We’ve spoken to numerous athletic directors, booster clubs, coaches and administrators nationwide who passionately want to bring a synthetic turf field to their school. They recognize that the durable, lush and safe grass‐like surface allows more students to play and practice sports and increase their fitness levels. Able to be used in the rain or during the months when grass doesn’t grow, synthetic turf fields also accommodate multiple sports and activities, conserve water and reduce maintenance costs.

However, raising funds has become more challenging in light of the economic conditions of the past few years. That’s why the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) has created this webinar to help you raise money and educate the community about the benefits of a synthetic turf sports field. Our panelists will discuss fundraising tips, advice demonstrating the viability of the project, educational materials and overall recommendations to help your group move forward with its dream of obtaining a synthetic turf field.
