Athletic Fields: "Tino Leto" Fields

On January 1, 2011, The Southern Chester County Soccer Association entered into a 10-year agreement with The Kennett Area Park Authority to renovate, maintain, and manage the “Tino Leto” fields at Anson B. Nixon Park.

The Southern Chester County Soccer Association (SCCSA) has been promoting youth soccer in Southern Chester County since 1977.  The club gives children from ages 4 through 17 the opportunity to forge friendships, learn teamwork, and grow through the challenges of recreation and travel soccer programs.
