“The EVERYBODY, Healthy Body project is exactly the kind of project that sets one community apart from another. A community backed project that has the potential to impact the population at large (as opposed to one narrow interest group or another). In addition to the health and education benefits, the potential economic impact cannot be understated. As a parent of two youth athletes I have spent many thousands of dollars on gas, food, entertainment, and lodging in communities surrounding our own that aren’t nearly as unique. ”

Pat Gillick, Sr Advisor to Pres & GM

“The objective of a recreational sports facility is not to keep track of the wins and losses. Rather, it serves to help build a stronger, healthier and safer community. Studies have confirmed that communities with a recreational sports facility provide youth with the opportunity to develop better social skills since the facility becomes a hub of activity, a gathering place where kids are able to empower, inspire and motivate one another.”
