Current Update On Horizons Edge Facility
We are happy to announce that with the states’ announcement of phase 3, Horizons Edge is preparing to begin leagues and tournaments! We are so excited to be able to bring sports back to the Valley. We have been working hard to prepare our campus for a safe and healthy environment. We will require all visitors to wear a face mask while inside The Edge. Children under the age of 10 are not required to wear a mask. The only time you may not wear a mask is when you are playing, coaching, reffing or eating. We appreciate your understanding and compliance.
Reservations for rentals are also available with a 24-hour notice. Our Clip n’ Climb wall will remain closed during this time and our business hours will be 8:30 – 5:30 Monday through Friday.
We are all in this together – and together we are stronger!
Horizons Edge is proud to be a partner to our community as we all come back stronger than ever. We know there are many in our area hurting and experiencing hardships. We are committed to providing a safe, clean, positive environment to help you and your family come and enjoy the activities you love the most.

- Guests will be invited to use hand sanitizer stations upon entry and exit of the building. Sanitizing stations will be provided near the main entrances.
What’s your plan if someone attending has tested positive for COVID-19?
We are communicating to event owners, partner organizations, renters, and those who register online, that anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19 is not allowed to enter Horizons Edge until they have been released by their doctor and diagnosed as “recovered.”
Anyone who is presenting symptoms of illness, or answers screening questions upon entry in a way that gives us concern, will not be admitted to Horizons Edge, as a way of protecting every other guest at the venue, and preventing exposures and spread.
Will you be testing players from out of state?
In most states, out of state travel will not occur until a later phase of reopening. At that time, Horizons Edge will work with event organizers to institute standards above and beyond the minimum requirements to promote participant and guest safety.
