LAFC, the LAFC Foundation and Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Chevron) today celebrated the official unveiling of a new futsal court at Standard Middle School in Bakersfield, CA.
This marks the second futsal court Chevron has completed in partnership with LAFC and the LAFC Foundation in Bakersfield, and fourth court in total.
“LAFC and the LAFC Foundation are proud to continue to be a Force For Good in the community alongside Chevron,” LAFC Co-President and CBO Larry Freedman said. “The opportunity to have access to safe spaces to play can be truly transformational for students and young athletes, and together with Chevron we look forward to providing greater access to the world’s game in communities throughout Southern California.”
The new futsal court enhances school options for physical fitness and free play programming during regular school hours and provides more after school opportunities.
In addition to the outdoor futsal court, Chevron and the LAFC Foundation presented the school with a $10,000 donation and provided updated soccer equipment and supplies.
”We are proud to partner with LAFC on the futsal refurbishment at Standard Middle School,” said Jenny Macintosh, Soccer Sports Program Manager at Chevron. “Our partnership with LAFC continues to give local youth a safe and revitalized place to play soccer, and supports their growth both on and off the field.”
