A newly formed committee in Belmont County is ramping up efforts to have lights installed at the Capstone Soccer Complex.
The committee, called Lights On Capstone, was formed this past summer by town residents who wanted to help raise the money needed for the permanent lights.
Phase two of the project, said Emily Goodman Shortall, includes permanent lighting. The foundations for the lights and poles for the lights are already installed.
St. Clairsville resident and soccer mom Emily Goodman Shortall along with a group of around 10 others, are leading the committee and its many fundraising events.

The committee believes that adding field lighting will attract out of town visitors by allowing us the opportunity to hold night games and multiregional tournaments. Sports tourism is a growing niche regionally and nationally. As more communities realize the economic value of this visitor segment, new facilities have been developed to accommodate competitive sporting events designed and operated to primarily attract out-of-town visitors while having the additional benefit of hosting recreational and club programs in support of residents. Several of the County’s market characteristics including its accessibility, supply of overnight accommodations, and visitor amenities are compatible with attracting sporting events that generate economic and fiscal impacts.

In addition the SCASA is a member of Ohio North Youth Soccer Association. Both entities work closely with area civic organizations to jointly market and leverage their combined assets to attract, retain and build sports marketing events to establish a national reputation in amateur athletics and increase economic impact to the region.
