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.
Bell Bank Park Progress
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.
The Coach's Button
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.

Tempe Union HS Golf Fundraiser
The Lloyd Sports + Engineering team recently sponsored Hole #5 at the Tempe Union High School District (TUHSD) Education Foundation's golf tournament fundraiser. Lloyd's donation specifically went towards the various TUHSD Marching Bands, who play a critical and entertaining part of many high school sporting events. This successful event was hosted on a beautiful day at the Arizona Grand Resort Golf Course in Phoenix, AZ.
Queen Creek High School #3 (QCHS#3) construction is underway! This will be a very large campus with multiple classroom and administrative buildings, a new track and field housing football and soccer, a softball field, and a baseball field. Shout out to CORE1983, for these updated drone photos of the construction progress. We want to highlight our partners on this project: Orcutt | Winslow, Core Construction, the Town of Queen Creek and the Queen Creek Unified School District.
Construction on Maricopa High School #2 continues to make great progress. Photos show the site mass graded, classroom and administrative buildings starting to take shape, and the parking lot nearly ready to be paved. Special thanks to Chasse for these awesome drone photos of the project site. Bring us all the drone images!
We want to shower thanks on our partners on this project; Orcutt | Winslow, Chasse Building Team, the City of Maricopa and the Maricopa Unified School District.
A few weeks ago we shared photos of the new facility ribbon cutting for Sunnyslope High School, in the Glendale Union High School District (click here if you missed it). This week we want to share images of this new facility, a three-story, 72,000 square foot classroom building.
During the design and construction of the building, school was in session. It was imperative that the design did not affect the current school operations and the construction disturbance was minimal to the active school site around the new improvements.
Thanks again to Orcutt|Winslow and McCarthy Building Companies for another successful partnership.
