Soccer - Project Home Field Advantage Campaign

The goal of this project is to enhance our playing fields in order to develop our athletics program while reducing costs from rental fees at Pan Am Stadium.  New construction will include a playing field on the corner of Paris & Prentiss with bleachers to have ample seating for spectators, fencing, landscaping, and a small building with bathrooms, area for concession sales, and storage. The field would be primarily for soccer, but could also be used for football, lacrosse, band and also accessible to the school during recess for a play-area. This field would allow the teams to play and practice on-campus.

 

The scope of work includes: ground work (removal of trees, leveling and  extension of the field to east side); bleachers- (construction of two sets of bleachers to seat approx. 250 people, with concrete pad underneath);  fencing (short 36” high rubber coated fencing to help with controlled visitor access into field from parking lot located from Prentiss towards the middle school building and will be positioned near the parking lot with gate access from the parking lot into the field. Another possible fence also proposed to run from Paris, west towards the parking lot behind the goal and near the middle school building walkway); landscaping (monkey grass along fencing on Paris Ave to stop balls from rolling under fence and/or larger shrubs along fencing to block visual access to games from street) and  netting (behind goals to control balls from going onto Prentiss street or hitting middle school building.); and building complete with bathrooms, small area for concessions, limited covered “patio” type area, and garage-style storage.)

 

 

Benefits include:
  • Our students get the home field advantage!
  • Athletic department gets increased hours of play, practice & game time flexibility with lights and the ability to host games.
  • The program gets money back in their budget from not having rental fees and revenue from concessions.
  • Fans, parents and alums have campus pride and a gathering place
