In this Local Profile we focus on the KEVA Sports Center, an indoor/outdoor recreation center with absolutely spectacular facilities. Check out our interview with KEVA Sports Center!
Q: Tell us about the KEVA Sports Center.
Established in 1999, KEVA Sports Center is Dane County’s premier indoor/outdoor recreation center for all ages and all skill levels. “KEVA” is a Native American term for “community or social gathering place.”
We have 70,000 square feet of indoor space and 30,000 feet of outdoor space that includes turf fields; basketball courts; sand volleyball courts; inside and outside food and beverage area; and playgrounds.
KEVA offers leagues, classes, birthdays, open play, youth camps, company and family parties, meetings, and so much more for a group of 10 to 1,000!
Q: How do your programs work?
Our programs begin at 18 months and expand throughout adulthood for all skill levels (recreation-competitive). We run adult and youth sports leagues, classes, birthdays, open play, youth camps, company and family parties, tournaments, meetings, and events.
Our variety of sports leagues allow players and teams to find a comfortable fit for their age, ability and schedule. The goal is to have a league available for everyone, whether they’re a beginner or the next Olympic athlete! Our online DASH program allows teams to check their schedule, standings and register for programs from their computer or mobile device.
Q: Can you sign up to be on a team even if you don’t have a team of your own?
KEVA’s Free Agent program allows players to register independently for a league, rather than recruiting a team’s worth of players to sign up. KEVA does the rest, by filling the team with other interested players. It’s a great way to stay active and meet new players in the area. We even provide a jersey for you!
Q: What do your customers love most about KEVA Sports Center?
Our top notch facility and customer service is what has allowed us to excel over the last decade. We are also able to offer something for everyone of all ages and skill levels. Our membership program has been a great success thanks to our loyal members as we service over 350,000 people a year. KEVA members receive free open play at our facility year round!
Q: Why is Dane County such a great fit for KEVA Sports Center?
Madison is a melting pot of great communities, people, businesses, education, where the opportunities are endless. Sports, recreation, and health and wellness trends in our area over the last decade have allowed our business to be successful.
Our loyal customers want to stay active year round, even during the harsh winters, which allows us to stay busy 12 months out of the year.
