Adversity is nothing more than an opportunity to succeed and grow!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
The sooner you stop expecting things from others, the sooner you will stop being disappointed!
Be Kind, Be Thankful.. You don’t have to be perfect, just do your best! Words we live by At P2P Sports! While most focus on a business, we have concentrated and believed our efforts are about family, helping others, and simply doing the best we can every day! Transparency. When you make a mistake, own it, and figure out a way to help improve it! Our organization has been through a lot in 30 years of operations! But, nothing could prepare us quite like the spring and summer of 2020! A pandemic! No problem! We achieved what we set out to do, and have enjoyed the most successful spring and summer series in the 30 year history of P2P Sports!
Good things happen to good people! 😊….
March 10, 2020, the state of Colorado sports shut down! The state high school league stopped the girls and boys state playoffs at 8:00 am in the morning. We did the same, and were shut down for 3 months, opening our doors back up on July 2nd!
During this time, we never stopped planning for the future. Revamp and build of a new website, with improved communication tools and enhanced tracing features (per COVID).
As you drive by, you will see a new parking lot on the west-end, 450 spots to be completed in the fall. Additional features less noticeable are the new team rooms and officiating rooms allowing them some comfort and privacy from the court placement prior. In addition, landscaping upgrades and the north side park area has been completed.
In the month of August, we are installing additional scoreboards to now feature full-sized, two per court. With new seating on the horizon, we will be able to host 1200-1500 seating capacity events on our main 2 and 5 courts featuring high school teams from the region.
As we progressed through the month of July, our success was the envy of many of the other organizations in the region. False reporting from a Denver based TV station depicted us not being in compliance with COVID regulations…Which, was obviously false, and predicated by competitors in the region, looking for an edge! During 5 visits during the month of July, we have been in 100% compliance and full cooperation with health departments from the state and local levels here in Larimer County! A special thanks to our staff who did an amazing job, and acknowledged by Shaun May of the Larimer County Health Department!
The experience turned out to be one of the best marketing opportunities we’ve ever faced with positive feedback from teams all over the region and around the country visiting P2P Sports, thanking us for our efforts.
903 teams played in our events in 6 weeks! 2700+ games! The organization and management of safety and procedural was overwhelming, but we achieved success every step of the way!
We’ve written the book on safety procedures for indoor basketball and volleyball events, and our staff should be extremely proud of the adversity they have overcome. We’ve had football organizations, baseball, high school Athletic Directors, and even those owning their own facility in neighboring states call us for advice on how to improve the experience and provide safety to their customers. We were and always willing to oblige with help.
We have never cared, nor will ever worry about what others are doing. We simply focus on who we are, what we do, and success and security have always been there for us.
Where do we go from here? We really don’t need to do anything else to get somewhere! We are already where…. Exactly as we need to be, as we believe in all things happen for a reason. Our organization is thriving, because we have always focused on caring about the kids who play the games we enjoy. The focus of affordability will always be a focus, while all who visit experience the best of amenities in the Event Center, and our programming.
When you focus on a budget, a budget is all you are doing to have! We don’t cut corners, nor should you expect us to. No one wants to be treated like a discount! Our kids deserve the best we can provide for them, while we have continued to keep the prices for our events the same for the past 4 years.
Thank you! Our fall season is shaping up to be once again, another fantastic experience. We are excited to unveil additional plans of expansion, new programs and progress. The one thing that will never change is our care about the people who work for P2P Sports.. the parents who spend time and $$ in youth sports, coaches who sacrifice so much of their time, club directors who are working hard to provide opportunities.. and LASTLY…. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY.. the kids who are playing the game. And loving it the way we did when we were growing up, and simply looking for a place to play!
