HEREFORD, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Thanks to the help of several donors, Hereford Sports and Wellness at the Caviness Sports Complex was able to break ground this morning on a brand new state-of-the-art synthetic turf multi-use facility.
“I think it’s something that shows how progressive we are at this point,” Hereford Mayor Tom Simons said. “It shows how people want to make a difference, and how they changed things and how things will continue to change.”
Hereford Mayor Tom Simons, KidsInc CEO Jimmy Lackey and many more that have been behind this two-year project are now starting to see it become a reality.
The new turf fields that are being installed will provide the organization with a year-round playing surface that can host outdoor sports including youth and adult soccer, hopefully club soccer for the high school in the near future, as well as T-ball and flag football.
“Now we’re really turning this into a full sports complex,” Lackey said.
“We’ll be able to do all types of different things with this, and it will make it a great opportunity for coach Cab (Joe Cabezuela), our program director, to offer cooperative programming between the indoor and outdoor facility. It will be a lot of fun.”
The new complex will fittingly called the “Sports Corral”.
Hereford’s new sports complex is expected to be done by mid-November.
KidsInc is currently back to playing youth sports. For any parents interested in registering their child visit, kidsinc.org.
