IFJ/PCSL Capital Campaign - Fields
The Illinois Fire Juniors "Big Field. Big Dream. Big Impact: The Campaign for Community" capital campaign aims to bring private financial support to our community-wide efforts to provide continued excellence and access to travel and recreation soccer programs for current and future generations.
We do this with our eye on the ball as to why our soccer programs are so critically important in the lives of so many. We believe it's about being part of a team, learning to lose and win with grace, building leadership skills, representing our families and community, understanding the value of fitness, and always having fun!
Through our campaign, we propose the building of a new soccer complex to fully meet our current community soccer program requirements, along with the creation of an endowed fund to cement our commitment to maintaining affordable program costs for all families. Our goals include a developing a championship quality tournament complex that would place our community on the map of regional and national showcase events. Beyond the competitive sports aspect of this initiative, the building of such a complex would have significant economic development and societal impacts on the region.
Our vision includes three goals:
1) The acquisition and development of a soccer complex for the future home of the Illinois Fire Juniors.
2) The advancement of an endowed fund to ensure monies are available each year to assist young athletes and their families with the costs associated with participation in our soccer programs.
3) The pursuit of resources to build out a regional soccer complex of tournament quality featuring 20 lighted fields, championship turf fields, an indoor field facility with expansive restrooms and concessions.
