Phase 2 – Campus Improvements (In Progress)

Since 2011, the DS Boosters has been hard at work designing a Master Plan intended to enhance our community’s most valuable asset – the regional school campus.  This initiative was originally developed in two phases.  Phase 1 included the design, development and construction of  Nora Searle Field.  Phase 2 is a project in the starting gate.  It’s high time that we give our student-athletes AND the community what they need – improvements and upgrades to existing soccer, lacrosse, baseball, and softball fields, as well as new tennis courts, an outdoor basketball court, renovation of the Snack Shack, and an all-around beautification effort.  Get ready – it’s going to be excellent.

The Snack Shack Renovation (Completed August 2017)

The Snack Shack was originally constructed by the DS Boosters and has been a warm gathering spot for DS fans.  In the spring of 2017, the DS Boosters will launch a capital campaign and help underwrite the upgrade and addition of a new patio, a new grilling area, and added seating and spectator tables.  This project is the first of what will hopefully be several improvements intended to better the overall regional campus. Check back soon, and we’ll have a way you can be involved in this initiative, including the opportunity to donate and receive naming rights in the patio design.
