Prior to that year, the majority of all recreation activity took place in downtown Warsaw at Center Lake Park. With the expansion of Zimmer Headquarters, Mayor Jeff Plank took the initiative to improve Center Lake Park, which is now called Central Park. With these improvements, of Central Park was not able to house quality athletic fields so Mayor Plank proposed the CCAC. The CCAC would also be used as a major source for developing economical impact, for the County. The CCAC was funded by many local businesses from the Community, along with assistance from the City, County and several grants. Today, the CCAC still relies on assistance from the City of Warsaw and the Kosciusko County Convention Visitor & Recreation Commission. All monies generated from the CCAC goes back into operations and improvements. The CCAC is a not- for-profit 501 (c) 3. In 1994 the CCAC began running sanctioned leagues and tournaments through the National Softball Association sanctioning body. Today the CCAC is recognized as one of the top facilities in the Nation, hosting National Tournaments in Men’s, Women’s and youth events. The CCAC leases the facility to independent groups such as KCSL Soccer, Wave Travel Soccer, Hispanic Soccer, NISL Soccer, and many individuals and teams. In 2008 the CCAC was the 1st Indiana Park inducted into the NSA Fast Pitch Softball Hall of Fame. PARK IMPROVEMENTS Over the past several years, many improvements have been made to the CCAC in addition to the normal repairs and upkeep. Most recently the CCAC received grants from the K21 Foundation to re-crown all 8 softball/baseball diamonds and from the Community Foundation to build and install safety/shade canopies over all of the bleachers on all 8 diamonds. In 2008/2009 the CCAC opened a Pro Shop that sells sporting good equipment and an enclosed meeting/banquet hall that is available for year round rentals. In 2008 the CCAC added a concession/announcement building to our premier soccer field. We continue to reinvest in our future with many new additions, programs and repairs. The CCAC has initiated a brick paver fundraiser. The funds raised from this program will pay for a marquee at the park entrance. You will find out more about this program, along with your order form, within this brochure. The CCAC hopes to have the marquee installed in 2009.

Since that time it has been serving the youth of Kosciusko County by providing recreational soccer leagues for all youth ages 5 to 16, regardless of skill level. Our goal is to provide instruction, while keeping soccer fun. The league has been ver y fortunate to have corporate sponsorships to fund a limited number of membership scholarships to those in need. Registration numbers have grown steadily over the last several years to reach approximately 650 players with some 100 volunteer coaches. The league has formed an association with the Fever Academy which is a premier soccer club in Northern Indiana. The relationship with the Fever Academy is evolving with plans for KCSL to join with the Fever Academy and the Three Rivers Youth Soccer Association to form a recreational plus soccer league. This alliance would create an avenue of play for those players who are ready to move up from recreational play but not quite ready for travel leagues. The KCSL remains a local soccer club with a local board and volunteers. KCSL will benefit greatly from the expertise of the Fever Academy’s Director’s of Coaching, by bringing our level of instruction to a higher standard. The league’s home for the last several years has been the CCAC, with whom we enjoy a great working relationship. For more information please contact Tracey Rose at email@example.com.
