United States of America: Grande Sports Centre [EQT]

The 400 acre Grande Sports Centre is designed to become the next academic-athletic nexus of the United States of America with the capacity to host 3,000 students. The master-planned development integrates eight celebrity branded pro-athletic academies,  two private schools with dormitories, high-end villas and cottages, a 10,000 seat mixed-use sports and entertainment arena, a 150-key hotel, a conference center, and retail.

The Grande Sports Centre provides a combined academic, athletic, and business campus that will not only attract students and their family members, but also conference attendees, tourists, homeowners, and the local community. The Centre combines premiere sports education, through leading sports celebrities, with state-of-the-art private student and adult education embedded in a thriving business and residential community:

The Academic Campus – Learning for a future

The Academic Campus comprises two private, college preparatory schools—grades 7–12. The schools are open internationally to applicants, and aim to combine athletic and academic education for students through high school. The facilities combine top-of-the-line education with an international and corporate focus, teaching high-prestige sports and skills that are practiced in business functions throughout the world. The private, tuition-based education students receive will include leadership development as well as useful and valued technology skills. Five Vocational-Technical Institutes provide students the means to begin their pursuit of a specialized career. The 5 options for students include the Foreign Language, Culinary, Hospitality, Entrepreneurial, and Technology Institutes. Education is provided for by the Grande Excelsior School, a partnership between the Grande Organization and the established Excelsior International School. 

The Athletic Campus – From the pros, for future pros

The Grande Sports Centre incorporates a sizable Athletic Campus. Students enrolled at the Grande Sports Centre join a specialized sports academy, or take part in multiple academies. These academies are brought to students by sports celebrity patrons—a sports experience from the pros, for future pros. Tennis, Golf, Equestrian, Sailing, Swimming, Soccer, Basketball and Hockey curricula are covered. Each is provided its own dedicated academy, with the requisite facilities to accommodate serious practice and competition. The Grande Tennis Academy features 16 full courts and 16 half courts (indoor and outdoor). The Grande Golf Academy features a 9-hole course with a driving range and putting green. The Grande Equestrian Academy features a 1,000 seat pavilion, jumping arena, stables, and riding trails. The Grande Sailing Academy has a marina and docks with 100 wet slips. The Grande Swimming Academy features two pools; one is a dedicated diving pool. The Grande Soccer Academy has 7 soccer fields. The Grande Basketball Academy has 6 basketball courts. The Grande Hockey Academy’s ice hockey rink is able to accommodate 500 seats. In addition to the sports facilities themselves, the Academies also conduct learning in dedicated classrooms. This provides an academic approach to the sports covered. Not only do students get the school year to practice their sport under celebrity-branded instruction, they also study the sport intellectually, learning tactics, strategy, health practices, and the mechanics of their sport.

Business & Residential – All about Community:

Non-student patrons of the Grande Sports Centre have a plethora of opportunities. The campus provides master-planned and fully amenatized residential developments: 149 golf cottages and 145 conference villas. The golf cottages share immediate proximity with the 9-hole golf course, as well as the celebrity branding, provided to the Grande Golf Academy. These high-end residences afford supreme luxury in a classic setting. First and second hand buyers and guests gain access to the 9-hole course, as well as many of the retail, entertainment, and business function of the campus. The conference villas are in close proximity to the Conference Center. The centerpiece of the business functions at the Grande Sports Centre, the Conference Centre is able to accommodate industry conventions, company meetings, and other business conferences. Additionally, it also provides business offices and services to guests and community members. A 150-key hotel on campus enables Conference Center guests and sports facility guests to stay for as long as they like in plush accommodation.

Entertainment & Retail:

The campus will also incorporate a mixed-use sports and entertainment arena that will feature concerts from famous musical artists and other events. Forty-five retail shops, found in the towncenter and elsewhere on the campus, allow residents and guests to quickly and conveniently access shopping sites to fit a number of retail and day-to-day needs. A variety of cafes and restaurants afford varied dining opportunities, and the wellness center provides additional exercise options. Natural settings and facilities built to enhance and support the natural aesthetics for the campus and local community’s enjoyment include the preserve and trails.
