Comments: “The main reason we put this business together is to cater for growing kids’ sports on the island. But, we wanted to provide cheaper prices for local clubs and organizations and businesses, for example. We will beat any other prices, including Naples. We also sponsor teams to support the community. ” — Adam Koszo and Holly Noel
