Springfield Clinic has announced its commitment to becoming the official Health & Performance Partner of SCHEELS Sports Park at Legacy Pointe. This partnership involves providing financial support for the initial development of the complex and offering significant on-site medical resources accessible to the entire community once the facility becomes operational.
The clinic's involvement goes beyond monetary contributions as they strive to redefine the future of healthcare in the region. Their vision encompasses creating a unique destination for performance and wellness that has never been seen before. This comprehensive center for competition and health aims to provide new opportunities for patients to stay active and thrive while also acting as an economic development platform for Springfield and the surrounding area.
To propel the project forward, Springfield Clinic plans to invest millions over the next two decades. The initial services offered at the complex will include athletic trainers, physical therapy, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and general wellness.
The sports complex will serve as a venue for year-round athletic events, accommodating local athletic teams for both practice and competition. Springfield Public Schools District 186 is enthusiastic about partnering with SCHEELS Sports Park at Legacy Pointe to provide more opportunities for students and the community as a whole. The complex will offer additional competition and practice space for junior high and high school athletic teams, ensuring that student-athletes have the best chance to pursue their favorite activities.
Upon completion, SCHEELS Sports Park at Legacy Pointe, spanning 95 acres, will become the premier multi-use sports complex in the region. The facility will feature a 200,000-square-foot air-supported dome, enabling year-round use of six indoor basketball courts or 12 volleyball courts, as well as an artificial turf field that can be converted from a full soccer field to two youth baseball fields. Additionally, eight synthetic turf multi-purpose fields will be available. The park is projected to attract 250,000 visitors annually to the City of Springfield, bringing in tens of millions of dollars in additional revenue each year.
