Carondelet’s New Sports Complex

Feb 03, 2016 05:58PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

Last December, Carondelet High School in Concord announced it had signed a purchase agreement to acquire ClubSport Valley Vista from Leisure Sports, Inc.

The 6-acre property, located in Walnut Creek, is a tennis, swim, and fitness club. The facility was scheduled to close on January 31 but will remain open for members through the transition of ownership. Since Carondelet has no outdoor athletic fields on its small campus, the purchase will provide tennis courts, a seven-lane swimming pool, exercise facility, and also space for new soccer/lacrosse and softball fields.

“Any changes we make would need to get city approval, and we’re currently working with city administrators to determine what level of approval we would need. We do not have a timeframe for when this will be a ‘done deal,’ but we are in the process of doing our due diligence, and the timeline will depend largely on how quickly we can move through the city approval process,” said Jennifer Ortega, Carondelet’s director of communications.

Carondelet has been looking for over a year to acquire land to build an outdoor athletics complex to support their student athletes. “This property will enable us to provide our young women and our school with high-quality outdoor athletic fields and enable us to expand our programming, community outreach, and summer offerings,” said Carondelet High School President Bonnie Cotter. Carondelet is exploring ways the facility can continue to serve as a resource for the community during this time of transition and in the future.
