Re: Finding a Gym for Youth Basketball Training
Doing it for profit will present alot of obstacles as far as finding a "free" place.
But anyway, back quite a few years ago a guy I worked with coached a youth team. The league they played in was at the local YMCA. His problem was that he wanted to have practices and couldnt find any gym space availabe. The Y had non-stop stuff going on. And since it was the heart of the b-ball season, the local schools could not help him out. Other coaches had the same problem. They ended up approaching a local wealthy businessman with their problem. They got him to build a gym. It was basically a pole barn with a full court gym inside it. But it was complete with a few bleachers, score boards, and two restrooms that doubled as locker rooms. To off-set the cost, and to make profit, the businessman started running men's leagues, women's leagues, senior citizens leagues, etc. But for the kids, there was no charge.
I know what you are doing is a tad different. But maybe you could find someone that is willing to finance and build a private facility.
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
