About Us

Our Eastside soccer teams are grateful to have the opportunity to use the Rich May Field. Since our school does not have its own field, our students are excited to come to the Rich May field each day during the season and they appreciate being able to practice on a regulation size field to better prepare for the games. The Rich May Field is a tremendous resource for the entire East Palo Alto community and it’s great to have such a high-quality athletic facility in our own city.

There a sense of pride when you walk up to the green gates and take a look at all the people playing their sport in unison. Rich May Memorial Field represents a big sense of pride in our small town. To have such a beautiful area in a struggling community where you can come out and release some stress in the game or just to take in the good energy of the people is like no other. I’m happy and proud to be apart of this place that makes our community just a little bit better.

Rich May Field means a lot to our organization – Ravenswood Junior SC.  As the first turf field in the community  – Rich May Field means a lot to our organization.
Plus it is so important to have the lights! This is one of the best parts of the field.
Having a turf field, plus lights in East Palo Alto, brings more opportunities to our kids and gives them more time to spend enrolling in sports.
I can say that Rich May Field is the best sports project in the community.
