Bell Bank Park hosted the Inside-Outside Classic tournament this past weekend. It's so satisfying to see the teams out on the pitch after all our hard work. Look for more updates on Bell Bank Park as youth, adults, and amateur sports teams put the largest sports complex in the USA to use.

We have teamed up with ASU once again on their new NCAA Beach Volleyball Facility, and construction is nearly complete! Lloyd is honored to have maintained a solid relationship with Arizona State University for so many years. We first partnered with ASU on the improvements to the Sun Devil Stadium field back in 1995. Also thanks to our partner Woodruff Construction for their great work in bringing this facility to life.
Check out all the details in this article written by ASU.
The Oakland Roots Soccer Club have secured a fantastic new home at the former Oakland Raiders Training Center for their upcoming 2022 training season. Over the past year, the Lloyd Sports + Engineering team assisted the soccer club by providing sports facility analysis and evaluation on several Oakland area sites for their new practice home. The study also aided the Roots with insights to what their growing soccer club would need, in the years to come. This high level facility will be an exciting opportunity and important stepping stone on the Roots path to success!

It's Opening Day at Bell Bank Park! Monday was the first official "Open House" where the soccer fields were open with athletes on the pitch. Pickleball players were trying to "stay out of the kitchen" while others were kicking up sand in the Volleyball courts. We're excited to see this dream of Legacy Cares finally come to life.

The Lloyd Sports + Engineering team is pleased to have led the third project for Yuba City School District, which included the repair and resurface of the synthetic track and field at Gray Avenue Middle School, in Yuba City, CA.
Lloyd was asked to evaluate and develop the best approach to modernize the school and community use track. This recently completed project included the removal of the former synthetic running and jumping surfaces; repairs to underlying pavements; minor draining repairs and upgrades; refreshing of the field event areas; the installation of a new cushioned polyurethane, eight-lane all weather track surface; and site modifications to meet accessibility requirements.
Lloyd worked with Harrington Associates Architects, Northstar Construction, and Beynon Sports, and the District to deliver an outstanding project prior to the wet winter weather season.
Big things are happening at the St Anthony High School Athletic complex. Demolition has kicked off a 10-million-dollar reconstruction of the Saint’s historic football field in Long Beach, California. Lloyd Sports + Engineerings designs for a new track and field stadium, team training and locker room facilities, event restrooms, parking and student gathering spaces are just a few months away from reality. We would like to recognize our partners in this exciting project; Shea Family Foundation, TVS Architecture and Slater Builders.
The contractors at Legacy Sports Bell Bank Park are racing towards the finish line! Field construction is wrapping up, soccer netting and lights are in place, pickleball courts are painted, and the champion pickleball court is nearly finished. It's great to see how these little details have advanced from design into construction, and have evolved into a living sports facility in Mesa, AZ. Check out these great evening photos by Zach Plum with Lloyd Sports + Engineering.
In our most recent post on Carson City High School Track and Field renovation, we mentioned an irrigation feature called the "Coach's Button". Here's a shallow dive into what that looks like.
Coach's buttons have traditionally been used to control baseball infield moisture control sprinkler valves. These buttons give the facility users access to run the irrigation system in limited locations without giving them access to the entire irrigation control system. Lloyd Sports & Engineering has been applying these same control systems to synthetic turf cooling systems. The cooling system coach's buttons allow the coach or other authorized staff the ability to cool the synthetic turf with the push of a button. The buttons, when pressed, operate irrigation sprinkler valves located in the synthetic turf. The buttons are preset for the desired runtime and also have a "lockout" time where the button can not be pressed again to prevent over watering. These photos are examples of a few different installations we have recently completed.
