Elevate:

[verb el-uh-veyt; adjective el-uh-veyt]

1. to move or raise to a higher place or position; lift up.

2. to raise the spirits; put in high spirits.

3. to raise (the voice) in pitch or volume.

 


 

It's a simple word that invokes motion. It hints at a drive to reach the next level. It embodies change and signals a new era. And it felt at home in the Rocky Mountains.

Needless to say, it was an easy decision when we went to name our original documentary series.

We started this project because we knew there were an infinite number of compelling stories to tell around this club.

Stories about players and coaches, supporters and community. Stories of the ups and downs.

Most of all, we wanted to connect the team to the fans - the lifeblood of the club - and each episode will aim to deliver on that promise.

We hope you join us on this journey. #Elevate
