A critical element of the Marblehead community needs our support. Piper field, a multi-purpose turf field at MHS, is utilized by organizations well beyond MHS Athletics. It is a staple for graduation ceremonies, the Marblehead Band, High School and Youth Soccer, Lacrosse, Cheer, Football, Field Hockey, Flag Football, Adult Men’s Soccer, Unified Athletics, student gatherings, camps, and more. After 10 years of meticulous maintenance, the turf at Piper field reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced to meet safety and industry standards.

Our Fund the Field campaign is raising capital to:

replace the carpet and fill of the turf,
improve fencing and netting,
install end zone padding, and
increase storage space at Piper field.

Additional goals are to:

improve the sound system,
provide outdoor bathrooms, and
improve the entrance to the Field House
install a second turf field in Marblehead, allowing more activities to carry on during our ever changing New England weather.

The campaign also includes establishing a long term maintenance fund for future turf needs.

Your support will have an impact well beyond Piper field. It will also enable the activities at many other Marblehead fields to continue without adverse impact, avoiding displacement or cancellation if Piper field is closed and will make a positive, inclusive difference in the lives of so many in this beloved town.

Please join us for the community-changing event on Saturday, October 21st. There will be children's races (see separate event ticket on this site), t-shirts, giveaways, and so much more! Help us revitalize Piper Field! Thank you for your support!
