Wyoming, MI, May 01, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Godwin Heights High School is replacing its grass playing field with the Intensity S4-R Series synthetic turf system from UBU Sports®, the premier manufacturer and supplier of synthetic turf systems preferred most by NFL teams. The Fighting Wolverines — which had previously used its field exclusively for football while soccer was played at a local park — will now use the field for football, soccer, marching band as well as baseball and softball practices in the spring as needed.
“We can say that we are truly putting our students first by giving them the best of the best to play and practice on,” says Mike Porco, Athletic Director at Godwin Heights High School.
Godwin Heights will be unique in its conference as it will be the only school that has synthetic turf. “We have many athletes with speed and this new field will allow us to utilize that speed in our game plan to create a home field advantage,” Porco continues.
The Intensity S4-R Series features the HarmonyTM slit-film fibers with a rubber infill system that ensures a safe and durable playing surface. Drainage perforations in the turf allow water to move quickly through the turn and into the drainage system. Meanwhile, the exclusive multiple layer ARMOURWEAVE backing system ensures dimensional stability and long-lasting seams, while a secondary backing ensures fiber retention.
“UBU Sports is proud to provide a high-performance synthetic turf system for Godwin Heights,” says UBU Sports Regional Manager Ryan Mouw. “We are excited to add the school district to our rapidly expanding family of customers, and partnering with local businesses such as Velting Contractors, Inc., will further enhance the dependability of this new field.”
UBU Sports is a leading brand of synthetic turf surfaces for use in a variety of sporting events, including football, baseball, field hockey, soccer, rugby and lacrosse. UBU Sports’ fields serve as ground gear for teams ranging from professional franchises (New York Giants, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati Bengals, New Orleans Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos), collegiate and major indoor arena leagues to local high schools and municipalities. UBU Sports incorporates science and technology into each surface they provide, creating the ultimate ground gear for athletes.
