Sports and other social activities form an important aspect of every community’s wellbeing. These aspects of the society usually require proactive enhancement and developmentso that the community can ensure that all its membersparticipate and benefit from them(BGCPPR 1).Towards improving the standards of the facilities within the Colorado area, the El Pomar foundation commissioned my services so that I could survey two of their facilities. The findings of the survey will help in the future administration and the maintenance of service standards. Through the survey, the foundation will also get baseline data, which will help with the audit of the sports and recreational facilities in the area(El Pomar1).
The aims of the audit include improving the capacity of the foundationin providing access to recreation/sports information. The most important information to be collected and communicated to the users of the facilities includes contact information andthe condition of the facilities. The other information to be provided, following the information collected, will include the location of the centers, the current and the future usage of the facilities and levels of access – to residents and the visitors of the area. Through the survey, the foundation will identify areas that require development and that will help in the channeling of facility improvement in the future. The survey tour will cover two El Pomar facilities at the Colorado area, namely,the El Pomaryouth sports park and the E.A.TuttClub (BGCPPR1). Following the review of the two facilities, this paper will present a summary of the tour of the centers and discuss the good design. It will also expose poor design features, discuss main lessons learnt through the tour, and note the areas to be changed immediately(El Pomar 1).
Summary of the tour
El Pomaryouth sports park
The first facility covered by the survey tour was the El Pomar sports center, which has been in operation for about 13 years. The facility provides mind and body recreational services to the members of the colleges in the area, athletes, and members of the community. The facility is located at 2212 Executive circle, Colorado Springs (El Pomar 1).
The website of the El Pomar youth Sports Park is given below:
The website of the facility offers information on the people working at the facility, the facilities available at the center, the policies and the scheduling of the facility, the facility’s outreach as well as the news and the events of the facility. The website also offers information on the sponsors and the partners of the facility, as well as directions to visitors and contact information – for visitors and those making inquiries over the Internet (El Pomar 1).
The manager (operations director) in charge of the facility is Vicki Martin. The operations director has served at the office since 2002, working as the contact person – responsible for games, tournaments, practice scheduling and scrimmage.Sheworks directly with leagues, clubs, parents, coaches and the youths that use the park. She is also responsible for the handling of invoices, accounts receivables, and book keeping (El Pomar1).
The executive manager of the facility is Eric Parthen, who took office in July 2013. Mr.Parthen is a well-established leader and officer, holding more than 17 years of leadership at similar or higher executive posts (El Pomar1).The E.A.TuttClub is a facility that offers recreation and learning facilities. The facilityoffersboth boys and girls, a fun and relaxing environment for learning, at the huge library, where members can learn all that they want.At the recreation room, the facility offers fooseball, house pool, poly pong tables, carpet ball and air hockey facilities. Other facilities at the center include a computer lab, an art room, a gymnasium and an open play ground with baseball and basketball fields, among other recreational grounds(BGCPPR 1).The facility is located at 1455 South Chelton Rd.

Good designs at the two facilities
El Pomar youth sports park
The Softball/ Baseball fields at the facilities are Olympic standards, capable of handling the sporting activities of younger and older teams (fig. 1-5). The common fence perimeter of the facility starts at 210 feet up to 380 feet. Like other world-class fields, the fields at the facility offer a distance between 60 and 70 feet. This standard is highly acknowledgeable, mainly because the typical distance between the bases for a standard softball field is 60 feet. The pitchers mounds of the fields at the facility are of a standard size, because the distance between the Pitchers Mound and the Home plate accounted for the needs of different groups. The measure of the adult field ranges between the standard dimensions of 35 to 53 feet, and in other cases ranging from 54 to 60 feet.Further, the fields are designed to meet the needs of fast pitch playing, which ranges between 35 and 40 feet (El Pomar1).
