enthusiasm for its upcoming football season. Coach Erickson andthe team enjoys fans attending the practices and those held at the KajikawaPractice Fields continue to be open to the public. However, as the newindoor facility continues to proceed through the final logistical stages, itwill be closed to the general public. Space limitations within the indoorfacility requires some adjustments with practice policies, as the safety ofathletes and fans is of the utmost importance. Anyone not directlyaffiliated with the team will have to be escorted by an athletic departmentstaff member to gain entrance.
'The process is new to everyone, including every small detail, and we wantto be make sure our training, sports performance and equipment staff becomefamiliar and acclimated with the building and that we are compliant with allbuilding codes and policies,' says Mike Chismar, Senior Associate AthleticDirector. 'Once the building is fully ready to handle the day-to-dayoperations on a consistent basis and all policies and procedures have beencompleted, ASU athletic administration will discuss the next step inaccommodating Sun Devils fans who want to see the the new facility. We thankeveryone for their patience and understanding as we begin a new phase of SunDevil athletics.'
