HUGE thanks to the Bartz Family, TCOS & our Vortex/A’s Board, Coaches, Players & Families for making this possible!
We are truly grateful to be one of the few (if not only) club programs in the metro area that has their own indoor facility AND outdoor field complex (Loretto Athletic Complex) all to ourselves.
We utilize fields in the central and western metro, but we are the only elite club to have a long term agreement on home fields, The Loretto Athletic Complex (300 Lorenz Street Loretto, MN 55357). The Minnesota Vortex & A's program partnered with the City of Loretto in 2021 on a 10-year agreeement to make these our home fields and work together to make some monumental improvements. Some improvements in Spring of 2021 were: turning Phil Tabery field (former soccer field) into a softball field with a permanent 200' fence, renovating the concession building and bleachers and finishing them off with A's and Vortex colors, and completing the construction of a warm up area complete with batting tunnels and bullpen area. Next on the to-do list is: improve 6 dugouts across all 3 fields, replace asphalt surfaces, make lighting improvements, and other smaller tasks to make our home complex a pristine and wonderful place to play in the Western Metro.

TCOS and Loretto Athletic Complex are our own but we also rent facilities and fields in Plymouth, Wayzata, Minnetonka, Chanhassen, Edina and Bloomington to cover all needs and to serve our players all over the metro.
