September 17, 2013--Thanks in part to a tightly organized construction crew and excellent weather, Phase II of the Sierra Canyon School Athletic Fields is more than halfway complete. The new facilities include a CIF regulation baseball field, parking lot, locker rooms, and ample spectator seating.

Dual sets of bleacher seats flank the new baseball diamond, and afford a view of the home and visitor dugouts. The bleachers include customized touches such as an elevated photo platform and a ramp for universal access. To accomodate visitors with energy-efficient vehicles, six spaces in the parking lot are being prepared to serve as Green Vehicle Charging Stations, while the concrete block walls will feature anti-graffiti coating. A grouping of lockers near the southeast corner of the fields makes it easy for students and visitors to ride up and secure their bicycles.

LED site lighting will keep the grounds illuminated during night games while helping Sierra Canyon meet its energy efficiency goals. In a stylish synergy of safety and energy-efficiency, eleven light bollards will line the field perimeter. School administrators are looking forward to using the soon-to-be completed fields for competitive athletics, training exercises, and physical education classes.
