The Yakima Valley Sports Commission is a division of Yakima Valley Tourism. Our primary mission is economic development of the Yakima Valley through sports. The goal of our staff is to provide exceptional customer service to sports organizers who stage their events in the Yakima Valley.
Sozo Sports of Central Washington is moving along in their development of the Yakima Sports Complex, a championship level indoor and outdoor sports facility with multi-use grass and all-weather turf playing fields.
The City of Yakima is also beginning the process of road improvements for 38th and 36th Avenues. The complex now has thirteen, full-size, outdoor fields in operation, nine grass and four turf. They will be available for soccer, lacrosse, Grid Kid football and more. The construction of a 13,500 square foot fieldhouse is nearing completion. Once opened in the fall of 2017, the building will accommodate three volleyball courts, futsol and lacrosse. For convenience and a better customer experience, five self-contained restroom/concession facilities are being located around the complex, in addition to the central restroom building.
Still to come is four more outdoor fields, lights for the sports turf fields, a First Tee golf site, another 20,000 square foot fieldhouse, little league baseball fields and a 65,000 square foot indoor facility.
Sozo is committed to promoting kids involvement in youth sports regardless of race, religion, socio-economic background or ability level. The Yakima Sports Complex will be a safe place for youth that encourages physical activity, develops confidence, teamwork and discipline and emphasizes the value of hard work.
The Yakima Sports Complex is located at 2200 South 36th Avenue, Yakima, for directions and more information, go to https://sozosports.net.
