Our focus is very simple.
2. First-class Event Center with all games hosted at P2P Sports. We do not use alternative sites. When we are sold out, we don't take additional teams to build a bigger event. Why travel to play at a junior high or high school that's worse than the one you live across the street from in your own home town? We understand this, and stay focused on full-sized, clean, and premier courts.
3. Affordable. Free parking, Free WIFI, and for those of you who travel around the country and see the ludicrous spectator admission rates, we are ONLY $6.00/adult, $5.00/senior and $2.00/high school students and free for junior high and below.
4. We do not promote the false-hype of college exposure. Teams benefit playing here, using our Live-Stream recordings to share with college coaches, and for those events where we do have college coaches in attendance, we provide the facts and realness of who is in attendance.
5. We schedule all games by hand. Less time in the gym, more time for your families to enjoy more than just the game.
6. We DO NOT run our own club teams. You play in an unbiased environment.
7. Our sports lounge features a full service grab-n-go concessions, Dunkin Restaurant, leather couch seating, table top, counter top seating, 7 big screen TV's, north and south patio's, and much much more on the outside (sand volleyball courts, outdoor basketball courts, beach, boat launch, playground, walking path around a lake and only 3 minute walk from the golf course)
8. Teams traveling regionally the night before, receive free practice time (1 hour) at the Event Center.
9. Head coach and assistant coaches eat free at our restaurant partners during events.
Lastly, and most importantly.
P2P Sports has never, nor will ever be about the $$. We care about you, your family and your child. Everything we provide is about first-class amenities at the most affordable prices we are able to provide and survive financially is our focus. We are located on a golf-course community, safety, and unique to what you see in the world of travel court-sport destinations.
Additional considerations below.
SAFETY AND SPORTSMANSHIP IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF WHAT WE DO
Our policies are set to help provide a safe environment. We start every game with a coach/officials pre-game meeting, and then a pre-game good luck line (hand shakes). We set the tone from the beginning that sportsmanship is the single most important part of the game. Coaches, officials, and parents are held to a high standard of decorum and when violated, we have to hold accountability.
These policies have been established with advice/meetings with college athletic directors, high school athletic directors, coaches, and parents. In addition, 32 years of event management experience, and professionals in the educational field have a big part of shaping our programs. Thank you!
P2P Sports believe we provide a venue for all to exhibit sportsmanship. We also believe that parents, and the coaches directly involved in the lives of children are responsible for teaching sportsmanship.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY FOR MY VOICE TO BE HEARD, AND OFFER HELP/SUGGESTIONS?
Politely. Golden Rule applies. Call our office, or submit an inquiry form (available at the front desk). We respond to respect, and kindness, and how you would like to be addressed at your work or home, and how you are teaching your own children how to resolve conflict and disagreements. Approach in a manner and with suggestions that help improve the opportunities for everyone.
Everyone wishes it will be free. Of course! We get it. As all of us become better educated about youth club sports, spectator admission has existed for 30 years. P2P Sports is proud to be the most affordable youth sports organization in the country for spectator admission! (YES, that’s true!)
No tax dollars are used to build, maintain and operate the Event Center.
It's an unappreciated profession and parents are the #1 reason officials quit supporting youth sports. We can either work together, or continue to be part of the problem. Without officials, youth sports don't exist.
All are hired and managed by Bruce Bird and Lloyd Martinez, both CHSAA board certified officials for the state of Colorado.
Officials are hired after an approved background check, and training completed.
Officials are hired based on judgment. They are required to show up on time, enforce the state high school league decorum, and rules.
Officials are managed by P2P Sports based on their communication, respect for the game, parents, coaches, and players.
BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION AND NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM
A great way for individuals to help improve the game, and show people how much you know about the game/officiating is to become an official! If interested, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we are helpful in providing the background check process, educational classes, and certification to become an official in youth and high school basketball. A great part-time opportunity allows you to take your knowledge of the game to another level!
