Reilly Stadium and Turf Project
Our goal: to secure funding for an all-weather field, new track, and video scoreboard at Reilly Stadium
Why Upgrade Reilly Stadium?
Maintaining playable field conditions throughout the fall sports season proves to be a daunting task
Field conditions deteriorate quickly and are slow to improve, eliminating the ability for any groups outside of soccer and football to use the stadium throughout the year. Additionally, the field is costly to maintain: about $53,000 per year for lining, seeding, fertilizing, watering and mowing.
The track is in need of replacement. Estimates of the cost are more than $130,000. Stop gap repairs have not solved the problems.
Our current scoreboard is outdated, limiting its use. A new video board will allow for more ads, video replay, and may be utilized by the district and classroom instructors.
$40,000+ savings per year
A synthetic field will benefit our district and community by providing a multi-use, all-weather, safe and consistent surface that will be available for hundreds of events annually. In addition to use by junior high and high school groups, the stadium will be available for youth football and soccer programs, elementary school field days, community events, and more. Physical education classes will be able to use the field, providing Salem schools with its largest classroom. Installing a turf field will also reduce maintenance costs. With the elimination of lining, watering, fertilizing and mowing expenses, annual maintenance costs will cut to an estimated $10,000 per year.
