Seasonal Drop-In Practice ProgramA seasonal drop-in practice program exists to support youth soccer at several athletic-oriented park sites. These “drop-in” areas are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The program is evaluated seasonally for continuation based on the following criteria: parking impact on park use and adjacent neighborhoods, litter, impact on scheduled athletic field use and compliance with park rules and local ordinances. Drop-in areas are closed if athletic fields are closed due to rain or wet conditions. View seasonal drop-in practice field locations and maps..
