Louisville, Ky. (November 30, 2022) -  The Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center has undeniably changed the face of indoor track and field in the Louisville region by making the sport more accessible to local athletes than ever before. The 2022-23 season is shaping up to be the best since the venue opened in 2020 with the addition of several championship events. 

The facility's indoor track season kicks off on December 4 with the Commonwealth College Opener and continues with more than 20 youth, high school, college, and masters meets through March 2023. Some of the more notable meets on the calendar include the 2023 ACC Indoor Track and Field Championships, USA Track & Field Youth Indoor Championship, USA Track & Field Masters Indoor Championship, and the Louisville Indoor Games

During the 2021-22 indoor track season, the venue hosted 20 indoor track meets including the Mid-South and Appalachian Athletic Conference Championships; the Louisville Urban League / Kentucky State University HBCU Classic; the American Track League pro meet and the Kentucky Indoor High School State Championships. These meets featured 9,000 athletes from more than 80 colleges, 20 foreign countries, 250 US cities and 27 US states. This year's track meets are expected to draw even more athletes and spectators and generate a larger economic impact for Louisville's west end and the surrounding areas. 

“It’s exciting to see how quickly the Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center has made a positive difference in our community,” said Louisville Sports Commission Vice President of Sports Development Greg Fante. “In two short years, events held at the facility have brought in more than $20 million in economic impact and continue to position Louisville as a regional and national hub for a variety of sporting events. But just as important are the number of student-athletes who have had the opportunity to compete at a high level in a world-class facility that is quickly becoming the heart of the Russell neighborhood.”

Athletes at all levels of the sport will have the opportunity to compete on one of the fastest indoor tracks in the world this season.
