DYSA Community Investments

DYSA Community Investments

    Durango Youth Soccer Association was established in 1993.  From very early, DYSA partnered with both the 9-R School District and the City of Durango Parks and Recreation Department to create athletic fields. 

    Riverview Sports Complex

   In 1995, DYSA committed $5,000 to toward the development of the Riverview Sports Complex.  That facility is currently managed and maintained by the Department of Parks and Recreation under an agreement with the 9-R School District. The field at Park Elementary is similarly managed and maintained by the Department of Parks and Recreation.  When the City succumbed to the demands of the organic parks group, DYSA stood by the Department of Parks and Recreation in opposition to applying organic methods to athletic fields.  Nevertheless, Riverview was included in the organic experiment. After the near destruction of the fields resulted, the organic experiment was abandoned, and the Parks and Recreation Department was able to restore the facility.  At the time, DYSA offered to contribute to the restoration effort, but was not called upon to help pay the cost of restoration. Today, under the management and maintenance of the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Riverview facility is probably the best natural turf athletic facility in Durango.
