SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Great Outdoors Project is a huge project ($15.6 million) that will enhance every school and school owned property within the district.  Look on the school district website to see what it entails. How our specific sport is impacted:  It will give SSCSD a turf surface that they have needed for so many years. They would no longer have to pay out of their Booster Club funds to have games at the Dome and others would not have to scramble to find and pay for turf surfaces as they prepare for and play in post season play.  They wouldn’t have to get on a bus to go to practice on a turf surface.  Players would be able to stay after for class help without having to worry about catching a bus in time. It showcases their skill set and field hockey is meant to be played on a smooth, fast surface.  The quality of their play will increase even more. It puts them on a more equal playing field with the best teams in New York State.  Camps and tournaments can be played on it in the off seasons.  The benefits go on and on for not just field hockey but PE classes, many of the district’s other sports and the whole community.   The vote will take place on May 15 for the Great Outdoors Project from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.   The voting places are elementary schools with the Saratoga Springs City School District. Estimated New Taxes Levied to Support Project-Zero
