Scott McClelland, co-owner of PickUp USA Fitness, has always enjoyed looking for new business opportunities and finding special ways to spend time with his family.

These days, he has been busy with both activities.

“I am an attorney with the north-central Indiana firm of Butcher, Ball, Lowry, McMahan & McClelland LLP,” McClelland says. “I have practiced law for nearly 20 years and served as a deputy prosecuting attorney in Howard County for 16 years. I am married to my wife, Stephanie, who co-owns PickUp USA Fitness, and we have three children, Samantha, 15,  Mitchell, 14, and Alex, 12. I have assisted small businesses in my role as an attorney, and have always kept an open mind for interesting business models.”

McClelland says PickUp USA Fitness is a great business franchise.

“Stephanie and I have spent the past 10 years traveling around central Indiana watching our children involved in sporting activities, so we are familiar with the current popularity of youth sports,” McClelland says. “PickUp USA Fitness in Noblesville will allow our children an opportunity for hands-on learning of running a family business.”

McClelland notes that PickUp USA Fitness is an 18,000-square-foot facility with a 40’ ceiling.

“We have two full-court, NBA-size courts installed by Sport Court and Browning Chapman,” he says. “We also have an additional half-court basketball court and an indoor netball court installed by local netball court installers near me. Our core concept with PickUp USA Fitness is that we provide ‘A Better Way to Play.’ Beginning at 6 p.m. every weekday,  you can play in refereed pickup basketball games.”

McClelland is looking forward to welcoming new members.

“We tell people to come in, log in to our Casey queue system, find out what team you are on, grab the appropriate color jersey and get in the game,” he says. “The games go for 10 minutes, and they are timed and scored in live time on our new scoreboards. The winners stay, and losing players can choose to get back in the Casey queue, or go get in a workout, or relax. Then they can hop back in later.”

The courts are also used for youth training and practice at 5 p.m. during the week.

“The youth development-league teams play their games on Saturdays,” McClelland says. “The fall league is winding down but people can sign up by Christmas for the winter league. We will also have kids camps over the Christmas holidays. We also use the courts for a men’s league on Wednesday nights. We are developing a women’s league and an over-50, half-court men’s league. We encourage people to contact us if they are interested.”

The courts are also rented when they are not being used after 10 p.m on weeknights, and on Sunday afternoons.

“We tell people to call us if you are interested in a regular court rental for you and your group,” McClelland says. “Interestingly, in my first job out of Butler University in 1995, I worked in the commercial lending department of a bank, and my first assignment was to find a gym for the men in the department to have a regular weekly pickup game. I’ve been looking for gyms ever since. Now my family and I have one, and it is a great one.”

McClelland notes that PickUp USA Fitness has a brand-new, state-of-the-art, 4,000-square-foot weight and cardio room.

“We have top-level stuff that folks will not find in even slightly dated gyms,” McClelland says.

McClelland adds that people in the community have been excited about the opening of PickUp USA Fitness.

“Word is getting out and we love the environment going into work every day,” McClelland says, adding that the following video link, produced by the company franchiser, is aimed at other potential franchisees:
