Paul Adams


In 2012, Paul Adams and Andy Johnson created a positive partnership to help grow the business of selling Paul’s patented invention: A portable, lightweight, all-weather, easy to assemble sports shelter—the perfect complement to any athletic or outdoor event. There was nothing else like it on the market! Completely unique and customizable, Paul had designed the soccer shelter around the typical team six-seater bench. Andy knew it was a phenomenal product and he wanted to help Paul, a Seattle firefighter with a self-taught business background, take the company to the next level. The rest is history!
