No Indoor Turf for Winter 20/21
October 6, 2020
RE: Maryland SoccerPlex Indoor Turf Fields
This is a notice regarding the status of the indoor turf fields at the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse within Maryland SoccerPlex. At the conclusion of the 2019/20 indoor soccer season at the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse in March 2020, the artificial turf used for the fields had reached its end of life cycle and was removed and recycled. It was our intent to procure new artificial turf fields for the 2020/21 indoor soccer season to start in November 2020. Due to the lead time, cost involved, and uncertainty of a return to play timeline within Montgomery County, we did not purchase new artificial turf for installation this winter. As such our traditional indoor soccer programming, including youth and adult leagues, will not occur this year. The Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse will remain with multipurpose court surfaces through the entirety of the winter season. We are currently evaluating alternative programming in a variety of sports in order to provide much needed sporting activities during the stressful and difficult times. We will also open the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse to rentals for any activities allowed within State and County regulations related to COVID.
We apologize to those that traditionally count on us for winter indoor programming. At this time, it is our intent to resume normal activities with artificial turf fields inside the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse for the 2021/22 winter season but will re-evaluate the situation again next year.
