When we began the $40 Million renovation and expansion of our complex back in 2012, we had one goal. We wanted to be the best place for competitive youth, high school events, college sporting events, college and professional recruiting.
Our facility is a sports complex to beat all sports complexes. It’s a place where athletes of all levels can practice and play in facilities fit for the pros and truly improve their ability to compete in the game and move to the next level. For the youth athlete it's all about moving to the next level. Here at the Cocoa Expo the complex was designed and created by our corporate board of directors, our owners, our employees and our staff that is made up of real baseball people, such as D-1 head coaches, D-2 head coaches, professional MLB veteran players and many other baseball and softball individuals that have helped to create and shape the Southern United States travel, college and professional baseball and softball industry. Our internal connections and relationships with the MLB, NCAA, NAIA and JUCO colleges and coaches are like no other in the industry. With our superior MLB style facilities, training center, relationships and events allows us to promote and assist placement of athletes to the NCAA, NAIA and JUCO for college placement like no others can. We are privately owned, we are not a county or city owned, run down, has been complex or a baseball team that runs from place to place competing for rented fields and space. Since our renovation we are a $100 million privately owned industry leader, along with an array of baseball professionals, which allows for full control of the athletes future in sports. It's all about the athlete moving to the next level and at Cocoa Expo Sports Center we will assist like no other organization to get you where you want to be as a successful competitive athlete and move to the next level.
Once you step foot in our sports complex, you’ll say mission accomplished. From the flexibility of our 100,000 foot gym with 11 NBA/NCAA/FIBA regulation hardwood basketball courts (completion 2016) and 14 hardwood volleyball courts to the magnitude of our 30,000 square foot training facility with state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment, we’ve covered every base. Speaking of bases, our 17 baseball fields—all of which are NCAA regulation, 30 bull pens, and 15 indoor AC'd batting cages with video simulated pitching machines score big with baseball teams across the country. Throw in the ML baseball stadium that features a 40ft video Jumbotron scoreboard, and we’d say we’ve knocked it out of the park.
Of course the ideal sports complex would also give teams more time to play and train. That’s why we pushed the state-of-the-arts theme all the way to lodging, dining, and entertainment. Our private team dormitory style hotels will give players the chance to unwind in style with a 50" big screen TV in every room. They can also relax with teammates over ping pong, billiards, and arcade games in the All Star Players Lounge. If they’re feeling more adventurous, players can take advantage of their all-access pass to the Cocoa Expo Water Park where water slides and cooling stations are a short walk from their rooms.

Rather than trekking out for a meal, teams can dine together at the All Star Buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner where all meals will be hot and fresh from our on staff professional gormet chef. Players can also grab healthy snacks at the All Star Café in between meals.
While we've got plenty to keep athletes entertained with our Water Park and Players Lounge—we're also surrounded by attractions. Tour the Kennedy Space Center or visit the world-famous Cocoa Beach. Or take a short drive to Universal Studios, Disney World, and Sea World. (Learn more about our neighborhood in the Cocoa Beach Visitors Guide)
Our location also affords us gorgeous weather year-round with average temperatures at a comfortable 78 degrees—making playing indoors or out a year-round sport. Not to mention, the weather is always perfect for sun and surf in our Water Park or nearby beaches.
We dare you to find a better backdrop for competition.
