Former gym facility will house indoor sports programs

The former home of Annandale Sport & Health Club.

Kids Choice Sports is hoping to open in mid-September in the old warehouse-style building on 4317 Ravensworth Road, Annandale. The previous tenant in that building, the Annandale Sport & Health Club, closed June 30.

Kids Choice Sports will offer teams and/or classes in soccer, football, basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, and gymnastics—for kids, youths, and adults, said owner Mo Sheta, the general manager of the Northern Virginia Royals soccer club.

The original Kids Choice Sports program is based at the new Prince William Athletic Center in Woodbridge. Sheta said the program is expanding to Annandale because “a good opportunity presented itself.”

The Annandale center will offer team and individual registrations, he said. Teams will play on leagues, and people who register as individuals will be assigned to a team. The facilities can also be rented for team practice, classes, and other sports activities.

Meanwhile, Sheta is working on organizing leagues, lining up instructors, and fixing up the building. The exterior of the building will be painted and synthetic turf fields will be installed inside.

  1. The programs at Kids Choice may be great but the facility is filthy, unsanitary and unsafe--huge pile of empty beer cans behind the kids' goal, sharp debris and trash all over the filed and the staff seem to care less.
