Peninsula Soccer was founded in 1974 with the aim of bringing together diverse communities at a grassroots level through sport and shared values. Currently, it has approximately 600 players from the local area, predominantly aged between 5-18. Their playing fields are the backdrop for their young athletes to interact, play, and engage in team sports.
Over recent years, increased rainfall has caused hundreds of cancelled hours in practice time, game play, and outdoor activities. This has resulted in kids staying at home inactive and away from the physical, mental, and cross-social benefits they find on the field.
In an effort to fund the construction of a new weather-proof turf field for its players, Peninsula Soccer need to raise funds to install a turf field at the clubs home on Vancouver Island.
