We miss sports. Whether we miss playing or cheering, following a favorite team, hanging out with friends to watch a game, or gathering with friends for a pick-up game… we miss the community, the energy, the cadence of sports. We’ve been isolated for more than a year with delivery groceries and Amazon packages. We’ve been telecommuting and ordering take-out. Our grandparents have mastered Zoom! We’re alone (together).
Isolation is a hallmark sign of depression and our country is dealing with this plague as deeply as we’re fighting COVID. We were made for community. Real community. Face-to-face community. Being with other people helps combat depression. Like many businesses, nZone found a way to reopen following CDC guidelines to offer the public a safe way to return to our facility.
nZone offers many options for families to safely test the waters. Why? Because building community is a core value. nZone is owned and operated by New Life Christian Church. Did you know that? NLCC doesn’t have church in the nZone; the nZone is the outreach arm of the church.
nZone was designed for community. We continue to thoughtfully redesign our programs to provide you with a safe choice in the midst of everything. All small groups (youth and fitness) are capped at 10. Our court/field usage is capped at 25. We follow spectator limits, take temperatures, and check-in everyone. These all follow current state mandates. We are energized by the passion you bring to us when you have the chance to participate and we’re delighted to give you back some normalcy in the face of so much that’s extraordinary.
We were the first in the community to bring back sports. Our Youth Flag Football season finished up this past weekend with Championship games. These kids, and their coaches, had a blast. You can see some of the photos on social here. And we returned a limited version of Future FamersFuture Famers Returns for our littlest nZoners to learn character through sports.
Next up, Adult Basketball. For everyone whose enjoyed a great pick-up game or dropped into the nZone to shoot around, it’s time to join in league play. Our courts are booked solid through June and we had our last Drop-In Night on Sunday. Satisfy the urge to play with a guaranteed 8 games plus championship weekend.
nZone leads the industry in COVID Compliance and was voted 2020 Parent Pick for Best Gym & Fitness. Here you can safely plug back into community and be energized by the sound of squeaking sneakers on the court.
Why now? Our country, our community is safely progressing through recovery with the reopening of public schools. It’s time to try. It’s time to start. We miss sports and we know you do, too. So, grab a few friends to form a team or even sign up as a free agent and we’ll fill up teams for optimal play. It’s time to re-emerge from your home and plug back into community. Through sports. Through basketball.
It’s time to stop missing sports!
