Abstract/Contents:Discusses a growing demand in the United States for "space to carry on athletic activities." Emphasizes a maintenance need that runs counter to this demand, referring to "the prudent use of a particular facility that allows for the field to be taken out of play periodically so that cultural practices can be employed to keep the fields in good condition so that play can be carried on in a relatively safe environment." Identifies volunteerism, "properly organized and managed," as a potential mean of offsetting demands for increased funding. Highlights communication as a fundamental of establishing a volunteer-run program, stating that "people don't know about things until they are told and they can't give you something until you tell them what you want." Provides a 12-point outline on how to begin a volunteer program.
