2021 Facilities Survey Results

The HYSA Board invited you to learn more about your Club’s future and our planning efforts by responding to our Facility Improvement Survey. 

In June we asked for Member feedback on facility improvement options such as more outdoor natural grass fields, artificial turf fields, an indoor field house, as well as thoughts on your level of support for a capital campaign.

The results are in!

Thank you for your HYSA Membership and the 300 responses to this survey. We learned from your comments that there is a strong desire among our Membership to improve the infrastructure of our current facility including our fields, parking areas and access points.

The information from the survey will help our club prioritize its efforts in assessing what is feasible for improving our facilities and expanding our programming.

The HYSA Board will determine the next steps in formulating a feasibility and capital campaign and continue to keep you informed of these exciting developments along the way.

Please reach out to any HYSA Board Member and our Executive Director if you have further questions or suggestions for this effort.
