Home of the BCC baseball team, Courter Field is one of the Pacific Northwest's top baseball facilities. During the spring of 1994, the field was named in honor of Al Courter, owner of Honda Auto Center of Bellevue.

Courter has been a significant donor for a variety of projects and programs at BCC such as the North West Center for Emerging Technologies (NWCET), which was completed in 1997, and the Early Childhood Center which is was completed in 2002. 1983, major seating renovations were completed. Permanent, concrete-based bleachers were added to provide a seating capacity of 1,000. In 2000, the seating structure was re-painted and replaced. In addition, two full-size artificial turf batting cages were installed along left field. The field also features a full-size tarp which covers the entire infield. This has been an integral part of Bellevue's capability of eliminating rainout games. Recently, the first wireless inning-by-inning scoreboard in western Washington was installed. The $30,000 scoreboard, funded by President Floten, the Puget Sound Baseball League, Taylor Baseball Club, and U.S. Bank, was illuminated for the first time in fall of 2001. In 2003, Courter Field received a facelift with the construction of a new press box and concession stand courtesy of Chaffey Homes and the Puget Sound Senior Baseball League.

Because of the large size, condition of the playing surface, and full enclosure, Courter Field has been a hotbed for major tournaments each summer. The Brandy Pugh (formerly Vern Bean) Memorial Tourney, the most prestigious and longest-running youth invitational in the region, is held annually at Courter field in July. Another annual event is the American Legion district tournament hosted by Lakeside Recovery Centers,which will be held at Courter Field for the third consecutive year. The field has also played host to the Connie Mack Pacific Regionals, Mickey Mantle State Championships, National Prep Championships and Century 21's Fantasy Camp All-Star Game in August 2001. The event, which was coordinated in conjunction with the Major League Baseball All-Star Week, featured Major League Hall of Famers Harmon Killebrew and the late Tug McGraw

A public address stereo system was designed for Courter Field by Morgan Sound, outfitters for Everett Memorial Stadium's (home of the Everett Aqua Sox) sound system. The actual playing surface is considered by many as one of the truest fields around. The dimensions of the diamond are: 330' down the lines, 365' in the alleys, and 385' to center. Because of the dimensions down the line and a consistent wind that blows across from left to right field, Courter Field is considered by many as a 'pitcher's ballpark'.

Semi-annual maintenance procedures include aeration, rolling, overseeding w/ perennial rye three times a year. Courter Field's infield mix is comprised of a combination of Santana Infield Gold and Turface MVP. This is the same soil composition used at Safeco Field.

The field is not only the home for BCC, but for some of the top youth programs in the state, Taylor Baseball, Lux Homes, Washington Bankers Connie Mack, and Lakeside Recovery Center American Legion. The Puget Sound Senior Baseball League is the biggest user of the field each year.

The gymnasium at Bellevue Community College has just undergone a major facelift. The 19,000 square foot facility has a new wood floor installed by Western Hardwood of Seattle. The same company that has done floors for the Key Arena, the Sonics/Storm practice facility and the Final Four.

The BCC gym has three full sized basketball floors and plays host to many youth tournaments throughout the year including the Bellevue Holiday Classic, which first tipped off in 1970. It is also home of the KingCo 3A High School Basketball Championships along with district playoffs as well.
BCC is also a fabulous venue for volleyball. With three regulation courts, we host youth and adult leagues as well as being proud hosts of the 2001and 2005 NWAACC Volleyball Championship Tournament.
