The Steele Creek Community does not have the traditional recreational opportunities of a population of this size. To meet some of the need and to give area youth a recreational outlet, there are now five high quality, adjustable basketball goals on the HopePlex’s paved parking lot.
As soon as the hoops were up, neighborhood kids found them, and they are playing at all hours under the lights.
There is potential to establish sports leagues, programs for parents of youth with special needs, and events at which area professional athletes can offer an inspirational example to youth.
Current partnerships include Urban Eagles soccer team, Sports Friends for coach training and league building and Samaritan’s Feet for shoe distribution.
There will be a picnic shelter at the HopePlex adjacent to a large lot on which a soccer field can be built.
Land is available for a recreation center when funds are secured.
