The Challenge

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 Elite Sports Academy by designing new bathrooms, a staff office and a new party room.

Our Approach

Simplicity in design and flexibility in layout allows for the indoor athletic space to serve a multitude of purposes. An entrance area with building and athletic support does not interfere with the vast open turf fields.

Design Solution

Alloy5 created a welcoming and modern facility for families and athletes to utilize for various purposes. A party room allows guests to host birthdays and events. Practice batting cages give athletes the opportunity to train indoors year-round. The space is open with modular flexibility from easy-to-move curtain partitions.
