American State Bank Sports Complex opens in Sioux Center, Iowa

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa – A new, $8 million dollar sports complex has opened in Sioux Center, Iowa.

The American State Bank Sports Complex celebrated its official opening on Jan. 20.

As reported by Dakota News Now, the facility is a collaborative project between the city and Dordt University and is expected to draw more than 200,000 visitors per year.

The article states the 250 ft by 470 ft dome-which also includes an indoor turf facility—will host athletic competitions and training, wellness activities, and events.

“I think people will be awed and surprised about how enjoyable the headhouse space is–it’s really a nice space with big windows–and when they go in the dome and see how big it is, they’ll be impressed,” ASB Sports Complex director Carrie Krohn told Dakota News Now. “We’re looking forward to people experiencing this place.”

The complex will offer turf time, batting cage use, walking and jogging memberships, league play for different ages, and local and regional teams, including those belonging to Dordt University.

University president Erik Hoekstra says the sports complex is not only a great development for the city but also the school, which has seen 33 percent growth in the last decade.

As reported, Hoekstra says there are no concrete plans for further expansion but suggested eventually the complex could potentially offer courts for volleyball, basketball, tennis, or even pickleball.
