Flyzone Alaska is the dream of Sheldon and Rebecca Thompson. Sheldon and Rebecca are both lifelong Alaskans, parents of nine children, and business owners in Fairbanks. Many years ago they saw that there was a need in Interior Alaska for a place where youth sports, health and fitness classes, and many other athletic activities could go when there is snow and cold temperatures. In early 2016, Flyzone Alaska was created with the vision of making an indoor athletic facility a reality.
The Fairbanks Community Indoor Park will be the hub for athletics for Interior Alaska providing space for youth basketball, soccer, and volleyball. The space will be ideal for tournaments, league play, camps, clinics, open play and any other programs devoted to youth health and fitness.
The 45,000 square foot, heated facility will feature two (2) state-of-the art floating hard wood floors that will be able to be configured to play basketball, indoor soccer, and volleyball. There will also be one (1) indoor green court for playing indoor soccer. Above the courts is a large loft area that will be sectioned to host 3-4 large classroom spaces for health and fitness classes. There will be a large lobby space that will house comfortable seating, concession stand and viewing areas for both parents and spectators.
Almost overnight we have seen the vision shared by hundreds of fellow Fairbanksians. Yoga, Kickboxing, Martial Arts, Core and other fitness teachers jumped on board and committed to using the facility. Interior Youth Basketball and Interior Youth Soccer also pledged to use the facility.
Daily we receive a message from someone wanting to sign up to use what we have coined as the “Fairbanks Community Indoor Park.” From the beginning, Sheldon and Rebecca knew there was a need but they never knew how large the need truly was. Now we need your help.
Please sign this petition to show potential donors how large the need for a indoor athletic facility is.
