|Since 1996 the West Chester Area Sports Association has provided a recreational facility for more than 9.000 participants (ages 6-80) each year involved in soccer, football, baseball, softball and lacrosse. This privately operated facility has also hosted various other events from high school sports to numerous community affairs such as Sheriff's Department canine training.|
These beautiful fields were the brainchild of Addie & Alvy Kelly, proprietors of Kelly's Sports in West Chester. We owe a great debt of gratitude to the Kelly's for their vision and generosity which has provided our league with many years of enjoyment playing softball.
