Al Canale FieldhouseConstruction is proceeding on schedule for the Al Canale Memorial Fieldhouse, at Hartford Crossing Recreational Complex on Church Road (across from Lenape High School).  The fieldhouse will replace an old trailer that served as the snack bar and announcer's booth.  It will consist of 2 stories on a basement, and it will include restroom facilities, a kitchen and snack bar, and team locker rooms.  The second floor will have picture windows that raise the announcer and game officials up to an eyeball height of roughly 16 feet.

Old FieldhouseFunds for the field house were raised over the past few years by MYAA Football volunteers, with help from many area businesses. The work is being supervised by Bob Meyer Communities, and many contractors donated substantial time and materials. A Goal Line Club was organized in 2002 in order to help make this long standing goal a reality.  Fund raisers included sales of t-shirts and other clothing and souvenirs at games, sales and advertising in an annual yearbook, and fund-raising events such as candy sales.

The new fieldhouse will complement the new turf which was laid this past summer, and the lights which were added to the outfield of the T-ball baseball field, allowing the 3 youngest football teams to practice after dusk in the fall.  Thanks again to MYAA and all the coaches, volunteers and businesses who helped get this much-needed work done.  The field house is due to be completed during the summer of 2004, in time for the fall football season.
