At Chesapeake Sports Park, guests of all skill levels negotiate a range of exciting, obstacle-spattered fields. At the start of matches, players lead daring charges through dense vegetation on the woodsball course or overtake a wall on an urban field as they cover an opponent in a wild spray that forges an abstract modernist painting. For a quick adrenaline boost, strategically placed tubes line the grassy hyperball field, making ideal conditions for fast-paced warfare. A field-paint-only facility, Chesapeake Sports Park's onsite pro shop stocks bags of paintballs and equipment from brands such as Tippmann, Bob Long, and Luxe. Committed to a safe experience, Chesapeake Sports Park starts new players off with a safety training and requires full-face goggles with ear protection to be worn at all times. In addition to general public play, the facility welcomes birthday parties, group outings, and other private events.
With the help of local sponsors and volunteers, The Green Foundation upholds its mission to preserve and publicize the natural beauty of Newport News with the Dig-In Earth Day 5K race. Families, competitive runners, and escaped zoo animals embark on the chip-timed 5K contest and the lighter, 1-mile fun run from the City Center fountain. A post-race party boasts a DJ set, raffles, and prize giveaways.
Sponsors in addition to The Green Foundation include I Am Fitness, an organization that seeks to cultivate health and inspire adventure among Newport News residents through a variety of athletic events.
Chesapeake Bay Sailing Adventures charters voyages marked by breathtaking ocean sunsets, wind-filled sails, and the laughter of families and friends. Passengers ring in anniversaries and birthdays upon a spacious 39-foot vessel, making toasts in the cozy, comfortable cabin replete with comfortable couches and a full kitchen. Guests relax under the safe custody of a skilled captain and crew, or they can opt to learn how to guide the vessel through the tides or master the complicated jargon and intricate secret handshakes of maritime workers. During each half-day, full-day, or sunset voyage, guests munch on complimentary snacks and soft drinks or sip their own brought-along beverages.
