NORTH SHORE SPORTS ACADEMY OPENS IN VERNON HILLS
Vernon Hills, Illinois–
North Shore Baseball Academy (NSBA) is pleased to announce it has opened a new sports academy in Vernon Hills: North Shore Sports Academy (NSSA), 400 Corporate Parkway Drive - Suite 200, Vernon Hills, Illinois, 60061. The completely renovated 13,000 square foot sports facility accommodates teams, group lessons and private lessons for a variety of sports. NSSA is outfitted with Field Turf a high-end indoor turf which is ideal for baseball, softball, soccer and football practices. Co-owner, John Stutz, commented on this unique turf, “The forgiving nature of the Field Turf is great for our athletes because of the way it is replicates outdoor grass. The Field Turf is thick and has a cushion, or flexibility, to it so players can get an ‘outdoor’ feel indoors. This allows our athletes to train and compete harder. Diving plays are common place at NSSA.”The new academy also has 25 foot ceilings, high output motion sensor lighting and flexible batting cages creating an open and flexible training space for most sports. “Currently, we have baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, and football teams practicing at NSSA,” said Stutz. “In a few weeks, we will be opening our new weight room and lounge area which will be tremendous features of the Academy.”
NSSA’s weight room will be open to all athletes. Sports specific trainers will be available to work with athletes to help them condition for their specific sport and/or position. Peter Dallas, Stutz’ business partner and co-owner, points out that “a baseball pitcher needs specific conditioning for his body, whereas, a hockey player, will need a completely different hockey training routine. At NSSA, our trainers are the best in their industry and are experts at building a customized training program for a specific athlete’s needs.”
The new NSSA location is configured to allow for both open area team practices, as well as individual workouts, due to movable nets and cages within the facility. NSSA is open to any athlete interested in improving their game and in need of an indoor workout facility. Teams and/or individuals interested in practicing, conditioning or taking lessons at NSSA, may contact John Stutz or Ryan Whitcomb at: 847.383.5264 or visit their websites: www.playnsba.com & www.teamnsba.org
NSSA is located on Corporate Parkway Drive, just off Milwaukee Avenue between Route 60 and Route 22.
