Planning is underway to build a world-class training complex in north Minneapolis.
The goal of the project is to create more opportunities for young people and promote healthy lifestyles for residents.
The proposed complex will feature a 200-meter track, a training and conditioning space, and a 50-meter, Olympic-size pool.
“Yes, there are athletes being underserved, but not just athletes, the community as a whole,” said Erika Binger, the founder of V3 sports, which currently serves northside schools. “We recognize the necessity to bring a space here for people to be able to train and be healthy.”
