Phield House Fills a Gap – For Camp and More – as Philly’s Indoor Sports Facility

*This is a sponsored post created in partnership with Phield House*

That dreaded period of time when schools have let out for the summer, but most camps and other summer activities have not yet begun presents a difficult challenge for parents of school-aged kids.

Phield House, the indoor sports complex at 9th & Spring Garden, is offering a special “Gap Camp” program to fill the lull.  The day camp allows kids ages 6-14 to come in for one or two weeks filled with all kinds of sports and activities.

Local parents Mark and Rachel Solomon created Phield House after being frustrated having to spend weekends trekking their two young sons from Center City to South Jersey and the far Philly ‘burbs’ to indoor facilities for practices, games and bouncy-house birthday parties – they wanted to fill the indoor sports void in Philly.

They opened the doors of 25,000-square foot indoor, air-conditioned sports facility in November 2017 —the only one of its kind in Philadelphia—specifically designed for playing and training for a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, volleyball and more.

Phield House offers two turf fields (which can be combined to create one large field), a basketball court, and two batting cages. There is also a lounge and party room.

To help facilitate the two weeks of Gap Camp and ten weeks of Summer Camp, Phield House partnered with suburban camp experts, LifeSeeds, which provides quality sports instruction and healthy competition in a safe environment. 

Kids will be offered development and competition in three different sports – basketball, soccer, and baseball/softball (in the form of Quickball) each week. Additionally, Gap and Summer Camp emphasizes the importance of character development and fill each day with experiential activities that teach the qualities that are fundamental to success in sports and in life.

Attendees will get to play a variety of sports and other activities including pickleball, dodgeball, kickball, and more.  Non-sports activities are also a part of the program using a unique and fun framework called “Pride Groups” that compete for a weekly championship. Campers are honored every day for demonstrating character attributes that make them good teammates.

Outside of camps, Phield House offers memberships for individuals and families as well as several youth and adult sports leagues. The facility offers on-site parking and a wifi lounge great for parents who want to get some work done!
