When applying for a loan you will need to present to the bank your business plan. This will be their gauge if they will grant you the loan that you are applying for.

    I am looking to start a sports complex in the Charlotte, NC area. We have a league that just merged and includes 2 indoor sports, but the rest of the sports offered are all outdoors in remote areas of the city. My goal is to start a complex where it is a one-stop shop. I'm still cooking up ideas, but it'll be along the lines of including a small bar/restaurant with a fitness area and several of opportunities to play different sports daily. I really need help in understanding how to gather capital for the start-up. Who do you reach out to for investments and such. I read somewhere that one complex went about the structure of being a LLC, C corporation. Right now its just me, myself, and I planning this business. What are you thoughts on doing this as a Sole Proprietor? Thanks for your help, much appreciated!!!

    I am wanting to open an adult and youth complex that houses a food area for the fields and a sports bar on the other side. The building is 77,760 sq ft with 5.884 acres of land. It is fully air-conditioned including 3 dock doors to bring in equipment and supplies would make bar housed on dock doors side. Also has one drive in door that should be field side to bring in turf or dirt if cheaper to do infield. Sports side will have snack bar and take orders from sports bar area. I would like to have at least three full side fields with dimensions of 200 in corners and 220 to center. Want suggestions on planning field set up because front entrance is located toward middle of building. Thinking about bar having stage or area for live music. Asking price for building has gone down from 1,250,000 to 795,000. Looking to pay around 500,000 for building. Can you assist in designing field lay out using 40,000 to 45,000 sq ft. Location is 5035 NE Hubbell Road Des Moines, IA 50317

City complex has fall high school games but only 5 weeks and also spring ball before regular season.
  • Richard Warren said on October 24, 2012
    I am located in Tacoma, Washington where it rains a lot. But what I want info on is a sport complex that would do a couple of things. I am in a adult football league. We are a non-profit team in a nonprofit league. But I always dream of owning my own Business. My idea is to build a complex that is geared toward football. To be able to have a place for the youth to be able to train and lift weights and have camps for the youth in our area in the summer time and off season. At the same time be able to rent out to the youth leagues that are around here. But for me to own my own adult team it cost nearly $17,000 to run a team for one season. Most of that goes to renting the high school fields, That cost me over $1,200 for one game(10 games plus playoffs). I said to my partner we need to look into getting our own field. Can you give me some ideas to get this going? Because I can use that money to pay for my own field?
  • Garret Conner said on October 25, 2012
    Garret Conner, Roseburg, Oregon. The city of Roseburg has a wide variety of sports for youth and adults. To name a few, youth t-ball on up to leagion. There is a Cal Ripkin jr, sport for the youth. There is the AAA Legion Doc's baseball here. Soft ball YMCA. High school football and lacross. Sports like football, Lacross, soccer can practice in the rain. The main issue is the community has many youth and teenage kids and young adults That need a dry facility. Roseburg Oregon gets an average of 30.7 inches of rain a year. Not only would an indoor facility support the youth,it would be a safe haven for serious athletes to practice year around sports like baseball, softball, football, lacross. The facility would not be limited to just Roseburg residents, it would be a great facility for surrounding high schools and jr. highs also from neighboring towns and cities. I played high school division 1 baseball and football in California and I was able to practice baseball year around. Here, many kids and young adults never see the potential that they really possess, because they constantly have rained out games. They are also limited to the repetitions need to acquire solid skills. Please give me some ideas of how create enough of an issue to create my dream for the city to have a indoor facility with batting cages, pitching stations indoor arena with a turf baseball diamond and a softball turf diamond. Fifty yard football and lacross field with goal posts and goals. Pro shop, nutrition stand, and film media rooms to review game films. I see many diamonds in the rough that just need a place to practice. I understand that there would be substantial capital that would needed to furnish a complex like the one I listed above. A corporation would probably be the best bet. I was also thinking of contacting grant writers and city official to get something started. Help me see the black and white of how a project like this would be feasible. Thank you, Garret Conner

    I would like to open an operate an indoor baseball sports complex in southern Ontario Oakville/Misissauga Ontario area. There are several rep and elite baseball associations in the southern Ontario some of whom do have an indoor training facility but not an indoor sports complex where they can train and play regular games in. Ontario does have a need for an indoor facility where we can take youth baseball to the next level. If there is any investors interested in helping our athletes train and play all year around I look forward to hear from you.

Is this a reasonable business option and where would i start. thank you

  • Anthony said on October 25, 2013
    I'm in Omaha, NE. I am looking to establish a training facility with an indoor track, where track meets will be held. I will also start a youth track club. My main focus as a business will be speed training, which will involve improving an athlete's speed, agility, power, reaction, coordination, etc. I would like the infield to be field-turf so that football, soccer, lacrosse & field hockey may be played(or any recreational type game). I currently work as a physical education teacher(since 1996), coach football and track & field. I also competed on the college level. I have a MS in Sport Management and have worked in several types of sports facilities and managed multiple sporting events & tournaments. I am currently in the research phase and any information that I can get will be helpful. What I do now is that there are no full indoor track facilities in the city of Omaha and the only indoor tracks in the State are apart of the college facilities.
