Practice Fields - Update 6/21/2014
U10 & Younger Teams
U10 and younger teams will play all games on grass.
Nortac does not centrally schedule practice fields for teams age U10 and below, as the numbers and sizes of players does not require large amounts of space, and there is ample availability at local schools and parks. Elementary school fields can be reserved for no cost, by going directly to the school office and filling out a usage request form. Parks can be used for no cost on a first come, first served basis. Recommended schools and parks in North Tacoma include:
