Turf Complex Project

Turf Complex Project

Williston is one of only 2 large cities in ND that do not have turf baseball and softball fields.

 

The centerpiece for the campaign is converting the entire playing surface of both diamonds to synthetic turf. Spring seasons for baseball and softball in North Dakota often lead to shortened windows for practices and games. Each year brings numerous instances when both the Tetons and Williston High School lose a number of home games. Synthetic turf would allow more practices and games to be held in Williston for the college, the high school, and surrounding communities.

In addition to the turf, the complex will receive upgrades to secure the complex with exterior fencing, offer better seating with new grandstans on both fields, and establish restrooms and concessions serving areas to enhance the player and fan experience.  Field lighting is also planned to lengthen th eamount of time in each day the fields will be playable, especially important during the spring seasons.

Fundraising Campaign

Construction will begin in the spring of 2024 so fields will be playable in the spring of 2025. Though preparing for two phases of fundraising and construction if necessary, the goal is to fundraise and complete the complex in one phase.

The WSC Foundation has provided up to $2 million in matching funds for any sponsorships/donations. Donations may be a one-time payment or spread over a period of up to 5 years with payment options of monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Recurring payments can be invoiced or charged to cards.
