Athletic Department Informed Budget Process: FY 2013 IBP Progress Report & FY 2014 IBP Budget Request
FY 2014 Remodel Request • Project Title: Softball Diamond Lights • Core Theme / Strategic Priority Supported Advance Partnerships, Relationships with Community and Business. Lights on the SB diamond will aid both the internal and external community play on the diamond and increase revenues to SLCC Athletics. • Dollars Requested: $116,000.00 • Justification: Softball skill levels have advanced, bringing more parity to the games, resulting in longer games which run into darkness. This creates game completion issues, which results in unfair playing situations and rescheduling. This also can result in skewed outcomes which may cost a team a National Tournament qualification.
FY 2014 Remodel Request • With diamond lights, we can ensure proper playing time in all situations resulting in fair and complete outcomes. The external community has leagues for elite and other local teams especially from Taylorsville, Murray and West Valley playing on the SLCC Diamond. These community leagues aid in both community exposure of SLCC and in revenues to the athletic program. Lights would allow for more community , play, increase exposure of SLCC to the external community and an increase to athletic revenues. • Project Outcome Measurements Actual use of lights at SLCC Team games, at Region 18 tournament games, and at Community league games during 2013-2014 year.
FY 2014 Remodel Request • Project Title: Softball Diamond Warning Track • Core Theme / Strategic Priority Supported Advance Partnerships, Relationships with Community and Business.

To bring our field into compliance with the NCAA Standards for a College Softball Diamond. • Project Outcome Measurements Both home and away athletes will be able to perform at the highest level without injury when running to field the ball at the fence
