Breakup Leaves Youth Soccer Org. Scrambling for Fields

Uuu 513 Ab Headshot

When a San Pedro, Calif., youth soccer league severed ties with the American Youth Soccer Organization earlier this year, the Field of Dreams soccer complex was caught in the middle.

Following a series of disagreements with the local AYSO director, the San Pedro youth soccer team parted ways with the governing organization, reestablishing itself as Harbor Youth Soccer Club, a member of the nonprofit FRAM Soccer Club.

The $1.5 million, 10-acre complex was built in 2002 and has received approximately $50,000 in maintenance funding from AYSO over the years. The Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department oversees the facility and scheduling, and announced last week that it would be granting Harbor Youth Soccer League a one-year exclusive use permit.
