We are nothing without our health, PERIOD! Fitness opportunities and sports of all kinds will thrive within the huge sports complexes of ZIPPER JUNCTION™. As a major pillar of the philosophy, this gear is included to show the importance of how our individual health and well being affects everything else we do.
This portion of ZIPPER JUNCTION™ began as a single element on a plan for a Career and Technical Center. The designers of that original plan designed an area for some physical fitness; a moderately sized general purpose gymnasium as found in most schools. It very quickly became clear as ZIPPER JUNCTION developed that this is a much larger area of opportunity to be supported and expanded upon for two major reasons.
First, physical fitness plays a key role in all else we do. How can we do anything if we are not fit?
Second, these facilities will be used for the community at large as well as venues for hosting many events from small to very large, on a regional/national level.
The complex has grown in scale to include many areas that normally do not find their way into a covered structure. For instance, the main arena within ZIPPER JUNCTION™ will house a full sized football field/soccer field and have seating for several thousand people when set up as a field. It can also be used for three junior soccer fields, several smaller baseball and softball fields, field hockey, or one of many other turf based sports. Then there are the six indoor National Basketball Association sized hardwood basketball courts, seven official sized tennis courts, three squash/handball courts, the 50 meter Olympic Sized 10 lane pool, the 25 meter Olympic Sized 10 lane pool, the Olympic sized diving pool, a soaking pool and huge recreational pool, the two National Hockey League sized Ice Rinks, the National Hockey League sized hardwood skating rink, a 15,000 Square Foot gymnasium devoted and outfitted ONLY for gymnastics, the 8 lane 400 meter indoor track and field facility, as well as a world class fitness center with every conceivable piece of exercise and physical therapy machine imaginable. There are also the many exercise classrooms, studios, dance facilities, and the indoor ¼ mile 3 lane jogging track. As for baseball and softball, there are the four Major League Baseball regulation sized fields (which can be converted to several other sizes and into softball fields) with support facilities, all under roof!
We have not even gotten outside yet….. There you will find several different fields as well as a second full sized football/soccer field encircled by a second 400 meter 8 lane track with seating for thousand more of your closest friends. There are many more pieces to this complex, but you get the idea, this portion of ZIPPER JUNCTION™ is a major driver of support, interaction, and cross pollination.
We have not even gotten outside yet….. There you will find several different fields as well as a second full sized football/soccer field encircled by a second 400 meter 8 lane track with seating for 6,000 more of your closest friends. There are many more pieces to this complex, but I think you get the idea.
