The 1st Source Bank Performance Center was completed on April 9, 2015. This massive 17,000 square foot building is unsurpassed in professional amenities and usable space for athletes who want superior training to enhance their game.
At the 1st Source Bank Performance Center, players will be training in the same professional setting as the South Bend Cubs; no other facility is as advanced and can make that claim. Their professional baseball and softball trainers will build customized plans for one-on-one lessons or group clinics.
The entire arena is covered in Turfix® synthetic rollout turf to enhance play and to emulate conditions found on many high school and college campuses in the Midwest, including the University of Notre Dame and Western Michigan University. The arena boasts superior lighting levels so players will never lose sight of the ball. Good players know lighting is important in a training facility.
A 2,500-square-foot observation deck overlooks the training area on one side and Four Winds Field on the other. The facility is open 7 days a week, even during home games. Drop-in players and visitors are always welcome.
