Press Release – For Immediate Release: Kids First Sports taps Cincinnati United Contractors + North Side Bank for $6 Million Expansion – PRESS RELEASE

Kids First: Always, and Forever

Former UC gymnast Jeff Metzger has never lost sight of his kid-first mission

Groundbreaking set for 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday May 14 at largest private kids’ rec center in the U.S. ~ Kids First Sports taps Cincinnati United Contractors for new, $6 million East Kemper Road facility.

[SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OHIO (CINCINNATI) ~ May 12, 2019] Kids First Sports Center and its builder, Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC), have launched a $6 million expansion to further diversify and grow one of the largest privately-owned recreational sports centers in the nation.

The new, 54,000-square-foot facility ( will sit next to its current East Kemper Road HQ and will more than double capabilities for basketball and volleyball, allowing for six basketball courts or eight volleyball courts.


With completion, the Kids First campus will occupy 162,000 square feet on 13 acres, a wonderland of academics, sports, and healthy choices for local kids.

Behind it all: a professional relationship between Kids First and CUC ( dating back eight previous construction assignments to their first collaboration in 1983.

The current expansion will allow the Ronnie Grandison Basketball Academy and Kids First volleyball services to exponentially expand.

But, it wasn’t without its challenges.

Property had to be acquired, zoning had to be worked out, and financing had to be secured.

That’s where Kids First once again turned to CUC.

After a more than 20-year relationship with one lender, Kids First was not able to secure favorable financing, so they turned to CUC who brought in North Side Bank & Trust.

North Side Bank jumped at the opportunity to partner with Kids First on the project and closed on the financing in record time.


CUC was also able to help Kids First navigate the zoning process to achieve the approvals needed for the project to move forward.

Metzger is a decorated, multi-sport athlete hailing from Woodward High School and former University of Cincinnati gymnast.

When a baseball injury derailed his career in gymnastics, he took a job teaching tumbling at a dance studio and the proverbial seed was sown. Metzger launched Kids First from a church basement in 1973.


Since then, it’s blossomed into an athletic and academic beast, with two dozen programs such as TumbleBees (gymnastics) drawing upwards of 1,600 kids every week.

Our foundation is our Mission, ‘To give kids the tools to grow into a happy, healthy, responsible adults,’ ” said Metzger.

A 1998 rebranding changed the company’s name from Queen City Gymnastics to Kids First Sports Center, paving the way for the current, 108,000-square-foot campus.


Kids First also drew upon its Seven Unifying Principles for inspiration.

One of those principles is continual, perpetual growth, to create new opportunities for all of our kids,” said Metzger.

It’s been an amazing journey, with some incredible families. We’ve trained the grandparents of some of these kids.”

We are thrilled to assist Kids First once again, in their continual quest for every child to grow up happy, healthy, and physically active,” said CUC President Chuck Kubicki.

We were there 36 years ago, we will be there for Jeff forever.”

It Came from Cincinnati: RejuVeination Nation

RejuVeination: The Vein Restoration Group

New National Vein Treatment Clinic sets up in Kenwood, plans regional/national expansion, with life-changing treatments for the cosmetic and the clinical

First clinic opens at Kenwood Crossing; up to seven new markets in five years.

RejuVeination: The Vein Restoration Group, from longtime healthcare pros at UASI.

The Leaders: Medical Director Marios Panayides, physician Don Duke, COO Nick Snider.

Radiofrequency Ablation: Higher-quality outcomes, more appealing results, less recovery time.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ November 21, 2017] The spirit of Cincinnati-based entrepreneurial success – innovation, pioneering processes, and an intuitive, customer-based ethos – has been earning the Queen City mucho props at the national and international levels.

With today’s launch of RejuVeination, The Vein Restoration Group (, yet another Cincinnati startup takes aim at a national business model, by incubating its first endeavor with extensive research, clinical experience, and the underpinnings of a nationally-based leader in the health care industry: United Audit Systems Inc. (UASI) of Cincinnati.

UASI, based in Evanston (, is a leading national provider of revenue-cycle solutions designed to help healthcare facilities achieve correct reimbursement in the quickest possible time.

Founded over three decades ago, UASI processes enormous amounts of healthcare billing data, collating practices, procedures and cost platforms for hundreds of hospitals, physicians and clinics.

Amidst this cacophony of data, UASI executives noticed a dearth of procedures performed locally to treat patients with spider veins, varicose veins, i.e., Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).

Compared to similar metropolitan markets, one outcome of the data analysis was crystal-clear: the number of adults afflicted with CVI is off the charts in Greater Cincinnati,” said RejuVeination COO Nick Snider, “which begs for a smart, convenient, customer- friendly solution.

First Cog in National RejuVeination Network Opens in Kenwood

Enter RejuVeination: The Vein Restoration Group, which opened this Fall at the Kenwood Crossing office complex near Galbraith and Kenwood roads.

The launch of RejuVeination ( marks the first step in a national, multi-market expansion journey for a team of health care professionals committed to changing lives in a positive and significant way, by providing compassionate and personalized vascular care.

The difference between RejuVeination, and every other vein treatment clinic out there?

The brains behind RejuVeination, at UASI (

Both will be celebrating an upcoming grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony. Details to be announced soon.

RejuVeination will provide immediate improved quality of life for our patients,” adds Medical Director Marios Panayides, MD, FACS.

Dr. Panayides will be leading the medical teams employed by RejuVeination.

Dr. Panayides has more than 40 years of experience treating CVI patients, as well as an extensive background as a general, thoracic and vascular surgeon, primarily in the Dayton/Springfield market.

With our tools, and advances in technology, our patients can avoid the later stages of this disease altogether,” Dr. Panayides says.



Benefits of Radiofrequency Ablation

Our objective is to provide the best CVI treatment available, to impact positive outcomes. We’re the best at treating vein disease, because that is our exclusive specialty and practice,” adds Dr. Duke, a physician with 30 years of practice in the Greater Cincinnati region.

This is all we do. I am proud to be part of a caring team of professionals specializing in the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment option for vein disease,” said Dr. Duke.

Rejuvenation primarily uses Radiofrequency Ablation that allows its physicians to:

–  Affect higher-quality outcomes than common commercial laser techniques;

–  Deliver more visually appealing results;

–  Allow patients to heal and rejoin life with significantly reduced recovery times.

The core values that earned United Audit Systems Inc. its role as a national leader in health care are embedded within RejuVeination.

The team of professionals at RejuVeination headquarters, 8251 Pine Road in the popular Kenwood section of East-Side Cincinnati, seek to educate people suffering from venous disorders in order to provide comprehensive vein care in an exceptional, service-oriented environment.

Grand Opening – Ribbon-Cutting Details TBA

Details for the official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for RejuVeination are forthcoming. Representatives of the media are invited to attend. An official ribbon-cutting will take place and tours of the clinic, interviews with RejuVeination physicians and officials, will be available.
