HEAT INJURY PREVENTION

PRACTICE FIELDS
Practice Fields will be assigned by our Rec Age Group Coordinator.

McAllister Park: U10 and younger teams will receive first consideration at McAllister Park. Only after these teams have been accommodated will any U11 and above teams be assigned space at McAllister Park.

LBJ: There are 3 large practice areas with full-sized goals available at LBJ. This is primarily for U11 and above teams.

Specht Road: We have many fields available for practice at our Specht Road complex. Many of these fields are lighted and we can accommodate teams of any age level at this complex.

Teams desiring to practice at local schools or other fields must submit a request to NEYSO. The field and goals must be inspected prior to use.

Practice assignments will be posted emailed to all coaches.

Please use your assigned space and do not assume that you may use an empty field. Teams may decide to cancel practice on any given day on their own. Until the goals are set up use the approximate area that you are assigned.

*NEYSO holds the rights to the usage of McAllister park during the practice hours. If there are any issues within other organizations or entities occupying field space then please contact the following:
