Currently under construction, the RC Sports Center will boast a state-of-the-art multisport gym with 6 combination basketball/volleyball courts (3 indoor courts with cross-court capabilities, and 3 covered, outdoor courts), ample indoor and outdoor seating, a café offering food and beverage concessions, and a multi-purpose meeting room.
The RC Sports Center will replace the existing RC Family Sports Center facility located on San Bernardino Road in Rancho Cucamonga, as the lease for that retrofitted retail site is set to expire. The new facility will be located at what was previously known as the "special events area" of the Epicenter Sports Complex, across the street from LoanMart Field at the Epicenter Stadium, which is home to the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Minor League Baseball team. The construction of this new city-owned gymnasium will fulfill a long held vision for the community, will eliminate the current rent payment as well as reduce long term operating costs.
Signature city sports programs including youth and adult basketball, and youth volleyball, will be held out of the new RC Sports Center once completed. In the meantime, these programs will continue to run out of the current RC Family Sports Center.
The RC Sports Center facility will offer many amenities for the community:
A backup generator will allow the facility to serve as an emergency evacuation center.
The RC Sports Center's grand opening is scheduled for July 21st and will begin at 10 a.m. with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with activities to follow from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
On April 25th, 2017, officials gathered to conduct the official groundbreaking of the RC Sports Center, which is anticipated to be completed in Summer 2018.
