ComePlayDetroit (CPD) was founded to create unique and active social experiences in Metro Detroit. In addition to organizing and operating intramural sports leagues, CPD hosts multicultural social events and partners with community development organizations that are dedicated to the attraction and retention of young adults in southeastern Michigan.
CPD leagues and events provide an opportunity for young adults to achieve a dynamic lifestyle and become integrated with their community culturally, socially, professionally, and philanthropically.
Justin Jacobs - President and Founder
Justin is a local Detroit product that returned home in 2007 after attending DePaul University in Chicago. Bored by the lack of social events for young adults, it became clear that there needed to be more opportunities for young adults to have fun! CPD’s intramural leagues and social events provide young professionals a place where they can become engaged socially and actively, while also providing an alternative to meeting people at the bars. If you have any ideas on new leagues or events you would like to see, Justin is always interested in hearing from you. You can email him directly at email@example.com.
Cleveland Thurber IV - VP of Business Development
Cleveland (CT) is a local Detroiter who returned to the area after living in Los Angeles
and Chicago for the past 5 years. Noticing that Detroit is one of the biggest sports
cities in America with a huge void in the young adult sports leagues area, he is very
interested in building and promoting the ComePlayDetroit initiative. Having very
fond memories of competitive high school sports in Michigan, CT is compelled to
create an environment where the sport and social culture continues on in young
peoples lives past the high school and college experience. Feel free to contact him at
firstname.lastname@example.org and start playing in Detroit!
