The UWM Sports Complex (UWMSC) is a 378,400 square foot facility that is managed by ReImagine Recreation and contains two indoor turf soccer fields, one full-sized at 110×85 yards and the other 85×50 yards, as well as a full-sized outdoor turf field. In addition to the turf surfaces, the facility also offers a spacious fieldhouse which contains eight (8) basketball courts, each of which can also be configured into two (2) volleyball courts. The fieldhouse surface is the latest and greatest technology in indoor sports, made of a composite material more consistent and durable than traditional hardwood without sacrificing the flex and even adding additional cushion for athlete safety.
Inside of this state of the art facility, you will find state of the art programming. UWMSC is the home of United FC, Liverpool FC – Michigan (affiliate of the world-renowned Liverpool FC based in England), and Michigan Elite Volleyball Academy (the second-largest youth volleyball club in the United States). Each of these youth athletic clubs provides world class coaching and training, all right here in Oakland County.
Even more important than top tier youth athletics is top tier youth enrichment. ReImagine Recreation has partnered with a multitude of Pontiac based youth enrichment providers giving them a safe, quality, and spacious resource for them to use to the benefit of our community’s youth, many of which are free of charge. More information on each of these programs, as well as the other activities that take place at UWMSC, can be found below.
