A new, 180,000 square-foot amateur/youth sports facility has been proposed by Lauth Group, Inc. and Synergy Sports Global in Warrick County, Indiana.

The proposed facility includes a variety of indoor court space, turf fields, and a banked indoor track.

The location under discussion is near I-69, the Lloyd Expressway, and the Warrick Wellness Trail, which officials anticipate will provide great access both locally and regionally.

"It connects to the transportation system so people can get there, it's also surrounded by healthcare, hotels, restaurants," explained Steve Roelle, Executive Director of Success Warrick County, which is the county's Economic Development Department.

Officials believe the Youth Sports Complex would be a great addition to Warrick County and the Tri-State area. They say the facility will help meet local demand while also having a large regional economic impact.

"We've talked to the youth sports teams, talked to the local school systems, and the local universities. and each of them find a need and niche, that they don't have the ability to meet," Roelle said.

The facility would welcome school activities and community events that could utilize the open space.

For now, the proposal remains in its early stages, but officials hope to iron out the details in the coming months.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
