Our Purple & White Boosters are already in full swing working on fundraisers for our student-athletes. They need volunteers! They have a section on our webpage (click "more") and their contact information can be found under the Officers tab. We are currently selling ads for our Fall Sports Media Guide as well as looking for volunteers to assist with concessions.
UPDATE ON TURF:
If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram - you know that the City of Portland informed us this week that the install for our new turf has been delayed. It was originally scheduled to begin July 16th (this past ).
This is the most recent information we have received from them:
8/7 -10th: Remove and dispose field
8/13 - 16th: Re-grade / Roll Existing Base
8/16 - 8/30: Install Turf
Regular season opens on . It is their hope that we are not impacted for regular season. Currently this does impact all of our our pre-season and athletic staff is working diligently to minimize the negative impact to our student-athletes. Coaches will keep teams updated as will I through various media outlets. If you have any questions or concerns, please know all fields are controlled by the City of Portland Rec Dept. and this project is under their control (not Deering HS or Deering Athletics) While I will assist in any way I can to help you get information, your best avenue is to contact the Rec Department directly. They have agreed to make themselves available to answer your questions/concerns. They can be reached at:
Ethan Owens CPRP, CPSI, AOLCP
Parks Assistant Director, Athletic Facilities and Playground/Courts Manager
City of Portland - Parks, Recreation and Facilities Management Dept.

We look forward to seeing you on the fields!
