Campaign Intro & Ask

What is the Grow the
Tradition Campaign?

The "Grow the Tradition” campaign is a capital campaign raising funds for the creation of a new, standalone fieldhouse for FBA and renovations of our fields.

FBA is a cornerstone in the North side community with a long history of good sportsmanship that has strengthened the broader community.  The "Grow the Tradition" campaign is more than a new fieldhouse or mass renovation of our outdoor facilities, it is a major enhancement for the town square that has existed here for 55 years.  We invite you to learn more and to give so that we might keep this community treasure in place for the next 50 years!

The Project


  • 32,650 square feet

  • 2 Full-size High School Basketball Courts (or 4 Middle School Courts)

Denny Barrett was a volunteer coach at FBA for more than 30 years. All of Denny's children played sports at FBA and have continued their father’s legacy by coaching youth teams. The Barrett Family is now in its third generation of FBA participation.
