A message from Athletic Director Jim Sarra

As the Director of Athletics, I have three main principles:

  • win championships,
  • engage the community and
  • enhance the student-athlete experience.

The Kiwanis Stadium Turf Project aims to fulfill all three objectives as it will bring together past, present and future Prairie Stars as we continue to grow our beautiful campus and historic Kiwanis Stadium. This project will engage the community–which has a rich history and ever growing soccer presence–and will continue to enhance Springfield soccer. This is an investment in our student-athletes as we continue to aim at building and sustaining a championship-caliber program and ultimately position our student-athletes for sustained success.
