Spring Frenzy Recap

Active Children Portland held our annual Spring Frenzy at Providence Park on Saturday, May 16th. Over 160 students came out to participate in drills, skill stations, and scrimmages. The kids were thrilled to have the opportunity to play on the same field as the Portland Timbers and Thorns!

We utilized the entire soccer field as Active Children Portland staff and coaches led students through warm ups, practice stations, and actual scrimmages. We’d like to thank Sunset Audi for donating the field. Check out this short video showing Spring Frenzy in full swing! Spring Frenzy Video

Students had a great time at Spring Frenzy, and were ecstatic to be visited by Timbers Joey! Additionally, students had the opportunity to showcase their different service-learning projects. It was a great opportunity for students to showcase their creativity and highlight their desire to promote change in their communities.
