Athletic Facilities at Belen

The athletic facilities at Belen Jesuit complement the excellent physical education program and interscholastic sports offered by the school. The Roberto C. Goizueta Innovation Center includes our beautiful gymnasium with two basketball courts, named Leyva Court, and locker rooms. In the summer, it is home to the summer camp office. The Gian Zumpano Aquatic Center and an outdoor basketball court are located on the west side of the campus. The De la Cruz Stadium is where spectators gather to watch soccer matches, football games, and track & field competitions. The scoreboard sits facing the stadium from the north and was made possible by the support of the Fund for Belen. The concession stand and restrooms reside next to the scoreboard. The Hernández Field is used by athletes who play soccer, lacrosse, and football, and by track and cross-country runners. At the north end of the campus is the baseball facility, featuring two baseball fields, an indoor hitting facility, and locker rooms.

Coming soon is the Roberto Surís Athletic Center. The three-story, nearly 60,000-square-foot building will feature two workout rooms, a gym, two dozen treadmills, ERG Machines, golf simulators, and much more! Also in development is a reimagined sports complex that will incorporate all the athletics facilities. 

The athletic facilities at Belen Jesuit are top-rate and give our student-athletes all they need to succeed.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
