Business Visit to Frederick Indoor Sports Center (FISC)

The Frederick Indoor Sports Center (FISC) hosted a business visit by Frederick County representatives on March 1, 2010. Frederick Alderman Michael O’Connor joined members of the Office of Economic Development (OED) and several members of their partnering agencies as part of their outreach efforts. OED coordinates monthly business visits throughout the year to tour and learn more about the County’s business community.

New owners of the facility, Mr. Tony Checchia and Mr. Jay Jeffrey, provided the group a company overview and a tour of their 65,000 square foot indoor sports facility. The owners have made significant renovations to the former Frederick SportsPlex facility, which include a new FieldTurf playing surface on the south field, new lighting and a sports lounge/café. They currently have 10 employees and have plans to expand the current facility 20,000 square feet for a gymnasium to open in 2011.

The center focuses on turf-related sports including soccer, lacrosse and football. They have plans to expand to include other activities such as dodgeball, kickball and field hockey. There are several tenants located within the sports facility that provide complimentary services. Some of the tenants include: La La’s Kingdom Fundamental Fitness, Frederick Memorial Hospital, 368 Athletics and Venues Sports Café & Delicatessen.

For more information, please visit their website at or by contacting the facility at 240-215-4040. FISC is located at 1845 Brookfield Court, Frederick, Maryland.
