Carlisle School's athletic program has agreed to a long-term partnership with the Smith River Sports Complex, the school announced recently in a news release.

Carlisle will hold all soccer practices and home games at the complex this fall, as well as some of its field hockey games. In addition, Carlisle's Upper Division students, each of whom must complete 30 hours of community service before graduation, may volunteer at the complex for special events and tournaments.

"Over the past year the complex has partnered with Martinsville City Schools, Henry County Schools and Carlisle to offer our facility to the youth in our area and to improve their quality in athletics and in life," said SRSC director of operations Billy Russo. "We are excited to continue developing these partnerships."

Since Carlisle began playing at the complex, the soccer program has seen a 50-percent increase in the number of players on the roster, the release stated.
