The Annandale Boys & Girls Club will be at tonight’s Annandale HS football game to officially present our $70,000 contribution to the Atom’s turf project. We are proud to provide our support to Annandale High School’s campaign to bring turf to AHS Bolding Stadium. This $70,000 donation will ensure AHS meets the minimum commitment for Fairfax County to bring turf to Annandale!
ABGC is proud of our long and ongoing relationship with Annandale High School. Many of our youth athletes go on to become Annandale Atoms, contributing to their school, their teams and our community and we’re delighted to play a role in the lives of so many young people.
Turf will benefit AHS in many ways, including:
- Annual Savings of $39,000 in Reduced Maintenance Costs
- Significant Reduction ‘in Injuries, Including 50% Decrease in Cranial Cervical injuries
- No Lost Time or Costs Related to Transportation to Other Fields for Practice
- Ensure Teams Play on Home Field if Earn Home Field Advantage
- No Down Time Because of Weather or Yearly Maintenance (Seeding or Sodding)
- Improves local environment by eliminating storm runoff that now carries fertilizer, pesticides and marking paint
- Fields Would Benefit Multiple ANNANDALE Sports Teams, Band and PE Classes
- Ability for Use by Community Recreation Leagues as well as Community Events and Camps
- High Potential for Revenue Generation from Hosting Potential Playoff & Championship Games
