Completed just last month, the Carson City School District converted their aging synthetic turf football and soccer field to premium quality synthetic turf. The aging field included unusual grading where the crown of the field was extended after the field goal posts, creating a “shelf” and safety hazard of potentially tripping athletes. Part of the project included careful re-grading of the field to eliminate the “shelf” or drop off, making it a safer place for students to play on the field and adjacent track.
Improvements also included renovation to the drainage system, irrigation system, a full re-striping for football and soccer, and cleaning and spot repairs to the track. One non-traditional feature added to the field was sprinkler heads adjoined with a “Coach’s Button” allowing for the sprinklers to run on hot days for players, without additional work from maintenance staff. allowing for ease of use by the Carson High School athletics department. Lloyd Sports + Engineering has been pioneering this feature on multiple other projects.
All of us at Lloyd are proud to have helped Carson City School District achieve their goal and provide a field that will support the Carson City Senators for many years to come.
