Please build this project! As the parent of a high school track athlete, I think this would be an amazing resource. Currently, “indoor track” competitions are held outside in the coldest part of winter because there is no indoor facility available for these meets. The nearest indoor track that is available for high school meets is in Prince George’s County, MD and takes at least an hour to get to from most of Prince William County. The distances that teams have to travel for indoor track meets is ridiculous. Our student athletes deserve better!

I would rather County spend this money to replace McCoart Administration Building and build a new Public Safety Headquarters.

This would be an excellent addition to the county and would quickly generate revenue by hosting events such as indoor track meets (VHSL and AAU), cheer competitions, and other sporting events for Northern Virginia schools and rec leagues. It would greatly benefit the PWCS high schools that have to travel to Maryland, Lynchburg, and Richmond to compete in events.
