SCYSL Partners with SCUSD To Repair Soccer Fields

Important Field Updates

August 20, 2016

The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League has partnered with the Santa Clara Unified School District in an effort to begin restoring some of our school location fields to a quality that is suitable for competitive play. We identified Curtis Field, the Cabrillo Middle School Field and the Wilson Middle School Field and started repairs over the summer. The soccer league and the school district made a joint investment to reseed, turf and repair the fields. The fields were closed during the summer to allow new grass to grow into the turf and stregnthen and improve the overall quality of the fields.

We also met with the Santa Clara Parks & Recreation Department, PAL and the Santa Clara Cricket Group to formalize a field sharing schedule with the goal to prevent overuse and damage to the fields.
