Big News for the WYAA Field Project! Read On . . .

WYAA has Completed On-site Earth-Moving and Grading. Grass is Growing on 4 Fields!!

Westport Youth Athletic Association (WYAA) is a non-profit organization formed to build a community sports complex in Westport, Massachusetts.

It has been a year of great achievement for our Field Project!  In Spring 2019 Four (4) Baseball/Softball Fields will be used by Westport Youth!!

We have set a end of year campaign goal of $10,000 to start on this Giving Tuesday, November 27 (#GivingTuesday).  The gifts will go towards buying the lawn-mowing and landscaping equipment needed to operate the site thoughtfully in 2019.

Longer term, we continue to raise funds for 3 all-purpose fields, 2 more baseball fields, a playground, a walking track, paved driveways and parking areas as well as lots of other amenities – our Board and our community will keep plugging away!

 

Why does Westport Need Sports Fields?

  • Baseball / Softball leagues have 600+ kids; 45 teams and 6 spread out play areas.
  • Future Site of Coach Susan Fontaine’s fast-growing Hooked-on-hockey seasonal Field Hockey program.
  • Soccer has 500+ kids over 2 seasons.
  • Kids are playing on fields that are the wrong size for their age/ability level.
  • When the schools need the fields, the youth leagues get bumped.
  • Field improvements are repairs must go through the School Department rather than being done on the spot.
  • The Westport School Fields are not available for family or pickup games.

Now, more than ever, we need to build these fields!
