Sports City USA: 5 of the Best Sports Events & Attractions in Frisco, TX

As we head into Spring, it’s becoming that time of year where we turn off the heaters and start throwing heaters. No matter if it’s baseball, gymnastics, golf, biking, or just spending time outdoors, Frisco, Texas is a prime destination for athletes and fans alike. The city has earned its title as Sports City USA not just through its wealth of athletic facilities and venues, but also its packed calendar of events. Here are five of the best sports events and attractions in Frisco, Texas that you don’t want to miss.

The Frisco College Baseball Classic

The annual Frisco College Baseball Classic is the premiere collegiate baseball tournament outside of the College World Series. Each tournament consists of a three-day doubleheader featuring four of the country’s best teams competing for the top prize. This year, the tournament will take place March 1-3 and the lineup will include Arizona, Alabama, Indiana, and Dallas Baptist—so there’s still time to pre-order those foam fingers! 

Riders Field is the home of the tournament and happens to boast one of the most unique viewing experiences of any ballpark in the world. Along the top of the right field wall runs the Lazy River, an over 3,000-square-foot river where fans can watch the game from. Doing the wave suddenly got a lot more literal.  

Tickets to the tournament can be purchased on the official Frisco College Baseball Classic website.

The WOGA Classic and Valeri Liukin Invitational

Every year, Frisco hosts the WOGA Classic and Valeri Liukin Invitational, events that assemble thousands of competitors from 10 different countries to compete in men's and women’s gymnastics. Among the events’ highlights will be the National Qualifer for Women’s Gymnastics and the Saturday night competitions for men's and women’s Elite. In addition, there’s also the highly anticipated Naval, Air Force, and West Point Academies Championship.   

Co-founded by Olympic champion, Valeri Liukin, and World Sports Acrobatic Champion, Yevgeny Marchenko, putting on competitions is only the beginning of what WOGA does. It also happens to be a training institute for gymnasts of all levels, including 2022 World Champion, Skye Blakely.  

This year’s events will take place in the Ford Center at the Dallas Cowboys’ personal headquarters, The Star. Whether you’re an athlete looking to throw your hat in the ring—still ring, in this case—or you just want to witness a world-class gymnastic competition, sign-up and tickets are available on WOGA’s website.

The Modern Home of Golf

If you’re looking for a relaxing, but still competitive way to enjoy a beautiful day, it doesn’t get much better than a round of golf. Frisco is home to a wide variety of both public and championship courses, but there are a couple of golf destinations that stand out above the rest.  

The first is the Omni PGA Frisco Resort, dubbed the “New Home of Modern Golf,” which has not one 18-hole championship course, but two, as well as a 10-hole par-3 course. If you’re wondering what’s so modern about it, it has an adults-only rooftop infinity pool, a full-service spa, and a two-acre putting course called The Dance Floor. You don’t even have to be a golfer to lose track of time at the Omni.  

You’d think one massive golf resort would be enough, but Frisco has another with The Westin Stone Briar Golf Resort. Like the Omni, the Westin Stone Briar features two championship courses, as well as a Junior Gold Program for all the future golfers of America. For the non-golfers, the recently renovated resort has a pool area with a water slide, private cabanas, and a Topgolf Swing Suite.  

biking trails frisco

Cyclist Biking Trails

There are those who bike for sport, those who bike for exercise, and those who bike for meditation. Whichever category you fall into, you’ll be pleased to find out that there are more than 70 miles of trails in Frisco available to amateur and advanced cyclists alike.  

Among the most popular trails in the city are Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt, Beaver’s Bend Trail, and Caddo Trail. These trails are more than just dirt paths. They’re specially designed with the cycler in mind, as some feature historic architecture, public art, and even repair stations. If you’re looking for a more exciting ride, you may want to check out the Frisco Mountain Bike Trail at Northwest Community Park, since it includes some jumps and steep inclines. Just remember to wear your helmet, since they’re required! 

Not everyone got around to learning how to ride a bike, but that’s okay, because many of the trails allow both cyclists and hikers. One of the best hiking trails if you’re looking to get out-outdoors is the Big Bluestem Trail at Grand Park. The path itself is unpaved and you may even see some rabbits, turkeys, or deer.   

frisco parks and gardens

Specialty Parks and Gardens

Maybe you want to experience the outdoors in a way that’s more relaxing and less, well, sweaty. If so, Frisco’s many parks and gardens are the place for you.  

HALL Park, in particular, is a cultural hub of gardens, public art, and play areas. Within this bustling community is the Texas Sculpture Garden, which can claim to be the largest private collection of contemporary sculpture ever made available to the public. We know what you’re thinking. If there are so many sculptures, you might not know where to start. Thankfully, the park provides a self-guided audio tour with its very own app. Handy! 

Looking to the future, one of HALL Park’s most anticipated attractions is Kaleidoscope Park, which is set to open in June 2024. The park plans to earn its name by featuring art, architecture, and lush gardens in a grand assortment of shapes and colors. Of course, a dog park will also be included, because everything’s better with dogs.  

Other than HALL Park, there’s the very popular Hope Park, which, along with all the usual amenities, prides itself on being all-inclusive to people with disabilities. And we can’t forget about Limestone Quarry Park, perfect for hosting BBQs and maybe even seeing some wildlife.  

Frisco isn't Called Sports City USA for Nothing

With NCAA baseball tournaments, gymnastic competitions with top-talent from all over the world, elegant golf resorts, and dozens of quality bike trails, it’s easy to see why Frisco, Texas proudly answers to Sports City USA.  

And after you’ve taken in a game or mastered a few trails, there are plenty of high-end parks and gardens to help wind down before fully decompressing at one of Frisco’s many hotels.  

Then the best part: you wake up and do it all over again.
