ContactPoint Horizons – Intown’s first indoor multi-sport facility – is gearing up for summer camps and fine-tuning their regular schedule, which will start in August. This joint effort between Atlanta ContactPoint and Dragon Goal is housed at the Horizons School at 1900 DeKalb Ave., nestled in the Lake Claire/Candler Park neighborhoods. “We have created a unique indoor space for sports, fitness and education. We hope to provide programming for a wide range of ages, skill and demographics,” David Epstein, Atlanta ContactPoint co-founder, said. Atlanta ContactPoint is a nonprofit that promotes sports, education, arts, wellness, nutrition and social/environmental responsibility for Atlantans of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. You may know the organization from the Play Days it has hosted at local parks throughout the city. “When we lost our space in Druid Hills, we met with the leaders at Horizons School and worked out an agreement to renovate and utilize their gym,” Epstein explained. Their new home includes a Dragon Goal turfed field that can accommodate small-sided soccer, short stick lacrosse, tennis and more. In a smaller enclosed field, players take more touches and learn to react more quickly and with greater accuracy. “There’s no stoppage – so you can play a really great 3v3 or 4v4 game or you can just do training exercises,” said Todd Burr with Dragon Goal. It’s for younger players who may otherwise be lost on a big field all the way up to pro soccer teams that still train in them. Since it opened this winter, ContactPoint Horizons has already hosted a winter youth soccer league, adults soccer games and lots of multi-sports birthday parties. “Our winter league had 40 youth teams from Inter Atlanta and DDY,” Nicola Vidali, Dragon Goal USA Founder and Managing Director, shared. And if you’re curious about how quick you dribble or how hard you kick the ball, you have another reason to check out ContactPoint Horizons. Soccer Genius, which uses sensor and radar technology, is available there to give players benchmark data on specific drills and realistic game action movements. ContactPoint Horizons has also teamed up with Evolution Sports Lab’s David Migliore to offer on-site private or group strength and conditioning to help athletes increase performance, prevent injury or assist in their rehab process. All of these components are intended to compliment what players are doing with their respective club and school soccer teams. Not a soccer player? There are other multi-sport programs and Play Day experiences available to engage kids of all ages and skill levels through the power of play. Sword fighting, anyone? The facility also has two basketball hoops for shooting practice, a game-room with foosball and table tennis, a dedicated room to celebrate with food and drinks, and a large learning center room. It’s a no-brainer for a birthday party, team bonding event, community event or corporate retreat because of all the audiovisual technologies available on-site. And this could just be the beginning. Vidali and Epstein, the visionaries behind ContactPoint Horizons, still have their eyes on the Pullman Yard property. Recently put back on the market, this nearby 25-acre abandoned industrial site, also on DeKalb Avenue in Kirkwood, has peaked their interest for the past four years. “We are still involved with pursuing Pullman Yard and helping to transform the abandoned property into a vital community space,” Epstein said.
