FA Scores! Campaigning for 21st Century Competition Under the Lights

For more than two centuries, the stewardship of Fryeburg Academy’s alumni, families, and friends have enabled it to remain true to its mission and meet the demands of its present and future. The school needs that stewardship again now. We request that you consider your capacity to give generously, and we ask you to make a gift to the FA Scores! Campaign.

Our Plans

At its 2021 fall meeting, Fryeburg Academy’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously in support of an exciting plan to install synthetic turf and lights at the current football field location, an area encompassing 20% of the main campus but in its current configuration, used for only four varsity and two junior varsity games in the fall, and six girls’ lacrosse games in the spring.

The school has retained Activitas, Inc., a Boston-area firm specializing in planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, and athletic facility planning, to consult on project design and related considerations. The plan’s initial phase includes an infilled synthetic turf field suitable for soccer, football, boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse, and field hockey; relocation or refurbishing of areas for discus, long/triple jump, pole vault, and high jump, and reconstruction of shot put area;  seating for 640 spectators; sports lighting, a new scoreboard, press box, and sound system; as well as various parking improvements.

This project will...
… benefit male and female athletes equally
… allow teams to utilize an outdoor field much earlier in the spring
… provide a practice and competition surface on par with those of conference competitors
… expand scheduling possibilities for FA teams
… allow use by middle school and local recreation programs, facilitating a unified K-12 extracurricular program
… generate revenue through use for regional athletic events and rental by sports clinics
    and summer camps
… appeal to prospective boarding students and potentially benefit enrollment
… foster heightened community spirit and pride
