Review for Second Chance Fields, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have two children who are very involved in sports. My son plays Lacrosse on a team that uses the field at Del Norte High School. Prior to Second Chance Fields replacing the lower sports field, the fields were dangerous, very dangerous, extremely dangerous. My son's cleats would get caught on the mesh almost every practice. One of his friends was injured pretty badly due to the mesh, holes and uneven ground. I thought about pulling my son out of his most loved sport to protect him from a potential injury or even move him to another team, but he refused since all of his friends play on his team and pulling him out completely when his goal is to get a college scholarship to play Lacrosse seemed counterproductive. I was irritated and frustrated that a newer school, especially in an expensive area would have such horrible fields, and in all honesty, the school didn't seem to care.

I am thankful that Second Chance Fields stepped in. I am not sure why they chose Del Norte out of all of the schools that need their help, but I am glad that they did. Now I can rest easy knowing that my son won't be getting injured from the field. My son has told me many times how much he loves the new field - amazing job Second Chance Fields and thank you once again!
