Exciting news for Wesley Chapel! The highly anticipated Wiregrass Sports Complex has been approved and will celebrate groundbreaking shortly. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for June 7 2018.
The facility will be south of Estancia at Wiregrass, north of State Road 56 (just north of the Audi Dealership).
The new Wiregrass Sports Complex is proposed to feature the following:
- Phase One
- Approximately 98,000 SF Indoor sports facility –
- 8 basketball courts
- Dedicated cheerleading and gymnastics area
- Fitness center
- Team meeting and coaches area
- Hotel – 100+ room Marriott branded hotel (Already being constructed)
- Double sports field / event lawn
- Running, biking trails
The state-of-the-art 98,000+ squarefoot sports center features eight bio-cushioned hardwood regulation courts that can be utilized for basketball, volleyball, mixed martial arts, gymnastics, wrestling, soccer, futsal, cheerleading, dance and much more. The facility and amenities create a premier destination for local, regional and national competitions. Catering to players, coaches, referees, families, and fans looking for quality venues, the sports facility is the anchor draw for a community to capitalize on the growing amateur sports tourism market.
For the local athletes, both young and old, the addition will provide more access to traditional court sports as well as exposure to the fitness center. The fitness center will be used for strength, speed, agility and flexibility training for amateur athletes in all sports. Studies show that children should be encouraged to develop all-round core strength and coordination up until approximately age 12 before they begin to focus on mastery in one single sport. The purpose of combining the court sport facilities alongside the fitness center is to develop each child holistically and lower their risk of injury.
