RIM sports complex opens in Hampton
The complex features five high school sized basketball/volleyball courts and the Fast Break Café to offer healthy food for athletes.
Clubs planning to use the new complex include Great Bay Volleyball, Seacoast Spartans AAU basketball club, and the Visionary Basketball Camp and Zero Gravity Basketball, both based in Massachusetts.
The complex will give the Spartans a permanent home, meaning the club will no longer have to rent out court time at different locations on the Seacoast.
The Spartans – a club targeting youth from grade 2 to 12 — has about 200 members from the Seacoast area and another 200 from the Manchester area who use the Sports Zone Indoor Sports complex in Derry.
Viviano said the facility will also offer an after-school program with a certified teacher to help children with their homework before working on their “skills and drills.”
“There really isn’t a lot of education going on about it,” he said.
Ben Fitzgerald of Hampton, whose son, Tyler, 10, plays sports, including basketball and soccer, said he hopes some of the town’s teams make use of the Rim.
