Youth and Family Focused

Each year, thousands of 6- to 19-year-olds will use Champion Ridge’s facilities. Add in adults and families and usage could top tens of thousands.

Huge Economic Impact
The Ridge’s economic impact for Bremer County provides over $1,000,000 every year. Over the next decade, The Ridge will inject tens of millions into the area economy.

Improved Traffic Safety and Reduced Noise
During ball tournaments and the Bremer County Fair, everyone (youth, participants, parents, spectators) faces increased pedestrian and vehicle risk at the present 4th Avenue location in Waverly. A new facility removes bottlenecks and hazards – and reduces noise in a residential neighborhood.

Future Growth
New cultural events and sports shows, RV camping, an ice rink, a bigger Fair and more large-scale ball tournaments, and youth-centered clinics make Champions Ridge a convenient regional hub.

Permanent Home... With Room to Grow!
The Fair, adult softball, and youth baseball share under-sized and over-utilized facilities in a 19-acre Waverly city park featuring the city pool, skate park, four picnic shelters, a large play unit, three ball diamonds plus the Fair buildings. Also, kids play on a 3-diamond facility on the AMVETS property. Both locations flooded in 2008 and neither site has any room for growth.
