Our Purpose

To be the voice of our industry by promoting the benefits of synthetic turf systems.


Founded in 2003, the STC assists buyers and end users with the selection, use and maintenance of synthetic turf systems in sports field, golf, municipal parks, airports, landscape and residential applications. It is a resource for current, credible, and independent research on the safety and environmental impact of synthetic turf, as well as technical guidance on the selection, installation, maintenance, and environmentally responsible disposal of synthetic turf. Membership includes builders, landscape architects, testing labs, maintenance providers, manufacturers, suppliers, installation contractors, infill material suppliers and other specialty service companies.

The infrastructure of the STC lies within its Four Pillars structure. The goal of the STC Four Pillars is to align the strategic priorities and action initiatives with the efforts of the STC Board of Directors, Board Members/Committee Liaison, Committee and Task Force Chairs and staff members. The intent of this alignment is to encourage and support participation as well with its broad spectrum of members.
