Developers Dave Atcherley and Mike Vacendak had the dream of building a one-of-a-kind indoor recreational facility for the people of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. That dream is now a reality! Since opening November 8, 2004, the 88,000 square foot building is buzzing with activity. It holds a full-size P.I.A.A. soccer field (divided into 3 smaller fields) as well as three high school hardwood basketball courts. The $4 million facility is a fixed steel structure unlike common fabric domes. It is the only sports complex of its kind for over 50 miles! All-Sports Enterprises (responsible for the materials used in the construction of Riverfront) has rated Riverfront #1 on a list of 500 buildings constructed nationally!
We also provide opportunity for football, flag-football, field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, softball, and baseball. There are leagues, tournaments, and camps in addition to field and court rentals. Some nights are designated “open” nights. Training sessions are offered for those seeking to improve their game. The facility houses a concession stand and a room for birthday parties or meetings. There is something for everyone of every age. If you want to do it, we will try to make it happen! Don’t miss your chance to be involved in Scranton’s sports facility!
“Riverfront Sports is a great new recreational facility that fills the need for an indoor venue for soccer, football, and basketball. With the Ice Box indoor hockey located next door, Memorial Stadium and other Scranton High School playing fields across the street, and Weston Field two blocks away, it is in the center of what is becoming the region’s premier sports complex.”
