Posted by  //  September 1, 2014  //  Local Business, News

Can you believe the J.M. McDonald Sports Complex has been in business for 10 years now? It seems just like yesterday that we opened our doors to the youth of our community for healthy programs and activities. For over a decade, the J.M. McDonald Sports Complex has been working with its partners to build healthy habits for the young people of our community. We are proud to have serviced over 2 million visitors to the Sports Complex since the inception of our organization.

On Saturday, September 13, the Sports Complex invites the public to participate in MAC FEST, a showcase of the recreational groups and activities offered at the facility throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to attend this FREE event between the hours of 11 am and 3 pm to gain more information on ice skating, youth hockey, learn to skate, CHAMP afterschool program, NFL Youth Flag Football, youth soccer programs, youth lacrosse programs including box lacrosse, YMCA Gymnastics, and more. This is a great opportunity to get information while the children participate with interactive games and activities designed by each program or activity. Admission to the event is FREE. There will be a small participation fee charged for certain activities such as the CHAMP FUN CENTER located in our small turf where children can jump and play in our bounce houses, test their skills in our obstacle course, and learn more about our CHAMP Afterschool program and Summer Camp. The GAME TRUCK will be parked outside our main entrance to offer a thrilling video gaming experience to all ages. All participation fees collected at this event go directly to the sponsoring youth organization.

Don’t forget the great food that will be available at MAC FEST! A chicken barbeque will be available from 11 am until sold out, cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones and other fun snacks will be available at the MAC SNACK SHACK. Crossroads the Clown will make a special appearance to entertain the youngsters and face painting will be available for a minimal fee. Before MAC FEST begins, the Sports Complex is sponsoring its first 5K fun run and walk. Families of all ages are invited to participate. There is a registration fee for adults and reduced price for youth. We encourage everyone to sign up to support the Sports Complex kick off its anniversary celebrations with this 5K event. Registration details are found on our website at www.jmmcomplex.com.

Suit-Kote Arena will be hosting a variety of activities during this special day long anniversary celebration. Youth Hockey will be showcasing the talent of their young players in the morning hours where you may actually see a special appearance from some of the Cortland-Homer Golden Eagles Hockey players prior to 1 pm. Public Skating will be offered FREE to the public during this event from 1:30 – 2:45 pm (Skate Rental $2). Starting at 3 pm, the Cortland Figures Skating Club is hosting a Skate-A-Thon where anyone can register to help raise funds for the Learn to Skate program. If skating is not your thing, you can sponsor a skater at this event by contacting Jessica Vaughn through their website at www.cortlandskating.com Beginning at 6 pm, the SUNY Cortland Women’s Hockey team will be showing off their hockey skills and the public is invited to stop in to watch some great hockey action.

We invite the public to stop by on September 13 for MAC FEST and more and see for yourself what all the excitement is about at the Sports Complex. We are sincerely thank you to the CNY Community for their support over the past 10 years and look forward to providing a quality recreational experience for children in the future.
