About

The most transformational project of RangerVision 2020 – the creation of the Rick Kilps Center – is entering its final phases and Parkside Athletics is working hard to complete this first-class facility.

The success of the Turf Center Challenge, which will culminate as part of Parkside Day on April 15, is critical to the completion of a state-of-the-art facility. On the north end of the Sports & Activity Center, the project is repurposing the old aquatics space and creating a multipurpose space with 6,300-square feet of turf.  

The challenge will pit the four programs that will frequently use the facility for practice – men’s soccer, women’s soccer, baseball, and softball – against each other to see who can generate the most support. The program with the most donors by the end of the day on Parkside Day (April15) will receive as special gift as well as have the opportunity to unlock additional challenge dollars for their program.

Donors, alumni, and business partners can assist us with the finishes to the space, including batting cages, wall padding, custom netting, and divider curtains.