450+ parking spots are available, but that is still not enough to accommodate our customer base.
If you need a ride to and from your car, we provide assistance. Call our office, 970.800.3035, or stop at the front desk.
All parking is FREE
SCORER’S TABLE OPERATIONS
As of 9/1/19, P2P Sports has made the commitment to provide scorer’s table operations services. This is a paid service we commit to in helping ensure parents aren't ask to help provide this service.
The efforts are ongoing in obtaining the number of independent contractors to manage this huge task.
1 per court is assigned to manage the clock, and the books for teams. No parent volunteers are required
*Disclaimer is at times, staff might be short in availability and if so, we politely ask for assistance from teams participating.
HISTORY OF P2P SPORTS AND THE EVENT CENTER
30 years running events. P2P Sports Event Center opened 2/17, privately funded and owned.
9000+ games per year are hosted on location. In ’19, 19 state were represented with college, high school and youth teams visiting.
400,000+ people walked through the doors in ’19. Built on 4.2 acres, the Event Center features 53,000 square feet, 6 high school regulation volleyball, basketball courts, 12 pickleball courts, and 10,000 square feet of sports lounge amenities.
Outdoor amenities currently being finalized/built include a walking path around the lake, outdoor sand volleyball courts, outdoor basketball courts, playground, beach, and boat launch. This will be available in the spring of ’20.
We are FAMILY-DESTINATION, and when you visit P2P Sports, it’s more than just what happens on the courts.
Future expansion is currently being planned.
NO BALLS ARE ALLOWED TO BE BROUGHT IN BY SPECTATORS/PLAYERS/ANYONE DURING GAMES
We have implemented this rule since the opening of the Event Center in 2/17. We mirror the expectations at high school and college games.
While coaching, the coaches deserve the respect of being able to focus on their team during time-outs, half-times, before and after games without people going on the court and shooting/dribbling.
In addition, expensive décor, pictures, etc., exist in the Event Center, and to protect these items, we prohibit.
Visitor safety is paramount, and with balls in the Event Center, people will play “catch”, “pass”, etc., and create an unsafe environment for everyone.
NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED IN THE EVENT CENTER
Per our contractual agreement with outside vendors in the Event Center.
We provide a full-service, grab-n-go food court, with a variety of food choices. From Pizza Ranch, Inta-Juice, Chick Fil-A, Dunkin with their selective menu items, and a variety of healthy choices, visitors can purchase on location.
When you price the concessions, they are comparable as any place you visit in the region.
All areas of the Event Center, with the exception of rest room facilities are monitored and recorded 24/7. It provides an environment of accountability and review. We no longer have to review “he-said/she-said”, rather, simply review with the recordings or live feed to improve the environment and address concerns.
Pay-Per-View is available for watching sporting events. While we would love to provide this service for free the cost to install, and maintain the WIFI network, camera’s, live-stream feed and hosting companies to manage doesn’t provide this luxury.
Public WIFI is always FREE
WHO WORKS AT P2P SPORTS
Many of our staff are high school students (exploring their first real job in the world), college students (paying their way through their education), high school coaches, parents in the community, teachers, and business professionals in the region.
In 9000+ games in 2019, P2P Sports NEVER changed a schedule based on their own needs. 100% of the schedule is determined by the teams participating, their locations, grade levels and individual events. Changes occur when a team is unable to play, drops out, or circumstances beyond our control.
We schedule week to week in our league play, allowing teams to move up and down based on their results.
We schedule for tournament play 1 week to 10 days out from the event.
DOES POWER 2 PLAY SPORTS HOST THEIR OWN TEAMS?
No, we do not. We provide the leagues and tournaments for teams to play, and provide an unbiased environment for teams to visit and compete. You never compete against the "home team".
I'M LOOKING FOR A TEAM
P2P Sports provides assistance to families looking for a team for their children. From local to regional, our knowledge of teams provides help for parents to avoid experiences less than favorable.
