Smithton Sports Complex

Track

We are excited to see the completion of the track itself: The surfacing and painting crews finished their work in November and the fencing was completed almost immediately.


  • Track Surface: the all-weather track surface is complete and the striping and painting are complete.
  • Fencing: low visibility fencing surrounding the track itself is complete.
  • Concrete: concrete surrounding the concession, restroom and storage areas and providing a walkway from the east parking lot has begun. Rock to complete the areas designated for spectators will follow.
  • Electrical: installation of a transformer for exterior lighting on complex will also take place this fall and winter.

 

Smithton R-VI is grateful for the support of our community for this project and we look forward to sharing this facility with everyone!  As soon as the the track is ready, we will have an event to celebrate the track as a source of pride in our community, and the healthy exercise opportunities  and sporting competitions it will provide and encourage in the years to come.  Please watch for further communication regarding this event!

***SAFETY. Please know that the safety and well-being of our Smithton R-VI students, families and supporters is of the utmost importance to us at all times. Therefore, we ask everyone to maintain a safe distance from the work site.
*Access to the facility is unsafe at this time, the ground is unlevel and not prepared for foot traffic.
*Large equipment is stored and used on the site--visibility is often difficulty for drivers of this type of large machinery and distance is imperative. This equipment is for trained professionals only.
*Lighting: there are no lights in or around the sports facility at this time.
*There are sections of concrete formed and remaining to be poured making the site unsafe

Track Field Events:
Work will be ongoing to complete the field event areas of the track.

Softball Field:
The softball field is scheduled to progress for completion by spring 2018 Smithton Softball season.
