The Eau Claire Indoor Sports Center opened its doors in the fall of 2001. At that time, a group of local business men and women led by Drs. Ken De Meuse and Tom Dow wanted to provide youth an alternative to playing computer games, watching television, or searching for something to do. We have clung to our original mission throughout all these years – to provide a safe, healthy, and fun destination for youth and families in the Chippewa Valley and Northwestern Wisconsin. Whether it is the Family Fun Zone for preschoolers, our School’s Out Program for elementary and middle school students, our Friday Family Nights for young families, or Summer Camp for working families, The Sports Center provides a host of alternatives.
In many ways, we have evolved into a Community Center of sorts for all to come and enjoy the sports leagues, birthday parties, dance lessons, open gym, and planned family or neighborhood activities. We also have created four annual social events for families to attend – The RCU New Year’s Eve Celebration and Halloween Party, Xcel Energy Kid’s Expo, and Family Fest.
In addition, we have become the destination of choice for Conventions, Tradeshows, Business Expos, and Community Events. Our 50,000 square foot facility offers ample room for businesses to display their products and services, and our 550 space parking lot is one of the largest in the City of Eau Claire. Moreover, the whole layout of the facility is on one level, providing vendors easy entrance and exit, as well as making it readily accessible for physically handicap guests. For the past many years, we have hosted the Indianhead Food Show, Chippewa Valley Home & Garden Show, Farm Show, Gun Show, RV Show, Eau Claire Humane Association Show, Indianhead Model Train Show, and the Eau Claire Business Expo.
During all this time, we remain locally owned and operated. We encourage you to visit The Sports Center. Our talented, accommodating staff will ensure that your visit is a special one.
