PPPA – WEEKLY EMAIL BLAST
In this week's blast:
We have stated this before, so it should not be necessary to repeat it. Players are NOT allowed to teach for profit on public courts without a VALID permit issued by Colorado Springs Parks & Recreation for courts within the City like MVP or Venezia or a permit issued by El Paso County Parks & Recreation for the Bear Creek Park facility. It falls on every player to call out these violations and report offenders to the applicable Parks & Rec office. If you are teaching lessons on public courts and have not applied for a permit we ask that you please abide by the policies and get a permit. The funds for these permits are utilized to support court up keep, replacing nets, and net straps. If you have any questions please contact the Parks and Rec offices either at Colorado Springs or El Paso County.
