Director of O’Fallon Parks and Recreation Testimonial Header

"Purchasing through NJPA allowed us to purchase the fields at a significant savings of 25 percent or so, and saved time to spec and bid the product. We had better control over the product as well. It saved us from cutting an entire field out of our project due to cost."

Athletic Director, Springfield College Testimonial Header

“The Shaw Sports Turf field allows us to continue to provide a first-class experience to our student-athletes. The multi-use surface allows our student-athletes to play on the surface for extended time periods, regardless of the weather. It is a terrific recruiting tool for our coaches to say that our student-athletes compete on a state-of-the art safe surface. Shaw’s team was very professional to work with and communicated with us throughout the process,”

Dr. Craig Poisson

Athletic Director, Springfield College

Director of Communications, Simmons College Testimonial Header

“These fields are above the Charles River, so we were especially concerned about fertilizers and other toxins that might be used on a natural grass field. We also appreciated the conservation of water and cost savings by using a synthetic field that needs little to no extra water. We took the extra measure to protect the safety of our student-athletes, and the thousands of others who will use these fields in the years to come. A state of the art facility using a surface such as the Shaw Sports Turf fields gives Simmons College and Brighton High School Athletics a decided advantage over its opponents, and it also enables us to be a candidate to host conference, state, and national post-season matches”

Jeremy Solomon

Director of Communications, Simmons College

“Maintaining our grass fields was too difficult. Switching to Shaw Sports Turf was only logical. We were already familiar with the product, so it was a natural choice for us.”

Athletic Director, Stillwater High School Testimonial Header

“We used to struggle especially with field regeneration from one season to the next, specifically from spring to fall sports since Lacrosse teams also play in the summer. But now that the school’s sports schedules are no longer dependent on the condition of the fields, scheduling is no longer an issue. We can have four levels of football and three levels of both boys and girls soccer all using the Shaw Sports Turf fields as needed with no problems.”

Head Football Coach, Fulton High School Testimonial Header

“It’s a multi-use stadium now. We can use it for a lot of different events and not worry about the wear and tear of a grass field. The Shaw Sports Turf field is a time-saver for me and for our staff. In mowing season on a grass field, we were mowing it usually every other day and painting it for game nights. It’s a time saver for us and obviously, it saves money for us, as well.”

Rob Black

Assistant Director of Athletics, Johns Hopkins University Testimonial Header

“Our Practice Field is the most heavily used field on campus. With operational hours of nearly 17 hours a day, this field serves not only our student-athletes but a variety of recreational sports, campus groups and youth camps. We knew it was time to replace the turf and maintain our commitment to the students and groups that call the field home. Being able to provide consistent surfaces on both Homewood Field and the Practice Field allows our programs to move seamlessly between fields throughout the year. We feel this provides our student-athletes a competitive advantage in having multiple venues to prepare in their pursuit of NCAA Championships. Johns Hopkins University is recognized as one of our country’s finest institutions. Hopkins Athletics prides itself on providing student-athletes the same world-class education and experience on the playing field as they receive in the classroom. Our continued partnership with Shaw Sports reflects that commitment to our student-athletes and campus community.”

“The turf is beautiful and the installation went extremely well. We wanted a field that had been scientifically tested, and we know that Shaw Sports Turf takes pride in the research and development of their products. The Baltimore Ravens have a stunning indoor practice field by Shaw Sports Turf, so we figured that it has to be as good as or better than any other synthetic turf field we could purchase. Our fans are what make things like this happen, when it needs to happen. We needed this facility, and they stepped up and provided the funds and support. We couldn’t do it without our fans,”

Tom Gabbard

Head Baseball Coach, Seaman High School Testimonial Header

“I’ve been here for over 22 years. That’s over 22 years of dragging hoses, push mowing, fertilizing, and more. All those hours were counterproductive, so making the move to Shaw Sports Turf was a no-brainer. It allowed us to focus and spend more time practicing baseball. By adding the TruHop system, we were able to gain 30 minutes of practice time each day. Over the course of a week, we’re getting an extra day of practice.”

Steve Bushnell

Head Baseball Coach, Seaman High School

Associate Director of Athletics for Facilities and Operations, Georgetown University Testimonial Header

“This field is in use from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. almost every day. We chose Shaw Sports Turf because we recognized the quality of the company and the products they provide.”

Brian McGuire

Associate Director of Athletics for Facilities and Operations, Georgetown University

Athletic Director, Mt. Paran Christian School Testimonial Header

“It was a two-year process. Other schools have installed synthetic turf and it piqued our interest. With the generous donation from two Mount Paran Christian families, this provided a major piece in the development of our athletic facilities and we couldn’t be happier with our Shaw Sports Turf field. From a football perspective, we can practice every day on the field where we play our games, which is different from a practice field. It gives us an advantage because the landmarks (yard lines, hash marks) are consistent and it helps our receivers, secondary, and linebackers improve their performance. It also means when we are in the goal line or red zone periods during practice, the field is properly marked and gives us the feel of being in a real game situation. The Shaw Sports Turf field provides a new standard for athletics at MPCS. The product is the most technologically advanced and exceeds what’s out there and it shows our commitment to athletics. It had a big impact on our school, both on, and off, the field. We looked at every company out there. We believe Shaw Sports Turf offers a superior product, it is a local company, and they differentiated themselves with their technology and responsiveness to our needs.”

Mitch Jordan

Athletic Director, Mt. Paran Christian School

Ken Sparks

Head Football Coach, Carson-Newman University

Athletic Director, Noble and Greenough School Testimonial Header

“It directly impacted our ability to host events. It also put us at a competitive disadvantage with other teams that were already playing on turf. The way the game is now played, it has become a turf sport. It was important to the school that our teams be able to play at the highest level on an appropriate surface. Our state-of-the-art Shaw Sports Turf field brings attention to our school and our campus. It opens minds to what we are about. In helping to promote our values and mission, the field has an impact on potential students by demonstrating our commitment to our athletic programs.”

Alex Gallagher
