Field of the Year

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.

Please read the instructions carefully and then download the application. Additionally, the STMA PCI is required for the Field of the Year program; however, only the scores need to be transferred to the application – the full PCIs do not need to be attached. Click here for the PCI assessment form.
