By Design Learning Centre is located in the Fieldhouse at the Athlete Institute Campus on Highway 9 in Mono, Ontario. In addition to our kindergarten room located on the first floor of the Fieldhouse, our students enjoy four learning rooms and a gathering area on the second floor.
Our partnership with the Athlete Institute also includes the use of the Fieldhouse gym, sports dome, Bear Cub Coffee & Espresso Bar, outdoor basketball courts and soccer fields.
Athlete Institute has over 12,000 square feet of climate controlled gymnasium space, featuring a fully sprung hardwood floor that is equal in quality to the best courts in the world. It has 3 FIBA and high school lined courts with a total of 6 retractable NBA regulation basketball rims and backboards.
Fully opaque, the insulated sports dome is 24,000 square feet of year-round playing – ‘omni grass’ synthetic turf surface. Currently, we use the dome for gym and indoor recess, but it can easily accommodate virtually any outdoor field sport.
Bear Cub Coffee & Espresso Bar
The in-house coffee shop located on the second floor of the Fieldhouse is the perfect place for visitors, facilitators, and community supporters to meet. Our students also enjoy the opportunity to purchase a cookie or drink from the shop with permission from their parents and supervision from staff.
Outdoor Basketball Courts
Athlete Institute offers three full size basketball courts with Plexiglass backboards for use during gym and/or recess.
The International Standard grass soccer field and indoor turf dome allow for activities in any weather, all year long!
