As outdoor fall programs wind down, it’s time to start planning for indoor winter activities. The St. Charles Park District’s Sportsplex offers many options to rent space for pick-up games or leagues; allow little ones to burn energy; or enroll in Thanksgiving Break sports camp.
The 62,500-square-foot facility purchased by the park district in 2018, offers space to rent for individuals, families, teams and more. Make a reservation and choose between a half or full turf field to improve footwork with your soccer league, organize a flag football game with friends, or schedule one-on-one athletic training with a coach. Reservations are available by the hour. Birthday party packages are also available for use of the turf fields and multi-purpose room.
Sportsplex also hosts a structured activity time for families with young children during the week. Located in the Activity Room, Itsy Bitsy Playtime welcomes families every Tuesday and Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m. through Dec. 30. Sportsplex will provide play equipment for your child. With hula-hoops, sports balls, movable blocks and more, there will be ample opportunity for your child to let their imagination take over. Children can play until they tire – just in time for naptime. Tickets are $2 and available online. Advance registration is required.
Other early childhood programs, in partnership with All Star Sports, are held at Sportsplex. For ages 3-6, you can choose between soccer, T-ball, golf and multi-sports. Your little one will learn basic skills in a fun and safe environment from nationally certified All Star Sports coaches. Parent-Tot classes are also part of the line-up of winter programs.
Older elementary-aged children also need a place to run around – especially when school is out and the temperature drops. During Thanksgiving Break Nov. 22-24, Sportsplex will host a variety of sports camps for older children. Choose between Soccer or Jr. Flag Football for ages 5-7; or Flag Football for ages 7-10.
Constructed in 2001, the climate-controlled Sportsplex complex consists of two turf fields with spectator seating, multi-purpose rooms, concession stand, front desk/registration area, sports performance center, athletic training spaces and administrative offices.
While All-Star Sports is the main contractor at Sportsplex, the park district also partners with Kale Training, Campton United Soccer, Chicago Soccer Academy, Tri-Cities Soccer Association, Silverhawks Softball and River City LaCrosse.
Additionally, Sportsplex provides soccer leagues throughout the year for adults.
