A partnership of long-time customers, the new group purchased the facility because they see the benefit of sports in their own lives and the lives of their children. Says CEO, Steve Werner, “We wanted to take all of the good things the previous owners have developed to the next level. The Dreamsports family is a tight-knit group that not only plays together, but socializes together as well.”
Continues Werner, “As General Manager, it is my goal to deliver a fun environment for you and your kids to play and grow in both your athletic abilities as well as socially… Our promise to you is to keep the things you have always valued in your experience at Dreamsports, such as our recreational programs, the cleanliness and family-friendly nature of the facility and the involvement of the management team in everything that we do.”
Previous owner, Bob Boucher, remains part owner and will run the sports programming at the facility. Says Boucher, “I am very excited about the new programs we are bringing to the facility; these are things I have wanted to add for many years. Our new management team’s energy and creativity will truly enhance our customers’ experience.” In conjunction with Werner and the new management team, Boucher adds, that plans are to “take Dreamsports to the next level.”
One of the main priorities of the new owners is providing a safe, family-friendly environment for both children and adults to enjoy sports at all levels. One of the changes that is scheduled over the next several months is the expansion of the current security systems with surveillance ability. In addition, Dreamsports will be integrating more use of technology into its current system, providing a better experience for the families who use the facility, including a new, more user-friendly Website, where online registration and payments can be conveniently managed. Customers should expect to see these changes over the coming weeks.
Werner intends to expand the services that the Dreamsports facility offers. Currently, soccer, lacrosse, and in-line hockey, as well as floor-ball and deck hockey, are offered. Soon, other activities will be introduced for both youths and adults. With the addition of track-out camps and new drop-in hours for pick-up style games, the new owners hope to enhance the experience of all age groups as they participate in and grow through sports.
