Cardinals Fly! fulfills a compelling, clear need to upgrade athletic and physical education spaces to meet the requirements of current and future students in the area of competitive athletics. The envisioned field will create additional, flexible space allowing two teams to practice simultaneously. This capability will offer students, coaches, and families vastly improved scheduling. Further, short practice fields afford the school's athletic program the opportunity to implement some of the newest ideas designed to improve skills in both soccer and lacrosse. The project design not only creates two new short fields, but restores James River Day School's full game field to perfect condition.
Cardinals Fly! also incorporates resurfacing the Carrington Field House gym floor. The current surface, in excess of twenty years old, is in need of replacement to improve the player experience and address years of wear and tear. The school's volleyball and basketball programs are thriving, and an improved, environmentally-friendly surface gives the community a chance to guarantee current and future indoor athletic success.
