Fields for All
Fields For All is a field building collaborative between Operation Pitch Invasion and the Portland Timbers and Thorns Stand Together community platform. With the help of sponsors adidas and Providence Health and Services, Fields For All builds 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 identifies 'recreation deserts' – that is, communities under-served by recreational activities for kids – and fills them with safe, healthy and high quality playing surfaces. There is a strong 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.
