Pottery Field

Pottery Field is United Valley Soccer Association's 18 acre soccer complex located in Hawthorn, Pennsylvania. Hawthorn is a small, rural town situated along the Red Bank Creek in southern Clarion County.

United Valley Soccer Association finalized the purchase of 11 acres of land in November 2000 with an additional seven acres of land finalized in April 2001. Construction of four playing fields began immediately and was completed in late fall 2002. The first spring and fall soccer seasons were played on the fields in 2003.

In 2002, United Valley Soccer Association initiated a capital campaign in order to raise $100,000 to off-set the costs of the initial construction and to fund future improvements at the Pottery Field complex.  UVSA can proudly say that goal has been reached.
