Crown Point YMCA Brings 5-a-Side Soccer to Community
Urban Soccer Park
The Dean & Barbara White Southlake YMCA added (2) fields for their programs. They are going to use the 60x100 fields for their members, the local clubs, camps, and to provide a safe place for practicing and playing soccer. The YMCA received this land from the local Park and Rec department to add to their facilities. They included netting, lights, sideline goals, benches, bleachers, trash cans, and their logo in the center circle.
Location: Crown Point, Indiana
The YMCA had 3 Goals in Mind When Working with Urban Soccer Park:
To provide a safe place environment for kids to play
To create an environment where anyone can learn to play no matter the skill level
To be able to use the fields for all ages
The YMCA really wanted to maximize the usage of their facilities and saw the Urban Soccer Park fields as a way to provide access to soccer without needing to build a full-size soccer field. All of the accessories that were included are used to make the players and spectators feel at home. The 60x100 fields allow usage for 5v5 length-wise but provides enough space in order to split each field in half and play 3v3. That way no matter how many people showed up, there would always be something you can do.
