Opened in 2008, the Newfoundland & Labrador Sports Centre is the pre-eminent sports competition and training venue in Atlantic Canada. The venue is conveniently located in the heart of St. John’s, in close proximity to hotels, the downtown core and the St. John’s International Airport, making it an ideal host for a variety of competitions and training camps.
With an unobstructed interior floor space of 64 meters by 45 meters, the centre is half the size of a soccer field, with a ceiling height of more than 10 meters. The Centre has the largest hardwood floor east of Montreal, which can be sub-divided into four equal spaces, providing it with the ability to accommodate any number of teams at one time. The venue has played host to a number of competitions over the years, including VolleyFest, Sportfest (2011), Eastern Canadian Gymnastics Championships (2013), World Cup of Darts (2013) and the 2014 Canadian Boccia Championships.
Techniplex is a state of the art indoor field turf facility for field sports. Originally established in 2006 to provide a regulation-sized indoor field to the Newfoundland soccer community to allow for year-round training, Techniplex has since expanded its client base to include other field sports. Though soccer is still the primary user of the facility, with the Newfoundland and Labrador Soccer Association maintaining its headquarters on the premises, football, rugby, frisbee, softball, lacrosse and many other sports all use the facility to bolster their training capabilities.
