Completed in October 2004, the renovated Cahall-Sandspur Field and new Barker Family Stadium give Rollins College one of the finest soccer facilities in NCAA Division II.
According to campus history, the open field at the corner of Park and Holt Avenues was dubbed the “Sandspur Bowl” in honor of the prickly sandspurs so commonly found there. Men’s soccer became a varsity sport at Rollins in 1956, with then-College President Hugh McKean serving as the first head coach. Women’s soccer was played as a club sport at the College for several years before becoming a varsity sport in 1997.
With a renovated grass field that meets requirements for hosting NCAA tournament competition, new drainage and watering systems that ensure a top-quality playing surface and chair-back seating for 500 fans, Cahall-Sandspur Field and Barker Family Stadium have launched a new era in Rollins College soccer.
