Youth Sports in Frisco
It’s time for the kids.
The Brent Germany Team is often asked by people looking to buy a home in Frisco, TX or investigating Frisco real estate options about sports and recreational opportunities in and around town, not for mom and dad but for the kids.
And if there is one thing Frisco loves — heck, the whole North Texas area — it’s sports . . . the professional teams, leagues and fitness for mom and dad, and youth sports for the kiddos.
As you’d imagine, there’s pretty much every youth sport played in Frisco — from the majors like football, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, and hockey to the minors like swimming, wrestling, volleyball and martial arts.
In this post we help parents looking to buy a new house in Frisco or are contemplating real estate in Frisco with a basic understanding of the youth sports scene in town.
The local schools, of course, offer a full range of boys and girls sports. The focus of this post, however, is on what else is out there for the kids to join. Frisco, you see, is home to some of the best youth sports facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which attracts not only residents but families throughout the Metroplex.
Here’s one other thing to know about youth sports in North Texas:
Athletics are so incredibly competitive for kids in the area that if Bobby or Susie have aspirations to move from the youth ranks into high school athletics and beyond, they pretty much have to play year around in summer leagues, on select teams, and (often) with additional coaching and instruction.
There is plenty of these opportunities in Frisco:
FieldHouseUSA is also known as the Frisco Indoor Sports Center (Frisco website) and is located just off the Dallas North Tollway, making it super convenient for families to access from Frisco and across North Texas. (Two other facilities are located in Grapevine to the west and Mansfield to the south.)
What’s different about FieldHouseUSA — and attractive to people looking to buy a home in Frisco or checking out Frisco’s real estate options — is that it’s a community based facility that specializes in leagues, events, and tournaments.
Year-round league play is available in basketball, soccer, volleyball, flag football, and futsal (an indoor version of soccer with five players a side). Individual participation and instruction is available in:
- Performance training
- All-sports camps
- Boot camps
- Club volleyball
- Skills training
- Martial arts
Recreational and Olympic-style Taekwondo also is offered in the FieldHouseUSA facility with a 10:1 ratio of students to teachers, guaranteeing the kiddos of more personalized instruction,
