NSC Master planning project

2017 NSC Master Plan

Help shape the next 30 years of the National Sports Center.

Seeking public input

The Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission, which is the state agency in charge of the National Sports Center, is turning 30 years old. Over this time, the National Sports Center has grown to become the world’s largest amateur sports facility. It is known for having quality facilities, hosting the nation’s top amateur sporting events and running tournaments and leagues that are second to none.

We are extremely proud of our past, but even more excited about the future.  We want to ensure that both our campus and our events continue to be the best in the country for the next 30 years. 

Thus, to help guide our work we have embarked on a long-term campus master planning process. We’ve retained LHB, a multi-disciplinary engineering, architecture, and planning firm to assist us with these efforts. A key part of this process involves seeking input and gathering customer feedback. We have invited several key stakeholders to attend special focus group sessions, and we held a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, May 2nd.

Refer back to this site for periodic updates. The process will continue through the summer and final plan is expected to be released in Fall 2017. Send questions and comments to Project Director Scott Roth (sroth@nscsports.org).

Please take a few moments with the survey below and help us plan for the next 30 years of Minnesota amateur sports. The survey will be available until May 31, 2017.
