Titan Sports and Performance Center makes impact in multiple ways
Titan Sports Complex has taken the term “multi-purpose facility” to another level.
The nearly 200,000 square foot facility has many uses for a variety of sports, however, their mission remains the same: develop young athletes to be ahead of the curve.
On one end of Titan Sports Complex sits hardwood floors which are used for basketball, futsal and volleyball. On the other end are turf soccer fields used for soccer, lacrosse as well as some football and baseball practices.
In between the two is the Jenks Martial Arts Academy, a membership only health club, group fitness classes and the sports armory. Titan also has childcare services, a sports bar, and Tulsa Bone and Joint operates out of Titan as well. The sports complex offers several party packages for birthdays and special events.
While all these aspects don’t seem to coincide with one another, Titan makes sure its customers get the full scope.
“Anybody who is specialized in one sport, I find that to be a problem because sports are seasonal,” General Manager of sports performance and health Jeff Pace said. “What happens is, they try to find a way to do something year-round.”
It’s not just keeping athletes engaged year-round, Pace pushes his athletes to be well versed in many aspects of their training.
Pace has been in the fitness business since 1998 and in those 21 years he has built standing relationships with athletes from a young age to those who are now professional athletes. Before Titan, Pace operated Ultimate Sports Complex, a facility he grew from 10,000 square feet to 20,000 square feet due to demand.
He partnered up with another sports group to create Titan Sports Complex.
“I had this model in mind, there was another group in town with the model in mind,” Pace said. “Nobody had really put the whole thing together. I presented an idea on how this thing would work, how to put it all together. Me and Stan Leidel collaborated on getting this thing reformatted and presented to our investment group.”
Following a time-steaking process, Titan Sports Complex was completed in 2017. Since, it’s been everything Pace had in mind.
He’s continued the model adopted at his Ultimate Sports Complex and it’s still thriving. Pace regularly meets with professional athletes in their offseason looking to stay fit, many of whom have worked with Pace from a young age.
“We have a long term, linear development model that takes the young kids and gives them the proper training for their age that leads to the next stage of development; we just keep ramping it up and layering elements as they develop all the way up to the professional level,” Pace said. “At every single stage they’re prepared for what’s next in their sport.”
Titan Sports Complex is located at 101 E 81st St in Tulsa. For more information visit titansportscomplex.com or call 895-8000.
At Titan, their mission is to keep athletes one step ahead of the competition.
“Most people just follow the bouncing ball and they spend a lot of time doing ball work, they’re on the courts, they’re on the field,” Pace said. “And you do have to do that to learn a sport. We try to marry the two things. In this competitive market, you find yourself competing the sport itself. We’re in a situation where, in the collegiate level, they are thrust into an environment they’re not ready for when they get there as freshman. Now they may be doing strength and conditioning for the first time ever.”
