BSC Announcement – 5.23.23

Press Release: Tuesday, May 23, 2023

This announcement is bittersweet for us at Baxter Sports Complex as we announce the upcoming departure of Jeff Woodside from his current position as Executive Director of Baxter Sports Complex.

Since joining Baxter Sports Complex in 2017, Jeff has helped facilitate the growth and development of our facility, our organization, and our community as a whole. We now average more than 22,000 visitors to our complex annually with numerous leagues, tournaments and events. Baxter Sports Complex is also home to the Fort Madison Junior High and High School Boys and Girls Soccer programs, as well as Fort Madison High School Girls Softball.

Jeff has accepted a new position with the Burlington Community School District that will allow him to advance his career and continue to make a difference within his community. The Board of Directors thanks Jeff for his countless contributions that have paved the way for the continued success of Baxter Sports Complex. While we will miss him and his leadership greatly, we wish him the absolute best in his new endeavors.

Having said that, Jeff’s departure opens the door for someone to step into the Director role and continue to build on the great programs already in place. Jeff will be in place through our 3rd Annual Golf Tournament & Auction Fundraiser in July, but at the time of this announcement, a job posting has been created and is currently listed on and linked below for ease of accessibility. Over the next few weeks we will be accepting applications to fill the position and would like to identify a candidate quickly so Jeff can help train his successor.

Again, we cannot thank Jeff enough for the unmatched dedication, enthusiasm and overall passion he has given us over the last 6 years. He will be missed by our Board of Directors, fellow staff members, and all who have passed through our gates!
