Millions of kids participate in youth sports across the country each year and that often means traveling to out-of-state tournaments, which can be a logistical monstrous summer of its own for many parents, coaches and team moms. To tackle that problem, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex recently developed an innovative solution-oriented program to make nationwide youth sports travel easier for families.
Disney Sports Solutions leads off with pre-event fundraising assistance, including established programs to leverage Disney and its partners such as ESPN the Magazine and Enterprise. On-site itinerary assistance is available at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Welcome Center so teams can make the most of their trip to Walt Disney World Resort, and a business lounge opening later this month allows parents to stay connected while on the road.
Convenience is the name of the game, too. High quality boxed lunches, pizza, group snacks and stocked coolers can be delivered to your team at Disney’s 255-acre sports complex. Coaches, if you’re tired of lugging your team’s bags to the field, equipment drop off might seem like you’ve arrived at your own New Fantasyland. Disney Sports Solutions will take your equipment at the drop off location and have it delivered to your field of play.
Need help capturing your little star’s big moment? A team of photographers can take hi-res pictures of athletes during games, and parents can watch game highlights on a dedicated channel in their Walt Disney World Resort hotel room. Debuting this summer, the complex will bring the big-time environment of ESPN to the guests like never before with its on-site show, ESPN Wide World of Sports Live.
