Avon High School needs a real sports field for our students and town. By installing a modern turf sports field, our children can enjoy the many benefits and values that such a field can add:

Environment: water savings/reduced pesticide use/less pollution

Return on investment: Synthetic turf has been proven to be a highly cost-effective investment. A synthetic turf field pays for itself over 3-4 years. The cost of installing and maintaining a synthetic turf field over a 20-year period (including one replacement field) is over 3x less expensive per event than the cost of a grass field.

Versatile: Maximize land use with the same surface space.
Synthetic turf promotes greater utilization of land than natural grass, as you can achieve more with the same surface space.

All-weather use: Ideal for inclement weather conditions.
Preparing and maintaining natural turf can be particularly challenging in cold or very hot weather. Natural turf is generally in poor condition after long winter months, requiring extensive maintenance and re-leveling. Hot weather seasons experiencing drought face significant water shortages. Synthetic turf playing fields fields remain uniform and consistent, season after season, and can be used within hours of installation–without worry of damage.

Resilient: Far more durable than natural grass.
– Natural grass should not be used more than 20 – 24 hours per week or 680 – 816 hours per year.
– Synthetic turf can be utilized around 3,000 hours per year with no “rest” required.

Safety and Performance: Player well-being is at the forefront of product development.
Hundreds of studies have shown that the risk of injury is no different on high quality synthetic turf than natural grass. FIFA Quality Turf, in particular, has been extensively benchmarked and tested against natural grass for player safety and performance measures.

We, the undersigned, hereby show our full and unwavering support for a turf field at Avon High School. We confirm that, as members of the local community, we call on our Local and State Governments to recognize and acknowledge this petition.
Thank you!
