The University of Nevada – Reno began a complete overhaul to Hixson Softball Complex with the conversion of their softball field to synthetic turf. This field renovation success is a direct result of the collaborative partnership between Lloyd, JK Architecture Engineering, and University of Nevada – Reno. The project comes as the first phase of the renovation, with a new fieldhouse, press box, bleachers, and concessions planned in the near future.

Lloyd Sports + Engineering stopped by the City of Mesa's donation drop off event this year to help support the City's partnership with United Food Bank, and their Great Turkey Tuesday annual fundraising event. Lloyd donated several turkeys for this great cause to help the less fortunate this holiday season.
The Lloyd Sports + Engineering team hosted folks from the Tempe Union High School District & ADs for a thank you lunch at Nello's in Ahwatukee, AZ, this past Tuesday. The team gathered to celebrate the wonderful relationship and project successes of field conversion work over the past three years at the Mountain Pointe, Marcos De Niza, Desert Vista, Tempe High, McClintock, and Corona Del Sol High Schools. All schools converted their football fields into synthetic football/soccer fields, upgraded scoreboards and play clocks, and new paved Dzones, along with other minor site amenities which varied by each school.
The Lloyd team enjoyed working with each school, the District staff, and our partnering contractors for each year, and look forward to continuing this wonderful partnership in the years to come. A big thank you to Nello's Ahwatukee for hosting our lunch and Walt 7 Woodworking for creating the custom football boards.
Lloyd Sports + Engineering is working with SPS+ Architects, Chasse Building Team, and the Tolleson Elementary School District on their new sports facility at Arizona Desert Elementary, in Tolleson, AZ. The new campus expansion will include a multi-purpose soccer field, baseball/softball field, a new restroom/concession building, plaza entry, parking lot, landscape, ROW improvements, and associated infrastructure. When complete, the school intends to share this facility with the local Tolleson community to help promote youth play and sports.
It's that time of year for the Lloyd Sports + Engineering gang to all get together again. Our team works from many different states across the country, so we are not always collaborating in person. To remedy this, we regularly organize site visits and dinners for us to reconnect in person. Here's to another successful Lloyd weekend!

Recently in the Denver Post, they released an article on the inagural high school girls flag football season in Denver. More than 500 athletes have joined the game across the school district. Flag football is growing in popularity with both women and men, because they feel it's safer than tackle football and it's less expensive as there is less equipment needed.
