Time for Turf in Shakopee
The Top 3 Reasons for Field Turf in Shakopee:
1. What single field related investment will impact the broadest range of programs and young athletes? Teams such as football, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball and a variety of others can utilize a turf facility…at both the youth and high school levels.
2. Surrounding communities have been investing in field turf for a number of years. In fact, they continue to invest in them. Why? It simply makes sense. There is little argument that investing in field turf makes long-term financial sense given the lower maintenance costs toward the fields. Additionally, teams need access to a facility in early spring when the weather is unpredictable. Field turf can be available for play much earlier than natural grass due to its synthetic nature and drainage systems. Finally, look around us. The list of communities who have field turf complexes (and many have multiple fields!) include: Prior Lake, Eden Prairie, Chaska, Chanhassen, Edina, Minnetonka, Lakeville, Bloomington, Burnsville…and the list goes on and on. It’s now time for Shakopee to be added to the list.
3. Although the path upon which our school district will travel is still being evaluated, this shouldn’t prevent continued investment in our youth. We need to remember that whether Shakopee supports one high school or two, we will ALWAYS be ONE school district and ONE community. An investment in field turf today will benefit our entire community…for many years to come!
