Designing the Future of Loveland Athletics
Posted Monday, January 25, 2016
The Loveland City School District is excited to launch the Loveland City Schools Athletic Facilities Master Planning Process. Born from the vision to make Loveland the premier athletic program in Southwest Ohio, and with the mission to use athletics to advance the education goals of the district – school administrators in conjunction with the Loveland Athletic Boosters will begin in January to engage district parents and community members to assess district athletic facility needs.
“It all begins with listening,” said Loveland District Director of Student Athletics Julie Renner. “Listening to our students, listening to our parents, listening to our community and our coaches – all to gain a comprehensive understanding of what the district needs to focus on for our athletic facilities beyond the tennis courts that we are in the process of getting bids on to construct. That project is moving forward. You can’t overstate the importance of extracurricular activities in the development of our students; this process is really about enriching the total experience our Tigers have while at Loveland.”
Beginning in March, the district plans to prioritize needed facility projects, and by April a presentation should be set to share with the entire Tiger community. Project design and budget solidification is targeted for May through August.
You can stay connected to this process by visiting the Loveland High School website, and clicking “Athletic Facilities Master Plan” under the left navigation (bottom link), to get latest updates, review community engagement data, and offer feedback on the process.
“This is the perfect time to be engaging our community in order to cast the future of athletics in the school district,” said Loveland Assistant Superintendent Keith Koehne. “We have seen with the planning for our new tennis courts at the high school that a comprehensive Facilities Master Plan can help guide all of our athletic facilities for the next 10 years. Upon completion, we believe we will achieve the hallmarks of being the premier athletic program in Southwest Ohio – to include broad participation, quality athletic programs and outstanding facilities.”
