The national soccer training center, Pinnacle, serves as the new, full-time training home for Sporting KC. Located on the southeast corner of 98th Street and Parallel Parkway in Kansas City, Kansas, it houses three tenants, including U.S. Soccer’s coaching and refereeing training programs and Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center.

The main facility is split between all three entities, with the clinic occupying a branch of the lower floor. Among Pinnacle’s numerous amenities are five, full-size soccer fields; a cutting-edge sports performance lab; an expansive sports performance gymnasium; and multiple spaces designed specifically for coaching education, including a two-story coaching pavilion. The Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center accommodates a wide-range of rehabilitation techniques. It includes a radiology center, an indoor turf field and basketball court, a gait lab and a workout room shared with Sporting KC players.

Designed by Populous and constructed by Turner Construction, we supplied roller shades, shelving and other specialty products for this innovative facility. We also worked closely with IT to integrate the motorized roller shades with the building’s A/V system. By acting as a resource to the contractor, we were able to quickly source and supply items throughout construction, helping to move the project forward.
