Expanding opportunity
for LA’s youth

A Marquee Sports and Academic Campus for the Region

The Carol Kimmelman Athletic and Academic Campus is envisioned as a vibrant, welcoming and safe place where local youth can access exceptional athletic facilities and academic programming that rank among the best available in the nation.

The landmark complex in Carson will make its programs available at little or no cost to underserved local youth and families.

A state-of-the-art learning center equipped with high-tech equipment, labs and classrooms to prepare students for college and success in the 21st century workforce.

A top-tier tennis center spanning 29-acres that will be the largest public tennis venue on the West Coast. Dynamic tennis programming for children of all ages and abilities will take place on the hard and clay courts. There will also be a spectator venue for tournaments and a fully equipped fitness center.

Additional sports and recreation facilities will include soccer and multi-purpose fields that can accommodate rugby and other sports; basketball courts; a sprint track; and training turf to promote active and healthy lifestyles for the entire community.

Our campus will be located adjacent to the 405 Freeway in Carson, near Compton, Harbor City and Wilmington. The project is undergoing a public review process led by Los Angeles County, with an anticipated groundbreaking in 2020.

"This campus will open new doors for youth in Carson and across the region, I am so eager to see it come to life!"
