DC Government Survey Regarding Fields

Do you, have you or will you in the future use a DC Public School (DCPS) or DC Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR) field? If so, the “District of Columbia (DC) Artificial Turf Interagency Work Group would like your feedback.
Based on community concerns regarding local fields the Interagency DC Artificial Turf Interagency Work Group was established.

Over the past three months, the DC Artificial Turf Interagency Work Group has been meeting regularly to review playing surface safety research, field maintenance best practices, public engagement approaches, and user group communication methods. This survey is an important way to gain additional feedback from DC residents and users of playing fields based on their experiences with fields owned and operated by the District government, including public parks and schools.

We're also interested in your perspective on the type of materials used for field surfaces, and how any major changes to fields are communicated to residents and users of the fields. The Work Group will develop policy recommendations based on the research, survey results and community feedback. The final report will be made available to the public.
Responses to this survey will help inform improvements to District policy on managing and maintaining fields and have the option of submitting contact information for further engagement on this topic, but you also have the option to remain anonymous.

Please share the link to the survey with your neighbors, family, team members, list serves and anyone who may be interested in providing feedback on DC fields.

Winter Indoor Tennis at Chevy Chase Community Center for Boys and Girls 5-12 Starts January 29

If your tennis player didn’t make it into one of Flex tennis classes at Lafayette Elementary School we have another tennis option for your player. Lafayette Tennis is now offering indoor winter tennis activities at the Chevy Chase Community Center beginning on January 29th for boys and girls ranging in age from 5 to 12. They will run for 8 weeks. We will be using one of the game rooms in the community center with tennis racquets, mini-nets and foam balls. The kids will have fun learning different shots while playing games and doing challenging drills that involve lots of hitting and running. Each class is 1 hour long. Each 8 week session costs $200. Registration forms, spot availability and information can be found at Lafayette Tennis. If you have any questions about the program you can email Paul Rosenbaum or call him at 202 441-0925. Registration is also open for Tennis Summer Camp. See schedule and age ranges here.

Don't forget to come to the community meeting on January 17 at 6:30PM at the Chevy Chase Community Center to support what you want to see being done to the new Lafayette Park recreation building, especially lighting around the building in the winter time.
