Crozet Needs more Soccer Fields

Desperately. Four teams were practicing on the one soccer field at Claudius Crozet Park. Granted, this is a temporary situation until the time changes and the teams slated for 6pm slots will actually start at the correct time, but this photo highlights the problem.

There is an opportunity here – find land for soccer fields in Crozet. Who’s up for the challenge?

  1. what Crozet needs is more ALL sports fields and not just soccer. it’s not fair to the other athletes to have a field that is not shared for all sports.

  2. @allforsports – agreed.

    @Alan Franklin – there is a field there now, that although not high quality, is being used. I used it last season, and at least two, maybe three teams are practicing there now. It’s up to the County to accept it into the Parks system, although that may not happen for a couple of years.

    There is a floodplain area behind Western Ridge that I am looking into as to who owns it and what the feasibility may be to make them into (soccer) fields – a la South Fork Soccer Park.

Something to say?
