  • If the field is dry, we will be parking on the upper soccer fields.
  • If the fields are wet, additional parking will be in the parking lots of the Crusader Gym (407 S. Pearson Lane) and The Flower Ranch (901 S. Pearson Lane). You will be directed to park at one of these locations as needed and shuttles will be provided.
