|In the world of amateur athletics, the Greater Kokomo-area is a renowned leader in the Midwest. When it comes to hosting major athletic tournaments and events, Kokomo and Howard County is a go-to region for organizations such as the National Softball Association, Amateur Softball Association, Indiana High School Athletic Association, Cal Ripken Baseball, the American Legion, All-American Soapbox Derby and the Indiana State U.S. Bowling Congress. Whether a group needs a 3,000-seat baseball facility, a 5,000-seat gymnasium or a 5-field diamond softball complex, Kokomo is the place to be. And with five golf courses, dozens of public tennis courts, a state-of-the-art skateboard park, the Wildcat Creek, and two Cal Ripken regional tournament rated parks, the sky is the limit. And coming in 2014 is a new, 32-field, tournament ready soccer complex.
The Greater Kokomo Visitors Bureau and the Greater Kokomo Sports Authority is a leader in working hand-in-hand with local government and business leaders, so the possibilities are endless on the events that could be hosted in Howard County. The City of Firsts was named the 2011 Indiana Community of the Year, and we are ready to show the sports community why.
