Construction is Complete on Anaheim Family YMCA Soccer/Rec Center

The initial phase of a major outdoor recreation project for the Anaheim Family YMCA is now complete at 1422 West Broadway. During phase one, PREMIER Design + Build Group was tasked with creating a soccer and recreation center for the YMCA. 

The new YMCA Community Complex includes six 60- by 90-foot soccer arenas with dividing walls and three multi-purpose fields. The six artificial turf fields are designed for five-on-five soccer and futsal for youth and adults. The largest multi-purpose field is designed to host martial arts, Zumba, preschool sports and other family activities. The two smaller multi-purpose fields will be used for activities including yoga and tai chi, along with practice facilities. 

The complex spans 163,780 square feet and includes an accessible restroom building. An adjacent parking lot accommodates approximately 100 vehicles.

“As we mark our 110-year anniversary, the Anaheim Family YMCA begins a new chapter,” said Rick Martens, Anaheim Family YMCA’s president/CEO. “It was nothing short of extraordinary that PREMIER’s team completed phase one of our project given the challenges of this past year.”

PREMIER’s Jeramy Mahfet served as project manager, working with project superintendent Steve Miller. PREMIER’s project partners included Wilson Mikami Corporation for civil engineering and Welsh Structures Inc. for structural engineering. IMA served as landscape architect.

The Anaheim YMCA serves residents in the communities of Anaheim, Cypress, Stanton and La Palma. The Community Center project was funded in part by a grant from the California Parks and Recreation Department and several large leadership grants.
