Hi, I am Andrew Lance! Recreation has been my passion since an early age, especially sports, but I realized early on that I would not grow up to be a professional athlete. Instead, I decided to stick with what I loved, and see the enjoyment others get from being active, playing, and learning. Currently I am the Parks and Recreation Manager for the City of Lexington, NC. I am a Certified Parks and Recreation Professional (CPRP), and a Certified Pool/Spa Operator (CPO).

I have extensive experience with recreational facilities, both the management of leagues, tournaments, and programs, as well as the marketing and financial side of the business. I am skilled in programming for both youth and adults, and have managed programs and leagues with over 6000 participants, and $600,000 in yearly revenue.

My experience on the facility side include two Eastern Sports Management facilities, the Virginia Beach Field House, a 175,000 square foot indoor sports facility, and United Sports Training Center, a 127,000 square foot indoor facility and 60 acres of outdoor playing fields.

Currently with the City of Lexington I oversee and maintain 21 parks throughout the city that include playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, walking trails, athletic fields, green spaces and a competition-size pool.

I have managed Facebook pages and websites for these businesses, and effectively worked to target and reach desired demographics with our marketing.

I am blessed to be able to work around something I enjoy. Read more about me in this article (Andrew Lance: World of Parks and Recreation), or you can connect with Andrew Lance on Facebook, LinkedIn, BrandYourself, or Quora.
