  • JOIN US TO BUILD UNITY THROUGH SPORTS

    Athletics serve as a universal language, breaking down barriers, and promoting unity among diverse communities across Northeast Wisconsin. Athletics provide a common ground where individuals of all backgrounds come together. By sharing a space and a passion for sports, it creates a connection that extends beyond words. With three indoor turf fields, pickleball courts, and a multipurpose room, the Community Recreation Center provides opportunities for families, youth, and adults to participate in sports, events, and recreational activities 365 days a year. This builds camaraderie across demographics, encourages healthy lifestyles, and enhances the overall quality of life for residents.

  • TOGETHER WE’LL PROMOTE HEALTH AND WELLBEING

    In addition to athletics, this facility provides opportunities for socialization creating less isolation among our youth, adults, and care takers in our community. The facility engages with at-risk groups, offering opportunities to channel their energy positively and learn valuable life skills such as discipline and sportsmanship. The Sports Emporium also offers Todder Play, a time for new parents to connect and create community with others in the same stage of life. The new Community Recreation Center will allow more room, availability, and programming to help support those who need a safe, fun and comfortable space to come.

The sport of soccer and the coaches at Sports Emporium have taught my children teamwork, resilience, commitment, sportsmanship, discipline, and respect for other athletes and coaches.
