pool broke down long ago, over 50 members left then. mostly seniors.no one wants to look for a grant or some such to repair it.they won't even ask United Way.The Mgr. is a young preppy squirt who is an absentee. much more important to stay at home while getting paid you know. Mexicans sneak in the workout room after hours and party,drink,and use equipment while no one cares. in fact,the soccor field out back is taken over on wknd.'s as is the picnic and playground area by illegals.

All thats left there is the outdoor activities for kids such as softball,and the use of the gym for BB,gymnastics, and then the Karate area.kids and mexicans have broken into all the areas and destroyed things. In fact if you drive thru back parking lot on most wknd.'s,the mexicans look at you like THEY own the place,and you need to leave.Mgnmnt. doesn't care.Republitard is right,its pretty run down. sad.

Undoubtedly the people who are so concerned about what goes on at a non profit place doesn't even have a membership or children who attends the Sportsplex. You should know that a non profit PRIVATE establishment very seldom are approved for grants. The people who work there are dedicated people who love the kids and they adore them!
So get a life and continue on with your self at your new job at the place on Harper road with all those crooks. Or better still , find a new job. Why don't you work until 9 or ten at night when there is ballgames. I see them out there when my kids play ball.

All you people who are saying such horrible negative things about SportsPlex and its manager.
None of you know anything about the statements you are saying, there is no truth in any of it.
This is what I know for a fact, he is ALWAYS there when we are. He is always there either refereeing or keep score sometimes till after 9 at night.
He gets other kids in the community involved with the sports programs.
Instead of trying to tear down one of the few places are kids have to go to, why not try volunteering? If you are so concerned go and lend a helping hand, isnít that what a community is suppose to do?
You are only harming the kids with all these lies and negativity. I for one am grateful that the kids have a place to go. The city park is even more run down and surely not safe at night time.
Obviously whoever has made these hateful and untrue statements has done it for personal reasons, whatever they may be.
If you had any decency in you, you would try to make a difference like the manager does. I doubt anyone else would put in the hours he does with no appreciation except from the kids, and that is why he does it, for the kids.

One more thing, there is a board over this place, anything that needs to be done has to approved through the board, not the manager. So if you are going to comment at least know what you are talking about.
SO quit hating on one of the few places are kids have to go and have fun.

you are correct. in fact,either kids or mexicans ripped off part of the wall by the bathrooms to break into the paragon and karate area. 11 mexicans were caught late one nite drinking in the weight room. one cardholder lets in his buddies.Mark,the weight room trainor has quit and left in disgust. the board members are old fuddy duddy village fathers who could care less,and even most of the convict labor that used to keep the place 1/2 way clean and outside mowed,was taken away.they had to board up entrance ways even to try and keep thieves and vandals out.place is barely hanging on by a thread. and to whomever said there are no grants availabe there is wrong. a low income person may apply thru united way and get a free membership so STFU.look ot back by the playground. either the mexicans or kid vandals have grafitti-ed the tool shed.the illegals have taken over the soccor field on wknds.they go hide back there to keep a low profile rather than the city park. the outside sports activities and indoor soccor,BB,and gymnastics plus karate class keep the place going.the karate class room was broken into and stuff destroyed and thrown around and i heard their brand new door lock was bashed in with some object to try and break it off. too bad someone who cares isn't running the place to save it.

And just how do you know they are three months behind?
Like I would seriously believe anything on this site.
It is nothing but hate, lies and filth.

I am personally thankful for the Sports Plex. My kids love it there and it is run by a fine young man who gives his time to the kids and basically gets nothing but grief in return.

They really were behind on their bills. Couldn't even pay their workers and used bad checks. It's under new management now. Great people (: so things should start looking real good over there soon!

you are correct--they even bounced paychecks--
many members have left,mark the trainor left,karate folks left,paragon left--and now most are at max rehab and fitness on harper rd.--hard to beat $30.00 a month membership,no contracts,all new equipment,and a heated pool.
