Frozen Ropes Closes its Doors

Chantilly's youth will need to find a new facility to practice baseball.

Local baseball training center, , closed for business on Sunday, April 3.

The owner, Craig Koch, said that he was forced to shut down due to high rent in a weak economy.  He tried to negotiate with the landlord, Washington Real Estate Investment Trust, but was unsuccessful. 

There are no plans for Frozen Ropes to re-open in the future, but Koch said he has had a great three and half years working with the kids.  He mentioned that it will be sad not being able to see the kids grow up and increase their baseball skills. 

"We appreciate all our customers and had a great time teaching baseball to kids," said Koch.

We are sad to hear that Frozen Ropes is closed. My 2 oldest daughters enjoyed the summer softball camp they provide and it was an amazing experience for them both. Even though it is closing, there will still be an opportunity for baseball and softball players to work out and train in Chantilly. The nZone (www.thenzone.com), opening in August, will offer indoor facilities for baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, football and many other sports to use.
