IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY

The Right City, the Right Community, the Right Time, the Right Facility

Sports and social team-building activities are a critical part of development for children and young adults.

The ability to experience a variety of recreational activities, particularly winter sports, is out of reach for many families in Palm Beach County, including 59% of school-age children who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs.

Additional youth programming is particularly needed at the middle and high-school levels.

Our hot, humid and wet climate negatively impacts the ability for our residents to participate in sports and recreation. A large, indoor sports facility will meet the needs of our youth, seniors, and all residents, providing the opportunity for wholesome extra-curricular activities and positive social interaction in a safe and comfortable setting.

I am so excited about this facility because it provides people throughout the community opportunity to have access to sports that they don’t today.

Anybody can access the facility. It is going to be a treasure to the north county once it is completed.
