Built in 1965, Alfred J. Loos Fieldhouse (seating: 7,500) is one of the largest high school gyms in the U.S.[1] It is currently the largest high school gym outside of Indiana, but will lose that distinction in fall 2013 when Window Rock High School in Fort Defiance, Arizona opens a new 8,000-seat facility.[2] Located at 3815 Spring Valley Road in Addison, Texas, Loos Fieldhouse is part of the Loos Sports Complex, which includes a football stadium and natatorium, all operated by the Dallas Independent School District.

The complex is named for A. J. Loos, who served as head football coach at Forest Avenue High School (now James Madison High School, Dallas, Texas) from 1921-1934.

It is also leased for non curricular use, including the annual Texas Open Taekwondo championships.
