Most people are surprised when they find out Beach City Sports is the result of one man’s dream, and is run by a hard-working team of just TWO people behind-the-scenes. The concept of Beach City Sports first started when Sports enthusiasts Sam Jreisat and Brooke Bouloy met each other while participating in various sporting events in Orange County.
A little about Sam…
Sam founded & now serves as the Director of Operations for Beach City Sports where he can continue to foster his passion for the healing nature of sports that he discovered as a youth. As a teenager, Sam was very overweight until he discovered that participation in sports helped him lose nearly 100 pounds in a one-year period of time. Previously a contractor by trade in the Chicago area, Sam moved to Southern California in 2006 to enjoy the weather and start a new chapter in his life. He quickly gravitated to the sports world of Huntington Beach to expand his circle of friends and continue his commitment to a lifetime of fitness and exercise.
A little about Brooke…
Brooke moved to Southern California from Albuquerque, N.M., in 2006 to start her career after college. For five years, Brooke has worked as Director of Sales for International Commodity Distributors (A dried fruit, nut & snacks packaging company) which she balances seamlessly with her role of Marketing & Event Coordinator at Beach City Sports.
Though coming from different cities & backgrounds, Sam and Brooke were both drawn to the sands of Huntington Beach. It was there that the duo met and began sharing their passion for healthy living, sports, and networking – three elements they truly believe are the building blocks for an abundant lifestyle.
Founded in September of 2011, Beach City Sports has a three-pronged approach:
1st Facilitate Adult Sports on the beach & around Orange County
2nd Support local and small businesses through VIP membership card*
3rd Offer networking opportunities for members to help them grow professionally and personally through an extensive social calendar.
Beach City Sports has experienced tremendous growth in its first year of operation, branching out organically from a great group of positive people with similar on core values. Sam, Brooke, and their team are committed to continue the growth by adding Beach City Sports and Social activities for its members. “It’s the law of attraction at work,” says Brooke. “Surround yourself with people who share a similar ambition, and have the drive to be successful, and together you will have nowhere to go but UP.”
