After years of planning, construction is starting on the Bladium’s $3 million expansion project to add a third indoor field and a dedicated CrossFit area. General Manager April Albertson says the 30,000 square foot addition will bring the total space to 83,000sf.
Albertson said their CrossFit program is currently filling their basketball court. The addition will double or triple their space for CrossFit and make the basketball court available again. The new Crossfit space on the east side will open to the north, where a new exterior athletic surface will accommodate outdoor CrossFit classes, as well as space for children’s birthday parties.
The addition of a third indoor field will expand Bladium’s field space by fifty percent. “We have adult leagues going on year round from 6pm til midnight, almost every night,” says Albertson, adding that the third field will enable them to offer more youth leagues and expand the Lil’ Kickers and Soccer Academy programs. Most of those classes are now full.
Bladium expects to continue their programming during construction, with the work being done from the outside in. Albertson says they hope to open the new facilities about the first of the year.
