Phase 2 is an 120,000 sq ft fieldhouse/training complex featuring:
The fieldhouse provides seamless transition between training, coaching, testing and therapy, which is a first in Canada. The sport expertise, fitness, training and coaching housed in Phase I will be put to use in the fieldhouse to provide programming for local schools, community groups, amateur sport teams and elite athletes.
The Sport for Life Centre is dedicating a third of its fieldhouse time to community programming and will consult with the community to develop relevant programs and programming, which will focus on sport participation and leadership development.
While we have many facilities in the province, this will be the first wellness clinic fully integrated with a training centre. The Centre provides the bridge between health care and health.
When both phases are up and running, the Sport of Life Centre will be used by 400,000 people every year on-site and the online resources by thousands more. That’s an incredible impact!
