Chuck began his professional experience in recreational sports with Let’s Play Sports, Inc, as a GM of a small indoor facility in Colorado Springs. He was then tasked to be the Hiring and Training Manager for all of Let’s Play’s locations; a role that for five years brought with it a deep dive into facility operations, including what makes a successful facility and facility manager. Chuck has traveled to facilities all over the U.S. and has led turnaround efforts at several, including a large, multi-sport facility in Virginia Beach, his hometown.
Chuck received his Bachelor’s in Business Administration from James Madison University in 2004. While not an athlete, Chuck is very passionate about what local recreational sport does for the community. You’ll often hear him say, “For that hour that you’re at the facility playing a game, everything else has to go away. You have to be present, fully in the game; nothing else matters in those moments. And that’s something we all need. Great facility leadership provides the ability for those we serve to give their brains rest and their bodies movement. We have an obligation to do that well; to serve our communities the best way we can.”
An avid sailor and dog rescue fanatic, Chuck also received his Commercial Pilots’ License in 2008. He makes his home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, spending some time in Hampton on his boat, “Ketch Ya Later.”
