BREMERTON, WA – Olympic Sports Center, LLC is pleased to announce that the City of Bremerton has unanimously approved the transfer of management of the Olympic Indoor Center at Pendergast Park from the Olympic Soccer and Sports Center ownership group to Olympic Sports Center, LLC. Along with the transfer, a series of changes to the facility, its programs, and branding are already underway.
The new management team, operating under the name Olympic Sports Center (“OSC” or “The Center”) to represent the diverse nature of sports practiced and played at the facility, wasted no time in appointing seasoned facility operator, John Bales, as the new General Manager. John has a strong background in retail and customer service and was the General Manager responsible for the operational turnaround at The Zone Sportsplex in Poulsbo prior to its sale. John and his team have been hard at work implementing new systems, training staff, team building, and creating an environment that is safe and fun for the community.
“John is doing an amazing job of building a team environment and culture while integrating existing staff with new team members,” stated Bill Wright, Managing Partner of OSC. “Change can be intimidating for people, but with John’s easy manner and nurturing way, he is quickly gaining the trust and respect of the team and the prior team members are really stepping up to the challenge.”
Mr. Wright continued, “We are excited about the facility changes planned and we believe the new facility management software, with online access and administration for members, will increase our efficiency and provide for a better user experience for our members. We appreciate everyone’s patience during the transition, and we are excited and feel blessed to have the opportunity to be building upon the incredible accomplishment of the prior ownership and take The Center to a new level that we, the community, have always envisioned.”
To kick off its community involvement, The Center is hosting a Spring Fling Soccer Camp during the Spring Break of March 31 – April 4, 2014. The camp is for boys and girls ages 7 – 14 and will feature soccer skills training by local soccer coaching standout Michael Donne. Parents can choose from half to full day camp and may choose any number of days or the entire week. In addition to soccer skills, campers will learn new life skills, such as teamwork and sportsmanship, and make new friends. Contact The Center for more information and pricing or visit the website.
