Natural grass field and dirt / cinder track
State of the art all-weather turf and track surfaces
Used by football in the fall, then must be left alone for most of the spring for grass regeneration to take place. Playing surface is uneven. Must be lined weekly for practices / games.
The all-weather turf will allow the surface to be used year round by football, soccer, lacrosse and rugby. The field will be more safe for competitors due to an even playing surface, and requires no weekly painting.
The cinder track must be continually maintained against weather conditions and produces dust that can be dangerous for competitors. The surface must be lined weekly for competition.
Runners will compete on a level, standard surface that is weather resistant. No weekly painting is necessary and it is easy to maintain.
