East Los Angeles College Sets the Bar with FieldTurf

Long lasting relationship with FieldTurf stands out within community.

Monterey Park, CA, September 28, 2011 --(PR.com)-- East Los Angeles College has recently surpassed the decade mark in its tenure with FieldTurf, and continues to be thrilled with the decision of installing this revolutionary product on its field. With the school’s soccer team playing on FieldTurf all these years, the continuity and familiarity with the system has enabled the program to yield positive results.

“FieldTurf has been a part of East LA for the last 10 years, and we’ve been so fortunate to see our student athletes flourish on the turf,” said East Los Angeles College head soccer coach Eddie Flores. “What’s so remarkable is the amount of usage our field undergoes. Between all extracurricular activities that take place, the field withstands the usage beautifully and maintains a crisp and sharp look. Best decision we’ve made as an athletic department!”

The college maintains a very high usage rate, as extra-curricular activities dominate the schedule – often resulting in the field being used for the majority of the useable hours in a school week. FieldTurf is built to withstand such a high amount of volume, as its patented system is designed to create a durable product that continues to deliver the very highest in performance – even after numerous years and thousands of hours of usage. The field at East Los Angeles College also has to endure tough weather conditions because of the southern California heat that blankets the region throughout the summer months. With FieldTurf, little maintenance is required, and no added chemicals or preservatives are needed to keep the field fresh. The result, a field that’s just right for East Los Angeles College.

With over 4,000 organizations across North America committing to FieldTurf, East Los Angeles College is yet another example of a college program getting it right. Success on the field starts with the field, and FieldTurf has proven to be the choice of champions.
