Alaska Dome

The Dome is "Revolutionizing Alaskan athletics' and is 'dedicated to promoting health and wellness of all Alaskans by providing recreational activities year round in a safe, clean, and inviting state-of-the-art indoor facility." It has five core values that "represent the combination of emotional, intellectual, and moral qualities that distinguish both an individual's and an organization's character," which are respect, integrity, discipline, courage, and generosity.

The Dome, located at 6501 Changepoint Drive in Anchorage, is 601 feet long, 290 feet wide, and 87.5 feet tall, and is suitable for any field or turf sport, including soccer, baseball, softball, footballs, rugby, lacrosse, and "even" kickball.
