USTA Southern California |
Some of the nation’s leading names in athletics and education are teaming up to be part of the world-class Carol Kimmelman Athletic and Academic Campus – envisioned as one of the largest and most extraordinary community-serving sports and education centers in America.
Spearheaded by the Kimmelman Family Foundation, the state-of-the-art Kimmelman Campus is expected to span more than 80 acres and feature up to 52 tennis courts, soccer and multi-purpose fields, and a state-of-the-art academic center with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focus.
The USTA Foundation – the United States Tennis Association’s charitable arm – and the Tiger Woods-founded TGR Foundation will join with AEG, and the LA Galaxy to help support the landmark new complex in Carson, which will make its programs
available at little or no cost to underserved local youth and families.
“We are delighted to announce such acclaimed and accomplished partners for the Carol Kimmelman Athletic and Academic Campus,” said Doug Kimmelman, President of the Kimmelman Family Foundation and husband of Carol Kimmelman. “They will be instrumental as we honor Carol’s legacy by helping children from underserved backgrounds access the facilities, coaches, teachers and curriculum needed to put them on a path to college and life success.”
The project is currently undergoing a public review process led by Los Angeles County, who owns the property where the new development is envisioned. The County Board of Supervisors is still completing an environmental review of the site, and is expected to consider a long-term lease for the project in late summer. If approved by the County, a groundbreaking is anticipated in early 2020.
