Parent group breaks ground on first of many South Florida youth soccer fields (includes video story)

There will soon be a newly renovated place for kids to play soccer in Kendall. On Thursday morning, volunteers broke ground on a new field at the Killian Palms Soccer Complex on Southwest 104th Street and 99th Avenue.

The fundraising effort comes from a group led by two Miami Krew Youth Soccer Club parents, Patrick and Kristen McMahon, along with a Columbus High School alumni group, Adelante 2026.

Christopher Corey leads the alumni group and was also the liaison to the city of Miami for the successful 2026 World Cup host-city bid. “We have four years,” Corey said Thursday, “to really look the part.”

The alumni group would like more parents to get involved in the youth soccer community and join the effort to update the fields for children to play on, here in Miami-Dade County.
