Athletic Facilities Project Webpage

This webpage has been created to keep the community informed about construction-related activity for the Maret Athletic Facilities Project taking place on the grounds of the Episcopal Center for Children (ECC).

The Episcopal Center for Children (ECC) and Maret have entered into a long-term lease that will allow Maret to use the grounds behind the ECC's buildings, as well as the smallest of its four buildings, to create a multi-sport field and baseball diamond with an adjacent parking lot and team rooms. This partnership helps support ECC's mission of serving children with emotional challenges and their families. Maret plans to share the new fields with the ECC, DCPS, youth-based sports organizations in the District, and neighbors.
