Keep our Fields Clean - Carry In Carry Out

AYSO is joining forces with the Park District of Oak Park and the Oak Park Youth Baseball/Softball Association in trying to be more conscious about generating less waste, using more reusable containers, increasing recycling, assuming responsibility for the trash we make and taking better care of our parks. A Blue Bag Program was initiated by AYSO in 2009 to encourage soccer participants and their families to take all recyclables brought into the park during sports activities home with them. We have taken this program one step further by implementing a Carry In/Carry Out Waste Minimization program. The success of this program depends on the cooperation of all coaches, players and families. We need your help. Please take a look the full policy and instructions here.
