In 2019, plans were created, and several donors stepped up to partner with the Texico Conference, to help make a new soccer field for Sandia View Academy (SVA) a reality. The effects of the pandemic put the plans on hold, however we are pleased that this past December, construction of the new field began and is quickly progressing.
The new soccer field, which is being built on the north end of SVA’s campus, will have natural turf, sports lighting and will serve as the home for SVA soccer and other physical education activities. The field is also part of a Master Plan for a new academy facility when funds can be made available and student enrollment increases to create a greater need for instructional and other educational support areas.
“It will be exciting to have this wonderful new athletic area available for use by the students in anticipation of being involved in a soccer league and for intramural play as well as being available for church groups to use,” said Phil Robertson, Texico Conference Executive Secretary/Treasurer. “There is great enthusiasm for this project as it is another step forward in the development of the new SVA facility.”
Currently, we anticipate that this new field will be ready for use for the 2023-2024 school year.
