What Your Peers are Saying
“I have spent the past couple years traveling the country promoting USSSA Fastpitch and believe that Overland Park is right at the top for destination events. They have great complexes for the competitions, and the teams are able to plan their vacations around these events because of all the fun filled family activities they offer. Overland Park has quality hotels, a tremendous CVB, and tons of activities for teams to enjoy.”

In reference to the Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex: “This is one of the best all-around soccer facilities I have been to. The twelve turf fields are perfectly placed in groups of four, and there’s plenty of parking for large events, and it’s very easy to get in and out of and to navigate around the complex from field to field. It’s also right smack in the middle of the country with plenty of hotels in the area. You know when you go to an event at Overland Park, you will have a good experience.”
