Harrisburg Sports Complex Nearly Complete

April 16, 2014, 7:15 AM by Stephanie Gregory

Harrisburg Sports Complex Nearly Complete
HARRISBURG, SD -

Perfect Practice Sports Academy is much bigger on the inside than what it looks like from the front doors. Soon, athletes of all ages and levels will have the chance to hone their skills 365 days a year in the new indoor building.

Despite a lot of construction left to do before the open house in a week and a half, plenty has been done up to this point.

"This past winter was a nightmare to try to build a building that's 70,000 square feet," Perfect Practice Sports Academy owner and president Gary Sperber said.  "It's been a huge relief to get to the point we are not considering what we went through."

Sperber says opening a sports complex has been his dream for 30 years.  With indoor turf and state-of-the-art batting cages, Sperber hopes this new complex gives kids something they've never had before.

"We're desperately trying to give our kids something that they aren't going to get elsewhere," Sperber said.

As Sperber walks through the hallways at Perfect Practice, he says he can't wait until the players take the field, or the court, for the very first time.

"I'm anxious to see that feed back and see that expression and start hearing the tings and balls hitting the gloves and the kids running around and doing what they've been looking forward to do," Sperber said.

Crews broke ground in October 2013. When it’s completed, the price tag on the facility is $5 million. There will be an open house for some club teams on Saturday, April 26. It will be open to the public shortly after that.
