After ten years of wear and tear, the turf used in the football and baseball stadiums was replaced and the track was resurfaced this past summer. These facilities are used daily by athletic teams, hosting more than 50 games each year. The fields are also utilized by all students in our physical education curriculum, intramural program, special school events, and for general use by our entire student population.
The new turf fields provide the safest environment for our students and athletes of other schools playing at our facility. The safety features start with the Brock Powerbase shock pad designed to protect the brain from impact injury, therefore lessening the risk of soft tissue joint injuries.
The change in turf allowed St. X to replace the field’s infill to a product called Envirofill, which is nothing like the rubber product you see at most facilities. Envirofill is a much safer and cleaner acrylic-coated material that will help with field maintenance and the health of those using the field.
