Like the rest of the USA, Santee is looking forward to enjoying a glorious summer.
And why not?
The region is already considered a beautiful and relaxing environment away from the hustle of San Diego. Santee's close proximity to nature also makes it a prime location for many outdoor recreational activities. Its rivers are well known for good fishing, trails for running and biking, plus camping at the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve.
In 2010, the City of Santee and Sportsplex USA opened one of the best sports facilitates on the West Coast, the Sportsplex USA Santee. Covering 15 acres and situated in the Town Center Community Park, this facility boasts of three fields that are perfect for baseball or softball. With the well-lit and well-kept artificial outfields, they have proven to be a preferred venue for many youth and adult tournaments in the region.
It also provides a location to host sports camps, high school and college games and corporate events. It's become so popular that there's always a game to watch every weekend.
Even More Fun
The complex also contains two enclosed soccer pitches, and referees available to officiate. Whether it's a 5-a-side game for charity, a kickabout with friends or an intense Zorb soccer match, the lush pitches are available for everyone.
They also offer a league system, so you can choose your skill level and not worry about getting hurt while having fun. If you just want to watch the game, they also play host to local and regional soccer leagues.
Don't like soccer or softball? The complex also offers the chance to try:
- NFL Flag Football.
- Air Aerobics on indoor trampolines.
- Horseshoe tournaments.
A Comfortable Environment
With designated parking and and proper stadium seating (not those uncomfortable metal bleacher benches), this facility aims to make your visit as comfortable as possible. There's an indoor area with AC and TVs so you can catch up on other games, in between tournament games.
With a stocked sports pub, you definitely won't go hungry here. The complex also offers a system where the cost of entrance, $2.50, is redeemable as a token at the bar. Be sure to relax and sample the wide selection of wine and beers on tap.
Multiple Events, all Year Round
The complex has proven so popular that it has hosted over 1.5 million people since it opened exactly four years and a week ago. Whether it's coming to watch the Xtreme Diamond Sportsworld Baseball World Series, have a family friendly July 4th celebration or cheer on your favorite little league, this complex offers a fun day out for everyone.
