The Student Activities Complex (SAC) is located at 1300 Joe Battle Blvd. in El Paso, Texas. The seating capacity is 11,000. The SAC is equipped with a granular-infill synthetic turf sports field, an all-weather eight-lane track, and a high-tech video board. It is used primarily by SISD students, athletes, coaches, staff, and administration for athletic events such as football games, soccer games, track meets, our Volunteer After School Sports Program championship events for elementary students, and Special Olympics. The SAC is also used by the Fine Arts Department for band competitions, mariachi concerts, and other performing events.
The Socorro ISD Regional Education Recreational Facility (Aquatics Center) is located at the south side of the SAC at 1257 Southview. It consists of an indoor competition eight lane 25 yard pool, a recreational pool, water slides, a whirlpool, and a party room. It also has an outside recreational pool with water slides and a children’s play area. The Aquatic Center is used by SISD students, athletes, employees, and members of the community for events such as water aerobics, lap swimming, competitive swimming practice, UIL swim meets, 3rd grade Learn to Swim lessons, adaptive physical education swimming, club swimming team practice, and public recreational swimming.
