TASD Track & Field Project
Dear Troy Athletic Supporter,
Troy has been operating a Track and Field program for boys since 1966 and girls since 1975. Since the beginning of the program, Troy athletes and graduates have been setting records and competing at all secondary and collegiate levels. Despite the lack of a home track and field facility, and safe, appropriate practice facilities, our athletes continue to set records and compete at all levels. Since the programs began, practices have been conducted locally at a variety of places and on a variety of surfaces. Currently the track and field teams practice on the grassy areas and asphalt driveway around the Intermediate School and Commons Building.
The Troy Area School District, in partnership with a community volunteer committee, is working to bring a track and field facility, appropriate for practice and competition, to the District. The facility will also be used for physical education classes and practices for other sports and will be available to the public for health and wellness use. The track will be located just to the north of the Intermediate School. Some field events will be held in the center of the track with those requiring larger spaces being held on the north end of Turtleback.
The District has committed $1.3 million to construct the actual facility and make it competition-ready. The community volunteer committee is dedicated to raising an additional $400,000 for restrooms and a concession stand, bleacher seating, security lighting, and to support long-term care and maintenance.
We invite individuals and businesses from the community to join us in making this facility a reality for not only our students and student-athletes, but for our community as well. Donations at all levels are appreciated and are fully tax deductible. Various levels of donor recognition are available and naming opportunities exist for our major donors.
Thank you for your consideration,
Track & Field Facility Fundraising Committee
