Field Turf Campaign!

The current turf fields and track were installed in 2003 & 2004 (over 2 summers with new Track & Field facilities installed in 2003) to accommodate 17 different athletic team levels (football, boys and girls soccer, baseball, track and field and cross country) and hundreds of students athletes. In addition to games played, extensive practice usage and performances by the marching band takes place on the turf. Mater Dei also rents the fields to community groups on evenings and weekends as part of its venue management.

In 2003, the lifespan of field turf was 10 years. During these past 12 years, boys and girls lacrosse was added to the athletic program as well as outdoor athletic training, thus increasing the wear and tear on the athletic field. At this time, it is crucial to redo the field turf and track surfaces. With the original substructures in great shape, the top layer must be re-done over a two year period (2015-2016). With field turf our students see: Significantly fewer neural and cranial cervical injuries, less time lost to injury, fewer 3rd degree injuries, increased field usage and safer playing conditions, reduced water usage and maintenance costs and consistency in field conditions and parity in competition.
