Why “The Eddy”?
A term commonly used in rafting and kayaking, an eddy is a circular movement of flowing water on the river that creates a whirlpool that can trap objects, but can also act as a place of refuge on the water. As we work to build the best training environment in the region, and in keeping with the “Rapids” theme, we felt The Eddy was an appropriate analogy for our indoor training facility. The Eddy provides so much to the soccer community that it keeps players coming back time and time again, circulating them through the facility and all it offers players as well as acting as a familiar place for our players to call home in a fun and exciting environment.
Are you looking for additional team training space? Do you want to run a camp in The Eddy? Do you want to bring in your family and some friends for a pick up game? All areas of The Eddy will be available for rent, including the classroom, the speed, agility, quickness area, and the futsal fields. More information will be available online in the next few weeks, but feel free to reach out to us to begin the process at [email protected] or 303.399.5858 ext 109.
