A Marquee Sports and Academic Campus for the Region
The mission of the Carol Kimmelman Athletic and Academic Campus is to provide a comprehensive community center that offers high-caliber academic and athletic programs for under-resourced children and families. An innovative public-private partnership with Los Angeles County gave CKAAC its site, which aspire to include:
- A 25,000 square-foot Learning Center
- 87 acres consisting of nearly 50 tennis courts and five full-size soccer fields, as well as other multipurpose athletic facilities, including baseball fields, basketball courts, track and field, fitness and play areas
- Variety of spaces open to use for events by the community.
The landmark complex in Carson will make its programs available at little or no cost to local youth and families.
