The Providence Academy Dome offers a state-of-the-art artificial turf field and is inflated from November through early April. The Dome provides an indoor space for many PA activities including: Kid Ventures, PE classes soccer, indoor recesses, after school activities, and athletic training times for specific sports.
The Providence community can avoid the elements while remaining active this winter by walking in the dome. It is open every morning that school is in session from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. Simply sign in at the security desk near the main office of the school and then proceed down to the dome. Get a group together for a fun time of fellowship or just take the time for your own health. Walk for a few minutes or the entire time. We just ask that you sign in so we know who is here. Please always walk or run in the direction posted for that day and follow the other rules for the dome, especially no coffee.
Families may also take advantage of this opportunity during Saturday Family Dome Time. Run around and have some fun on Saturday mornings without having to be all bundled up. This year, Saturday Family Dome Time is from 8:00 to 11:45 a.m. Simply come to the dome, sign your family in at the table near the entrance and go play. There is no charge for this activity.
During this time, the expectation is that we will have a safe family environment, so no hard baseballs, softballs, golf balls or lacrosse balls. We will also ask that the activities be contained so as to not interfere with others playing. Parents may choose to walk the outer track while their children play inside the netting. However, we ask that this be a family time, so parents should not just drop off their children. The school is not offering supervision for your children.
Dome temps depend on the outdoor temperature and will range from 30 - 55 degrees.
As a way to offset some of the operating expenses, the Dome is rented out to nearby, mission appropriate organizations in the evenings and for parts of each weekend.
