Fields For All is a field building collaborative between Operation Pitch Invasion and the Portland Timbers and Thorns Stand Together community platform. Together with sponsors adidas, JELD-WEN Windows & Doors, KeyBank, Providence Health and Services and Ross Electric, Fields For All plans to help build youth soccer fields and futsal courts each year following a collective mission to provide local youth with safe and organized outlets for play.
Fields For All aims to identify 'recreation deserts' – that is, communities under-served by recreational activities for kids – and fill them with safe, healthy and high quality playing surfaces. Its work will focus on areas with open community access and neighborhood support. In addition, the project will target locations in close proximity to schools, youth clubs and recreation centers, providing ongoing programming to support organized and structured play for local area youth.
