Thank you for the pleasure of instructing, coaching and perhaps inspiting your son in lacrosse. We hope he had an enjoyable experience, improved in the sport and found joy in the game. Lacrosse continues to grow in New Canaan.
I write to you wearing another "volunteer hat" in our town. Please give this some consideration. Please support this initiative.
I serve on the New Canaan Athletic Foundation (NCAF). Our organization is a recognized body in our town - as a private-public partnership with the Town of New Canaan. We help build, maintain and replace athletic fields and facilities in New Canaan. Two quick points of reference: the new track and the three new Water Tower turfs that serve lacrosse, as well as the replacement turf on Dunning Field.
Please consider the following as a parent of a youth athlete this season:
- No cancellations
- No rainouts
- Increased number of home games
- Increased number of players - boys & girls lacrosse growth
- House League growth
- Lights for night practices and games
- Visiting teams that enjoy playing at our campus
Our next phase will include a renovation of the Dunning Field entrance, all-day concession for youth sports, renovation and upgrade to the press box (to also serve multi-media use) and scoreboards for the turf fields. Eventually, we hope to support an effort for an indoor fieldhouse - TBD. Imagine one day not having to drive to Chelsea Piers or SoNo Fieldhouse.
Please go to our website and learn more. We have a board of directors. And click the red "DONATE" button on the upper right of the site.
Naming rights, a donor wall, large multi-year pledges can all be discussed with me.
