Warriors’ new practice facility features numerous state-of-the-art amenities
The Golden State Warriors have tricked out their new practice facility as they make the move to the state-of-the-art Chase Center to start their 2019-20 season. The facility is decked out with numerous perks and amenities, including a court with a facial recognition tracking system that measures every shot, an underwater treadmill, sleep pods, a mini-barber shop, and showers that can comfortably fit 7-footers, according to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols.
The Warriors’ new $1.5 billion arena will offer plenty for these players, including a locker room with a ceiling that echoes the ceiling at Oracle.
Biofreeze has sponsored this new performance center, with its logo emblazoned across the two full-length basketball courts, a 4,000 square foot weight room, a sauna, a cryo treatment chamber, and a hydro room with float tanks for player recovery. Along with these state-of-the-art practice enhancements, the Warriors, who were housed in the oldest arena in the league back at Oracle, will now have a lounge, a kitchen, and a theater, which they will get to use for film sessions:

Golden State has gone from having one of the oldest facilities to a brand-new one with plenty of features to reward this team for its five-year run. But this addition doesn’t come without the ownership’s expectation of bringing home more titles along with the massive revenue it expects to make during the first few years after moving to downtown San Francisco, the heart of The Bay’s accessibility.
The hope is that this practice facility will provide everything a player could hope for without the need to seek it outside of the team, as some do with their individual trainers in the offseason.
