Field Day – North & South Soccer Complex Fields now Available

image_name2
Goals were moved into place by a group of volunteers on Friday, March 27th on both the existing Grimes Sports Complex and the new north practice fields.  The Grimes Sports Complex near South Prairie Elementary will continue to be the location for both league games and practices.  The north fields are located just west of Northridge Elementary and will be the location for practices only.  Located at the north complex are goals and field outlines for three different sizes of fields (U6-8, U10, and U12).  There is also plenty of flat greenspace available at the north complex.  We encourage coaches to check out the north complex and consider scheduling a practice or two there if they are having troubles finding practice space/time at the Grimes Sports Complex.

Thank-you volunteers!  Thanks to all that were able to make it up to the soccer complex and help out at Field Day on Friday.  Volunteers set-up 18 fields (36 goals & nets, and 72 anchors).  This included moving 6 goals to the north complex – a lot of work to say the least but doable in just 1.5 hours with all the help.  I was impressed by the turn out and am truly grateful to live in a community where so many families are willing to volunteer their time and help out.  Everyone's help was very much appreciated!!
 
Thanks!
