Complex of the Year

The STMA Sporting Grounds of the Year replaces the STMA Complex of the Year and is targeting sports turf managers who want to submit a natural turf field that hosts field hockey, rugby, lacrosse, tennis, or other "unique" field sports.

Please feel free to enter any or all of your facility's fields in the other Field of the Year categories. Please contact STMA Headquarters with any questions. 

Take pride in your profession. Submit your field for the STMA Sporting Grounds of the Year Award and garner the respect of your peers and media attention for your facility. All entry materials must be submitted in accordance with the procedures outlined for each award. All award recipients will be selected by the STMA Awards Committee made up of highly-regarded STMA professionals. 

Please contact STMA headquarters with questions at 800-323-3875.
