Sporturf Keeps You Training

It is important for athletes to remember that varying up your workout routine is key to staying motivated and continuously improving, but how do you keep it interesting when your environment limits you? You’re training on the same old surface, in poor weather and the results just aren’t there.

We all know an hour of the same monotonous reps over and over again is not something many people would run and jump out of bed for. Workouts need to be new, challenging and most of all fun! If they aren’t, Netflix and potato chips will always sound like a better alternative.

Performing agility training on synthetic turf will allow you to train in exciting and challenging new ways, making workouts something you look forward to and something that is going to provide results. With Sporturf™ supplying both indoor and outdoor synthetic turf, weather is no longer an obstacle for your fitness development.

Not only does indoor synthetic turf provide more opportunities for variety, it provides better support and is visually appealing compared to your typical concrete or rubber gym floor. Sporturf’s solid product design and available color options, make our products a must have item in gyms and CrossFit.

In the sports world we know the appropriate playing surface can make all the difference in an athlete’s performance and career. Which is why Sporturf™ is here with turf for every application. The Sporturf™ team of highly qualified sales managers strategically placed across the United States will help you select the perfect synthetic turf for you next project. We know that our turf is the most durable and highest performing product on the market. We will deliver your project on time, on required spec and within budget.

Worldwide Turf Canada Installs Their First Project in Manitoba

Recently Sporturf™ dealer Worldwide Turf Canada installed their very first project in Manitoba. Steve Halbert and his team installed the project at the Gateway Recreation Centre in Winnipeg, MB. The center consists of two year-round indoor skating rinks, two outdoor hockey rinks, one indoor soccer pitch, four mini soccer fields, three regulation soccer fields, seven ball diamonds, and two outdoor asphalt hockey pens. The Gateway Centre is a true one-stop-shop for the ultimate sports fanatic.

When they decided to update their facility with synthetic turf, they knew that the only company for the job was Sporturf and Worldwide Turf Canada.

Gateway chose Sporturf™ FastGrass AT740 and installed 14,400 square feet of the padded/non-infill turf.

AT740 has all the advantages of previous turf generations and performs even higher in wear and resistance tests. The blend of nylon and polyethylene is an almost perfect 50/50 combination. This gives you the true ball roll of a traditional field, with the softness of the new generation rubber-filled turf. The fact that there is no rubber infill makes maintenance easier and cleaner. These systems can also be portable with added Velcro seams.

Hot Spring Chooses Sporturf

Sometimes we get a chance to get a little bit more information about an install and the motivation behind it. We spoke with our dealer Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals about his recent install in Hot Springs to learn more about the project and get some feedback from the customers.

The project was as follows:

  • Product Installed-PowerHouse 46oz
  • Size of Installation-81,000 SF
  • Location-Hot Springs, AR
  • Difficulties/obstacles overcome-15” of rain during project work
  • Why did the turf need to be replaced?-The former field was seven years old and falling apart.

When asked why they chose to go with Sporturf, Hot Springs School District Deputy Superintendent Lloyd D. Jackson said, “After visiting a few schools in our area that had Sporturf (fields), we were convinced that this was the quality of product we wanted to go with.  We also were impressed with the professionalism and commitment of the Midwest team in past projects. “

Furthermore, Jackson told us what they hoped to accomplish, “We wanted to first class field to accompany our World Class approach to educating our students.  Our board decided that they wanted to showcase the best in all areas of our schools–academically and athletically.”

When asked about feedback from the community Jackson finished with this statement, “The community has been very complimentary of the work that has been done on our football field.  It is a source of pride for our district.”

We at Sporturf strive to provide quality service with quality products to each one of our customers, no matter the size of the project. With that in mind, please consider Sporturf for your synthetic turf sports needs.

SCG Fields Installs Multipurpose Soccer and Football Field in North Miami

Recently SCG Fields, LLC worked with North Miami Athletics to install a Sporturf™ multipurpose soccer and football field in Miami, Florida.  Officials from North Miami Athletics worked the SCG and Sporturf team to choose a color for the coaches’ boxes that would very closely match the newly resurfaced track.

The turf system that was selected consisted of Sporturf™ GameChanger paired with an alternative infill called Envirofill from US Greentech and a ProPlay shock pad from Schmitz Foam Products.  The entire project was purchased through our partnership with NJPA.

SCG Fields, LLC is a sports field specialty construction contractor that handles all phases of natural and synthetic turf jobs for professional, collegiate, and high school facilities, from excavation and sub base through installation and maintenance. They are one of the nation’s most trusted sources for superior quality construction of highly engineered natural grass and synthetic turf sports fields.  Sporturf is proud to team with top quality partners across North America for both indoor and outdoor projects. 

Sporturf™ GameChanger is very similar to natural grass; our advanced yarn provides resilience and strength at the same time, while maintaining a brilliant appearance. The fiber has exceptional split resistance compared to conventional turf fibers. This increases the performance in sliding, ball roll, ball bounce and durability making our product one of the best on the market today.

Grants Pass All-Sports Park Soccer Field

Sporturf™ dealer Dale Collett of Synthetic Turf Consulting installed this soccer field for Grants Pass High School in Grants Pass, OR in 2017.  Dale and his crew utilized over 100,000 square feet of PowerHouse synthetic turf to complete this project, including prefabricated lines.

In the United States, Soccer is one of the most rapidly growing sports and around the world it is by far the most popular sport surpassing basketball and football. This is where the need for synthetic turf becomes paramount. Natural grass fields simply cannot withstand the constant play.

Sporturf has the ability to provide a FIFA quality product and our quality standards translate to a winning surface. We bring a complete solution to you and your team through comprehensive evaluation and understanding your needs.

PowerHouse, the turf installed on the field, is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

Features:
