Field of the Year

When the application period opens, you will be able to Click here and it will take you to our new ReviewR software.  All applications must be submitted this way.

NOTE: The STMA PCI© is required to submit for the STMA Field of the Year Awards. You will need to complete four (4) separate PCI worksheets, which you will find as a separate document here. Three of the PCIs must be conducted in-season of the individual field’s primary sport and one must be conducted in the off season of the individual field’s primary sport. It is important that you start now to track your field conditions using the PCI rather than waiting until the application is due. If you wait, you may miss the required timing of in-season and off-season.

Be recognized for your work on your natural grass sports fields through the annual Field of the Year program. Members can submit fields in five sports: baseball, football, softball, soccer, and sporting grounds (not a mainstream sport, such as lacrosse or rugby). Your submission is also independently judged by a panel of peers.

Winners receive a plaque, recognition at the STMA annual Awards Banquet and in SportsTurf Magazine, three nights hotel, media publicity, and signature clothing.
