College Facilities

The De Anza football facility is one of the most modern sports complexes in the state. The stadium has aluminum seats and full press box facilities. 

The Dons play on field turf and it is maintained with extreme care. We take great pride in having one of the best turfs in all of Northern California. We not only have a beautiful grandstand for our fans but we have excellent bleacher facilities for our opponents as well.

Weight Room 

The football squad enjoys the benefits of a spacious, beautiful weight room in the main gym at De Anza College that is second to none. We maintain an excellent balance between free weights and strength conditioning apparatus that enable each athlete to develop to their absolute fullest potential. The key to the success of the weight room is individual instruction and the attention to detail for each student-athlete. Our goal is to never be outworked in this particular area.

Meeting Rooms 

The coaching staff uses all the most current teaching methods and each day starts with "put in" meetings before practice. We believe in running our program just like a Division 1 Program and we try to meet briefly in a classroom setting before each practice and cover the details of what we will be teaching for that day before we go on the field.

Football Offices

De Anza College football offices are very easy to find as they are located facing the  football field. You are welcome to drop by anytime and we will show you our facilities and share our plan and mission with you. Get in on it! This is a GREAT TIME TO BECOME A DON !!!
