Planner Perspective

In January 2016 the Association of Chief Executives for Sport (ACES) conducted it’s Winter Conference hosted by the Snohomish County Sports Commission. The preparation, attention to detail and professionalism of all aspects of those hosting the event, exceeded expectation! Our membership of sport CEO’s were impressed with the area, the facilities, the organization, the attentive staff and the community as a whole. You certainly will see more consideration of the Snohomish County sports facilities for events in the near future.

Stephen D. Ducoff, Association of Chief Executives for Sport

 

Approximately 22 months ago we began a discussion with Tammy Dunn from the Snohomish County Sports Commission about the possibility of moving our men’s and women’s basketball championship tournament to Everett, Washington.  Throughout the planning process to the event, Tammy, Aaron and the staff at the SCSC have been thorough, efficient, and more importantly, genuinely concerned about our event.  The environment that they helped create along with Everett Community College, sponsors, volunteers, community, and others, made our championships a top quality event for NWAC student-athletes.  No task was too big to work on, nor too small to let fall through the cracks was the attitude demonstrated by the Snohomish County Sports Commission.

The NWAC has two more years left in Everett, Washington and we know we are in good hands because the Snohomish County Sports Commission sincerely embraced our event and the significance it has for our student-athletes and the community.

Marco Azurdia, NWAC Executive Director

 

The Snohomish County Sports Commission was instrumental in the ability of the Harbour Pointe badminton club to host the US Junior Nationals.   Harbour Pointe is a new facility and we were not familiar with Snohomish county at all.  The sports commission helped us establish hotel restaurant and banquet facilities is a very organize method that worked seamlessly with our web page. Without their help we would not have been nearly as organized as we ended up being .  The feedback from the participants has been excellent and we have been awarded another national event this coming spring.
