Mesquite, NV (2/6/2017)
The Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort is the newest hotel option in Mesquite, NV. Located right off the freeway, Rising Star has great access to everything Mesquite has to offer. In addition, Rising Star has amenities of its own. Amenities at the ranch include a full-size grass field for soccer, football, lacrosse and other field sports. A 30,000-square-foot field house, affectionately called "The Barn", is currently under construction and will open in May 2017.
With UYSA holding its annual RSL Presidents Cup in January and February, a tournament that features 400 teams over three weekends, there was an opportunity to use these amenities. UYSA was able to use the full-size soccer field at both of its events to this point, including hosting the first ever soccer match played on the field. The game was held on January 7th at 8:00am and featured a match up between La Rocs SF-RL and eventual U11 Bronze champions UDA 06B Blue. After the game, UDA head coach Edson Moreno shared his thoughts about the facility, particularly noting the accessibility and visibility of the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort as well as the high quality grass field the facility has.
UYSA CEO Drew Hiatt had this to say about the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort, "UYSA was excited to add the Rising Star hotel and field to the RSL Presidents Cup tournament. The field is in excellent condition with great visibility and access. The unique team based aspect of the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort is also something that will serve the local community and the soccer community for years to come." The team based aspect of the Rising Star is something that is particularly intriguing as they try and establish themselves as the hub for sports events in Mesquite.
With the convenience of every sporting venue and golf course within a 10 minute drive of the Rising Star, the property is a one-of-a-kind sports destination in the United States. The Rising Star offers 210 rooms, many featuring bunk beds and adjoining rooms for parents and chaperones. The property also features ample conference and meeting space, a signature restaurant and arcade. The Ranch is the first hotel in Nevada to feature room service robots. Designed by Savioke in Palo Alto, CA, the robots will be able to wow guests by autonomously delivering an extra pillow, blanket,candy bar, or slice of pizza to any guest room. Rather than give children who are attending sports camps room keys that can easily get lost or confused for a friend's, RFID wristbands will be used to gain room and pool access. These wristbands can also be used at the restaurant to pay for meals.
All the innovation and sports based attractions are sure to drive in coaches, players, and fans as they attempt to get the most out of the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort. While these features attract the most attention, the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort is a fantastic hotel which will meet any guests needs regardless of his or her affiliation with a sports team or not.
In a sign of what the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort strives for in the future, Andre Carrier, COO for Rising Star, had this to say, "Rising Star Sports Ranch is excited to play host to games and visitors from the Utah Youth Soccer Association. We are proud to debut our new soccer field with this sensational event. The Ranch was built to allow athletes and families to make the most of their time at tournaments. We hope Rising Star Ranch can in some ways make its contributions to what is one of the best soccer tournaments in America." In a testament to this hope, UYSA can attest that the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort is an up and coming location in Mesquite with top of the line accommodations for all. UYSA is looking forward to using Rising Star again for its events in February and March as well as subsequent years.
