The Edward J. Lavino Field House is one of the finest athletic buildings in any independent school in the country. The structure has been the site of many County, State and Eastern Tournaments, as well as providing an excellent facility for our student-athletes.
- Arena Area - The main arena (length 313 feet; width - 134 feet; extreme height - 44 feet) has a 12 mm, rubber Mondo surface with three combination basketball-volleyball-tennis courts, a four-lane banked 200 meter track, a long jump pit, shot put area, and an eight-lane straight-away.
- In the Wings - On one side of the arena are the varsity competition basketball court and a six-lane competition swimming pool which is equipped with an underwater window and heated competitor benches. On the other side are housed the wrestling room, a combination basketball-volleyball-fencing court, a state of the art fitness center, and an athletic training room. Both the fitness center and the training room are professionally staffed.
- Skating Rink - At the far end of the arena is the recently renovated skating rink, six locker rooms, and a snack bar and gathering room.
- Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame -In the front of the building is a lounge - the home of the Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has honored such past greats as Dennis Michie (West Point football) and Phil Riker (Olympic swimmer).
The Lavino Field House was opened in 1951 with completion of the then open ice rink with a fireplace in 1954. The facility roof was added in 1964 with the addition of a meeting area around the fireplace. Donations allowed for major renovations in 1992 and following completion, the name was changed to the Loucks Ice Center in 1993.
The Center supports The Lawrenceville School ice hockey teams, student and faculty skates and numerous outside hockey clubs.
The squash courts at The Lawrenceville School are 10 International Armourcoat (plaster) courts built by Anderson Courts and Sport Surfaces. This facility features outstanding spectator viewing, a lounge, and coaches' office.

The Lawrenceville School believes in giving the best possible care to the student athlete. Through support of the school and alumni, the Athletic Training Room has evolved into one of the best secondary school facilities in the country. The Athletic Training Room is over 1200 square feet in size and contains state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment. This room allows for injured athletes to perform their rehabilitation exercises with comfort and ease. The athletic training room is also large enough to hold the student athletic training classes. The room is perfectly located on the lower level of the Lavino Fieldhouse with easy access from the outside, all indoor facilities and the hockey rink.
The athletic trainer has many options when creating a rehabilitation program for the injured athlete. The modalities include: six different electrical stimulation currents, whirlpool, ultrasound, hydrocollators for moist heat, hemaflo2, cryocuffs and ice.

The weight room is also equipped with a variety of cardiovascular machines that are beneficial for those athletes who have sustained an injury and cannot participate in any running activities.
For those athletes that are concerned about weight control, the athletic trainers are equiped with skinfold calipers and computer programs to measure the athlete's percent body fat. There is also a consulting nutritionist that is available to all students.
