The West Gym or "Goldmine" on the campus of Long Beach State is a little bit of an unappreciated gem. The "Goldmine" was home to 49er Athletics prior to the opening of the Walter Pyramid. As such, there are retractable bleachers for up 2,000 people, access to locker rooms, a crows nest press box and even a box office window. When the bleachers are away, there is enough floor space for 3 full regulation basketball courts or 4 volleyball courts. When used in concert with the neighboring East Gym and the courtyard in between, the kinesiology building becomes a nice tournament site. Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA) is a regular user of the East and West Gyms. The West Gym is frequently used for cheer and dance camps, indoor soccer/ futsal and martial arts programming.
