Elite Sports Academy

Emmaus, PA

Seemingly overnight, youth sports evolved from backyard pickup games and neighborhood stickball to a ballooning $15 billion industry. Companies like Elite Sports Academy have capitalized on this market, providing indoor sports training for soccer, football, baseball and softball. Small group instruction, summer camps, birthday parties and team training nights round out ESA’s roster of activities.

Having outgrown its existing space, ESA was relocating to a new facility in a former bowling alley. The building had been completely stripped of interior finishes, and, while the square footage was appealing, the space felt too vacant for youth sports.

Alloy5 was hired to convert the existing facility for ESA by designing new bathrooms, a staff office and a new party room. The space is open with modular flexibility from easy-to-move curtain partitions. A full interior restoration included the addition of batting cages and training fields, leaving ESA with a modern facility in which the business has thrived.
