5 VENUES and FIELDS WITH SOCCER GROWTH THE NEED FOR RECTANGLE FIELDS WILL INCREASE A PERMANENT FOOTBALL FACILITY IS REQUIRED ADDITIONAL ADULT SIZE BASEBALL FIELDS REQUIRED SIZE OF FASTBALL FIELDS NEED TO BE INCREASED, FENCES MOVED BACK TENNIS LOOKING FOR INDOOR FACILITIES FOR YEAR ROUND PLAY. MORE ICE TIME SO LEAGUES CAN INCREASE THEIR NUMBER. CRICKET LOOKING FOR A PITCH FOR THEIR SPORT BEHIND OTHER CITIES WITH REGARDS TO RECTANGLE FIELDS, LIGHTED FIELDS, BLEACHERS AND ARTIFICIAL TURF. (example – possible solution) – Note: Baseball fields in example would need to be replaced

7 MAINTENANCE BETTER MAINTENANCE REQUIRED OF FIELDS AND VENUES. REGULATION OF WHEN FIELDS CAN BE USED SHOULD DEPEND ON FIELD QUALITY – FOR EXAMPLE WE ARE NOT TO GO ON TO FIELDS UNTIL EARLY MAY BUT THERE ARE TIMES THAT CONDITIONS ALLOW FOR EARLIER USE. CENTRAL RESOURCE REQUIRED TO ANNOUNCE FIELD SCHEDULES, CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS.

8 SPORTS GROUP COMMUNICATION SPORTING GROUPS NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO HELP PROMOTE SPORTS IN GENERAL, CREATING A LARGER AND UNIFIED VOICE FOR ADDITONAL FIELDS, VENUES, UPGRADES AND UPKEEP. VOLUNTEERS FROM DIFFERENT SPORTS COULD AID IN ANOTHER SPORT, PULLING OFF A PROVINCIAL, NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL EVENT FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

9 ELITE AND NATIONAL SPORT EVENTS THE COMBINED EFFORTS OF GROUPS THROUGH SPORTS KAWARTHA COULD HELP IN ATTRACTING THESE TYPES OF EVENTS. SMALLER COMMUNITIES THAN OURS HAVE ATTRACTED PROVINCIAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL EVENTS. Example: 2010 Womens World Curling Championship, Swift Current, population 15,000. ADDITIONAL AND UPGRADED FACILITIES WOULD LEAD TO GETTING THESE TYPES OF EVENTS.

10 ECONOMIC BENEFITS LOCAL SPORTS GROUPS BRING ECONOMIC VALUE TO THE CITY THROUGH FIELD RENTALS, EQUIPMENT AND UNIFORM PURCHASES, REGISTRATION AND SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL HOSPITALITY BUSINESS. A PROVINCIAL, NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL EVENT WOULD BE OF VALUE TO REGIONAL HOTELS, RESTAURANTS, STORES etc.

11 FINANCING THE GROUP POWER THROUGH SPORTS KAWARTHA MAY AID IN GETTING PUBLIC AND PRIVATE FUNDING PARTNERSHIPS, WHICH WOULD BENEFIT GROUP MEMBERS AND THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE. EXAMPLES OF SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIPS: - BETHUNE and SIMCOE BASKETBALL COURT - NEW RUGBY CLUBHOUSE – A HERITAGE BUILDING FROM THE LAWN BOWLING CLUB - ROTARY TRAILS - WELLNESS CENTRE - NEW TRENT ATHLETIC CENTRE

12 CONCLUSION – SETTING PRIORITIES MULTI PURPOSE FIELDS WITH TURF PARTNERSHIPS MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT IMPLEMENTS 3 SPORTING PRIORITIES WITHIN THE NEXT 2 YEARS. FOR EXAMPLE; 1. Multi purpose turf field 2. Attract an elite sporting event 3. Upgrade current facilities
