Birdland Park Mini-Pitch​

Des Moines, Iowa, USA

Kick It Forward Partners with Musco to Bring First Mini‑Pitch System to Des Moines

The Challenge

As part of its initiative to help develop youth soccer players on and off the field, Kick It Forward wanted to provide safe places for young athletes to play in Des Moines and ultimately throughout all of Iowa. With help from Kum & Go, the U.S. Soccer Foundation, Hansen Company, and the City of Des Moines, Kick It Forward was able to collect funds to begin the project at Birdland Sports Park, but needed to develop a comprehensive system that would allow children to play safely.

The Solution

“Our goal is to bring several Mini-Pitches to neighborhoods throughout the Des Moines area. We see and hear about the need for accessible, safe places to play, and the Birdland neighborhood is the perfect spot for the first Mini-Pitch.”
