Thirty Seacoast United staff members headed out to Nike’s world headquarters in Portland, OR from June 25-27th as part of the 2018 Nike Management Retreat. During the three day trip, staff members gathered on the famous campus to reflect on everything that was achieved in 2017/18 and to prepare for the new season. Directors from soccer, baseball, softball, field hockey and lacrosse were all in attendance and it was the perfect opportunity to update everyone on where their respective sport was and were it was heading.
“We have accomplished so much this year, both on and off the field, so the timing felt right”, commented President & CEO Paul Willis. “Our relationship with Nike is very special and the fact that we were able to bring our management team out here is a testament to that.” Willis went on to say, “The campus is unbelievable and the likes of Joe Elsmore, Patrick Gibbs and Emily Kerr made us feel welcome the minute we walked through the door.”
Seacoast United has been a part of Nike for over 22 years. The partnership has evolved over the years, especially with the introduction of field sports at Seacoast United and the famous sporting brand has certainly helped propel Seacoast United to one the most successful youth sports organizations in the country.
