The Central Oregon Sportsplex Alliance is a community-driven organization that aims to bring high-quality sports facilities to the region. Comprised of community members, businesses, sports teams, and partners, the Alliance is dedicated to developing a multi-sport facility with multiple turf fields for soccer, lacrosse, rugby, baseball, and softball, as well as indoor multi-use turf fields, ice sports development areas, and potentially commercial sports, retail, hotel, and RV park amenities.

One of the Alliance’s main goals is to establish and administer scholarship funds to ensure that all youth in Central Oregon have access to top-notch facilities, leagues, and training opportunities. This commitment is rooted in the belief that every child should have the opportunity to participate in sports without barriers.

During a meeting with the Bend Park and Rec Board, Derek Berry, president of the CO Sportsplex Alliance presented their plan. He emphasized that this project is a significant endeavor that requires substantial funding but with sufficient support can be successfully realized.

Julie Brown expressed the organization’s dedication to providing recreational spaces within the community. She highlighted the potential for partnerships to enhance recreational opportunities and mentioned the board’s interest in exploring the Sportsplex Alliance’s concept further.

The preferred location for the facility identified by Sportsplex Alliance is Redmond at Fairgrounds and Expo Center. Although feasibility studies are yet to be completed fundraising efforts will commence once they are finished bringing this vision into fruition.
