Station Soccer

Soccer in the streets teams up with GreenFields to bring Station Soccer to Atlanta

With a mission to empower youth in underserved communities by providing access to soccer programs, Soccer in the Streets recently brought a bold vision to life in the city of Atlanta with the launch of ‘Station Soccer” at the Five Points MARTA Station — the first soccer field to be built inside the perimeter of a major urban transit station in the world.

“One of the biggest barriers by far to kids adopting this sport in urban neighborhoods is the transportation issue. They can’t get to games or get to practice,” Executive Director Phil Hill said. “We believe by working through transit hubs like railway stations and using them as a vehicle to get the kids between practices and games we solve that issue. So, why not build a soccer field on a train station rooftop?”

GreenFields Offers Turnkey Artificial Turf Solutions

From installation to maintenance, GreenFields is there every step of the way

Sports organizations are looking for a turf solution that will stand up to long hours of high-level play. Whether you’re trading up from a grass field to artificial turf or wondering if it’s time to replace your existing synthetic field, the decision comes with a list of questions and considerations. GreenFields offers tailor-made systems for a wide variety of sports, as well as personal service, customized installation and a long-term partnership beyond the duration of the field.

Upgrade from Grass to World-Class Turf

Generally, grass fields will begin to break down during the first season resulting in re-soding or re-seeding every season thereafter. In contrast, artificial turf allows for at least 40-50 hours per week of heavy usage, eliminating the need for replacement each season. Artificial turf reduces maintenance costs by as much as 75% compared to natural grass. GreenFields Operations Manager Herb Zabel notes that artificial turf is also more forgiving, noting “in natural grass, when something is

GreenFields’ new synthetic turf performs more like grass and could reduce leg injuries

GreenFields, the world leader in synthetic field systems, continues to lead the market in product innovation by introducing a safer synthetic playing surface called GreenFields® MX 3 STAR.    GreenFields President Guido Vliegen states, “GreenFields MX 3 STAR feels like real turf and our laboratory testing strongly suggests that it will have a significant impact on decreasing the number of lower leg injuries that players experience on synthetic turf.”

Focus on Sports Safety 

It is well known that synthetic turf fields typically provide players higher traction than natural grass.  However, NFL statistics show that lower leg injuries are more prevalent on synthetic turf than on natural grass. GreenFields addresses this problem since it has physical characteristics that are closer to natural grass than any other synthetic turf product. Richard Kent, Professor at the University of Virginia Center for Applied Biomechanics, has conducted independent testing of the new GreenFields MX product and stated, “Greenfields MX 3 STAR performed much like a natural grass field.”

Construction Update at Bates University

 

When Campus Construction Update learned that a new watering system was part of this summer’s project to replace the playing surface on Bates’ field hockey facility, our journalistic reflexes started to bark.
Why, they asked, would you irrigate artificial grass?

Well, as it turns out, it’s standard in field hockey to soak the artificial turf for games and practices (in above-freezing temperatures, anyway). The reasons involve both the quality of play and the safety of the players, explains Bates’ field hockey coach Danielle Ryder.

“The water allows the ball to move at greater speeds with a consistent roll,” she says. “It also keeps the ball on the very top layer of the turf carpet, allowing players to easily maneuver their sticks around the ball.”
