If you love sports, you live in the right place, and you are going to love this issue. I have lived in Lake County most of my life and until just recently, I had no idea that there were so many opportunities to get involved in local sports activities, or that there are so many opportunities to watch sporting events.
Lake County is home to a multitude of facilities, such as Florida’s largest sand volleyball complex in Tavares, championship-level disc golf courses, and the National Training Center in Clermont.
With the help of Steven Clenney, Lake County’s sports development and tourism coordinator, this month we’re providing a closer look at some of the local sports facilities, as well as some of the exciting sporting events coming this year.
That’s not all—we also have engaged several local sports professionals for advice on how to improve your game. For example, we share insight from Brady Singer, the Florida Gators’ star pitcher and the projected top pick in the upcoming Major League Baseball draft. Did you know he was born and raised right here in Lake County? I have to be honest, we have the advantage on the inside scoop, as Brady’s mother, Jacquelyn Singer, is a member of the Akers Media Group team.
Also, be sure to look for the advertisements that list dates and times of city industrial leagues and opportunities to get involved. Even if you don’t play, sponsoring a local team is a great way to give back and promote your business while encouraging a healthy community.
I hope you enjoy this month’s issue and even learn something new. Our team, particularly one of our longtime, multi-award-winning writers, James Combs, has worked really hard to assemble this guide about Lake County sports. He has been covering topics in Healthy Living for almost 10 years and, as always, has over-delivered.
Until next month,
