Covered Training Facility at Cloverdale Athletic Park
Surrey United SC is pleased to announce the vision for further Cloverdale Athletic Park facility improvements aimed specifically at providing athletes a covered facility for multi-sport programming opportunities. In collaboration with other local community sports organizations, namely, Surrey Minor Ball Hockey, India Field Hockey Club and Surrey Lacrosse Association, SUSC has taken the lead in finding solutions for the needs of its membership for covered practice and program space. This cost-effective infrastructure improvement project will include upgrades to cover the current lacrosse box with potential for the inclusion of a covered basketball facility at the southwest corner of Cloverdale Athletic Park. These upgrades will support SUSC players with the opportunity for covered practice space for our youngest age groups and will provide the support necessary for athletes of all ages in SUSC’s developing futsal and adaptive soccer programming for youth players of all ages, regardless of rain or snow.
As a Club, it continues to be our aim to connect with and support the community within which we operate and this facility improvement project allows us the unique opportunity to work with other community sports organizations and develop supportive resources and options for our athletes to participate in multi-sport activities to compliment their soccer development. Cloverdale has thriving, growing sports community and SUSC is proud to continue its leadership in seeking opportunities for facility and infrastructure development and improvements to support the community in this manner. It is the belief of SUSC and our community partners that an improvement in Cloverdale’s sports facilities will translate into higher participation rates overall and will also contribute to retention of youth athletes into their teenage years. Keeping kids in sports is a key and common objective of all parties involved in this initiative. Please watch for future updates as we work to secure approvals to move forward with this exciting vision.
