ATLANTA – The Atlanta Dream announced today an agreement with Agnes Scott College to make the Woodruff Athletic Complex the team’s official practice facility during the 2021 season.
The Dream practiced at both Georgia State and Agnes Scott during the 2019 season, but will now spend the entire upcoming season on the Scotties’ campus, starting with training camp on Sunday, April 25.
“The partnership with Agnes Scott College is a great opportunity to ensure women are viewed as first movers – in athletics, in education and in life,” said Dream head coach Nicki Collen. “Working with an all-female college and having the chance to bring in the best athletes to their campus is good business for both of us and the community, where we will work together on issues that are important to women.”
“We are excited that the Atlanta Dream has chosen Agnes Scott College as their home and welcome them to campus and to the Decatur community,” said Agnes Scott College Athletic Director Markesha M. Henderson. “This collaboration provides an opportunity to elevate women’s sports on all levels and is just the starting point for what I see as future growth for both of our organizations.”
Located just seven miles east of Downtown Atlanta, the Woodruff Athletic Complex is located on the Agnes Scott campus in Decatur, Ga.
