Sportika was conceived as a full encompassing sports complex solution to satisfy the demand of both elite and recreational athletes. Since opening in March 2017, Sportika has become the “Mecca” of indoor sports facilities on the East Coast, and it is emerging as a leader and model for youth development and sports performance training programs nationwide.
“Sportika’s mission is to provide a comprehensive ‘humanistic’ approach to developing young athletes,” said Jeffrey L. Jordan, Sportika CEO. “Sportika is committed to developing not only the physical skill of each young athlete, but also their intellect, emotion, instinct and intuition. We have an opportunity to change the industry when it comes to youth sports.”
“Very few people make it to professional sports. Our goal is to prepare athletes to be well rounded, socially conscious, global thinking citizens, and to not only to get them into college, but to have them thrive, whether they are playing their sport or not.”
Sportika offers 3 sports in academy-style settings for student-athletes and their families. Our soccer division, FC Sportika, has grown to 26 teams and our baseball academy has expanded to 12 teams heading into the upcoming season. Our basketball AAU program, Sportika Hoop Nation, has been developing into one our New Jersey’s premier organizations and will take 30 teams into the winter 2018 season.
“In addition to building a comprehensive, humanistic approach to the development of our student-athletes, Sportika is also a world-class venue offering tremendous sports facilities, including indoor turf and hardwood court space, event rooms, classrooms, strategy rooms, state-of-the-art family lounge amenities, and a full-service concessions area. Together, we are Faster / Stronger / Smarter.”
