To provide safe and fun athletic opportunities for youth team sports in a competitive and instructional environment

My my My my

Parents, Friends, and Community Members –

For the past eleven years, Wesley Chapel-Weddington Athletic Association (WCWAA) has enjoyed the benefits of playing many sports on an artificial turf field at Weddington Optimist Park. This field has brought many years of exciting youth sports, and has allowed the community to play multiple sports year-round on a safe surface. After eleven years of wear and tear, it’s now time to replace the field so our children continue to have a safe place to play.  WCWAA is a non-profit that does not receive funding from the state or local municipalities.  Our programs are funded 100% by registration fees, sponsorships and donations.

Starting the week of August 1, 2021, this project will final become a reality!  The first step is to replace the retaining wall near the parking lot.  Once that is complete, the turf will be removed and replaced.  We will be recycling the old turf at various locations throughout the park including batting cages.

We are asking each family and business owner in the community to help fund our Turf Replacement Campaign. 

100% of the donations made as part of this effort will go towards the Turf Replacement Campaign. This field has been an important part of our community and we need to work together to keep it safe for our children.  Any donation you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.  WCWAA is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  

All businesses and families who give $5,000 or more to the Turf Replacement Campaign will be listed on a Thank You Board in front of the field. 

The cost of this project is $300,000.  We are off to a strong start - through June 30, 2021, we have raised $42,353, but we have a long way to go!

Our goal is to raise another $30,000 per year for the next 8 years to fully fund this project:

$60,000 by November 30, 2021

$90,000 by November 30, 2022

$120,000 by November 30, 2023

$150,000 by November 30, 2024

$180,000 by November 30, 2025

$210,000 by November 30, 2026

$240,000 by November 30, 2027

$270,000 by November 30, 2028

$300,000 by November 30, 2029
