nation.academy announces new facility designs

Charleston, SC – nation.academy today announced new design concepts for its nation.academy club partners and wholly owned markets. 

nation.academy club, which was announced earlier this year for season 2021, provides a facility development platform, back office support (online registration, payment processing, app, etc.), partnership access (equipment, training systems, recruiting tools, etc.) and more.  

The new designs allow nation.academy to be flexible in both market development and site selection to assist markets it enters with partners or on its own.

“Markets vary wildly in terms of opportunity, site acquisition, permitting, zoning and other considerations around getting to final construction.  So, we needed to be more flexible and modular in our design concepts so we can adapt to different markets faster,” noted nation.academy interim CEO Anthony Gebbia.

nation.academy lab provides nation.academy members and affiliates a branded experience to train during the timeframe that occurs while building a larger permanent facility in national markets.  Ideally these are two full basketball/futsal courts which allow four volleyball courts, an esports lounge, sport performance and space for amenities, but will feature various designs based on market needs and timing. This could be a leased space or dome solution.  In smaller markets a lab could support a larger nation.academy facility in a state.

nation.academy satellite provides nation.academy members and affiliates a branded experience to train, play and host small sized events up to 64 teams.  Ideally these are four full basketball/futsal courts which allow eight volleyball courts, an esports lounge, sport performance and space for amenities.  These facilities typically will support a larger nation.academy facility in the state but reside in a smaller market.

nation.academy campus provides nation.academy members and affiliates a branded experience to train, play and host medium sized events up to 128 teams.  Ideally these are eight full basketball/futsal courts which allow sixteen volleyball courts, an esports lounge, sport performance and space for amenities.  These facilities are typically the primary nation.academy site in a state.

nation.academy mall provides nation.academy members and affiliates a branded experience to train, play and host large size events up to 256 teams.  Ideally these are sixteen full basketball/futsal courts which allow thirty-two volleyball courts, an esports lounge, sport performance and space for amenities.  Mall facilities are more difficult to get done and typically take much longer than a campus development.  These facilities are typically the primary nation.academy site in a region of the country. 

nation.academy beach provides nation.academy members and affiliates a beach experience that can be stand alone or bolted onto other facilities.  Ideally these are four court facilities or larger based on the market size and interest.

Facility renderings will be released in due course through our web site and social media accounts.
