Practice Location Availability (House and Travel)
Updated: April 29, 2014
Lancaster Depew Soccer Club has 19 Travel League teams and over 40 House League teams sharing the practice and training facilities at our disposal. That's roughly 900 players at one time, so please be considerate of other club teams as we have a limited number of places to train.
Please keep the following items in mind when you use the fields:
Since we are very limited on fields, we need to be smart about their usage. Do not go on the fields when they are wet. If the fields are used when they are wet, they will be damaged for the entire season.
The younger teams should be able to find any green space for training. There are many 30x40 yard areas throughout Westwood Park and Como Park (see the red circles on the map below). A U6 House League team does not need a U8 or U10 field to train.
Please check the grid below for restrictions on training days.
The School District would like us to stay on the soccer fields and designated areas around the soccer fields.
Because of the turf installation at Westwood Park, the House League will be using alternate fields/locations for their games. The following fields will be used on Saturdays until June 21st:
Westwood Park (U8 Fields) - afternoons
Walden Pond Park (Full Sized Field) - U4/U6 - 10 AM - 12:30 PM
Hillview Elementary (U10 Fields along Tops fence) afternoons 1 PM - 4 PM
Como Lake Park (U12 Field) - 10 AM - 3 PM.
Please plan your training sessions accordingly.
Because of capital improvements around the school district, we will be unable to use Court St. Elementary, Sciole Elementary and Como Park Elementary for the entire outdoor season. In addition, the turf field installation at Westwood has caused us to lose the use of two U10 fields until the end of June. We are working with the town of Lancaster to secure more training space.
When more training facilities become available, this page will be updated and the coaches will be contacted via email.
If you have additional questions, please contact:

Como Lake Park Restrictions (until June 5th)

Como Lake Park - Circled areas represent decent areas for training.
