About Us

CRYSP DC looks to provide sports and recreation opportunities to bridge communities, especially for underserved youth. We are especially focused on encouraging connections between residents of Capitol Hill residents and Wards 7 and 8, making the benefits of sports and team participation available to as many residents as possible.

CRYSP DC began as a neighborhood-inspired vision for playing fields, walking/biking trails, an outdoor farmer’s market pavilion, river access and other amenities in the north lots of the RFK Stadium complex. This vision addressed a key lack of field space for youth and adult sports programs in the nearby neighborhood. Based largely on our advocacy, The Fields at RFK Campus opened in May 2019. CRYSP DC made a bid to be the field operator and was awarded the contract.
