ORIGINAL STORY: A state-of-the-art indoor volleyball and basketball complex coming to Chesterfield

The Chesterfield Athletic Association along with some of the largest volleyball and basketball clubs in the St. Louis area and the developer of the local sports complex, Mia Rose Holdings, are uniting to bring a modern indoor volleyball and basketball complex to St. Louis. The 97,000-square-foot, multi-court field home has received zoning approval in Chesterfield Valley on Etherton Road near St. Louis Premium Outlets.

As the largest youth volleyball and basketball facility in St. Louis, it will attract an estimated 900,000 visitors each year to its clinics, camps, leagues, and tournaments. More than 1,000 athletes will train, train and play games there every week. Construction will begin in fall 2021 and target opening in September 2022.

The Chesterfield Athletic Association (CSA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, will own and operate the facility, which will meet a significant need for court space in St. Louis.

“This is so much more than just a gym, it’s a ‘life’ center and a place these young athletes can call home,” said Stuart Duncan, director of the Chesterfield Athletic Association. “Besides giving basketball and volleyball players a place to practice their sports, our mission is to provide a place for them to gain confidence, confidence, self-esteem, and good health.”

The principal tenants and partners are:

  • High Performance – STLIt is the largest volleyball club in the region with more than 1,000 athletes, 90 teams and 10,000 participants annually in the tournament;
  • Stratman Sportsthe largest club volleyball tournament and organizer of the junior league in the region hosting over 600 teams throughout each season;

  • CNR Basketball, the largest basketball league organizer in the region, which schedules more than 12,000 games annually and runs games and leagues during the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons. Complete 85% of CNR teams within 25 minutes of the new compound.

“Missouri Phenom Basketball places great emphasis on youth development on and off the field,” said Brittany Carter, Missouri Phenom Basketball regional coordinator. “We pride ourselves on building character and leadership at a grassroots level.

The Field Field will offer a full range of youth sports services and amenities to develop student athletes to their fullest potential. CSA plans to work with local organizations to offer community health and wellness programs and will partner with physical therapists and osteopaths to help condition and train athletes.

“We have a rich sporting history in St. Louis with great facilities for professional athletes, but we are one of the worst big cities for in-house youth facilities,” said Scott Mayber, club director at High Performance – STL Volleyball Club. “This is the only facility in the St. Louis area to be built from the ground up, and is intended and purposefully designed for young athletes in these sports. Every other facility was something else, never intended to be for volleyball or basketball. This would be strong in How it affects so many people outside of our sports clubs.”

While 80% of available court time will be used by existing core partners, more than 10,000 hours of court time is available annually. CSA is in talks with potential major university partners and other organizations to offer day programs. Chesterfield Athletic Association is looking for partners and donors dedicated to developing and supporting young athletes in St. Louis in exchange for facility designation opportunities and other recognition. In addition to hosting volleyball and basketball clinics, camps, tournaments, and tournaments, the facility can be used for volleyball, futsal, wrestling, dancing, cheerleading, and other sports where space is available.

This sports complex will be the center of entertainment, community life and economic activity. “St. Louis will finally have the global youth sports facility it deserves,” said Tom Kaymen, founding director of Mia Rose Holdings (MRH). “I am honored to be part of this incredible alliance of sports organizations and to help bring this incredibly important vision to reality in Chesterfield and St. Louis.” In addition to multifamily and mixed-use developments, MRH has a strong position in the development and consultancy of sports facilities, including the Maryville University Hockey Center in Chesterfield Valley. This expertise stemmed from Kaiman’s professional hockey career.

Most indoor basketball and volleyball facilities in St. Louis are operated by private and public schools and municipal governments. These facilities have significant limitations and liability concerns for hosting outside players and organizations, which have only increased during the coronavirus pandemic. None of the larger indoor court facilities were designed for volleyball and basketball, and many are 30-40 years old with poor infrastructure, poor ventilation systems, inadequate lighting, substandard floors, inadequate seating, and inadequate dimensions For safe and fun play.

Due to the lack of safe and adequate facilities locally, local basketball and volleyball clubs currently have to use multiple locations to meet their needs and tournament organizers are turning to larger venues in other Midwest cities. In fact, Gateway Region Volleyball, the local branch of American volleyball, needed to move many of its big weekend events from local facilities to its new 12-court Cape Girardeau facility two hours away.

“The lack of local facilities and quality creates unnecessary obstacles and missed opportunities for local tournament organizers and businesses, as well as for players and their families who have to travel out of town to participate,” Duncan said. “This new facility will ease this burden on the families of the athletes.”

As a major economic driver, the sports complex will provide jobs for coaches, referees, coaches, concession and maintenance workers, and bring local and out-of-town guests into the region to generate economic activity for local restaurants, hotels and retail establishments. CSA is buying land for potential future expansion.
