About Us

The JM McDonald Sports Complex is a 501(c)3 organization.

Our mission is to provide the entire community with affordable, family-oriented programming and events in a safe, recreational environment.


The JM McDonald Sports Complex is an 80,000 square foot multi-purpose venue located in Cortland, NY. The complex is a full entertainment arena featuring concerts, carnivals, family events, consumer shows and events, as well as home to the Cortland-Homer Golden Eagles High School Hockey team, YMCA Gymnastics, Crown City Rollerz Roller Derby team and The Fitness Gap work out facility.

Opening its doors in September of 2004, the JM McDonald Sports Complex was established as a non-profit organization designed to meet the sports and recreational indoor needs of Cortland and surrounding counties.

The Complex is not publicly funded; it receives its revenues from rentals, public fees, donations and private grants. These grants have assisted in the construction and equipment costs of the sports complex. In addition, a grant was issued for the purchase of supplies and equipment needed for the implementation of the CHAMP program. Project CHAMP is the Cortland Homer After School Mentorship Program and was created to provide fitness and academic mentorship for the Cortland and Homer School Districts.
