As sports turf managers, your desire is to provide high quality playing surfaces for athletes to compete on. New research is indicating that surface variability may be a contributor to athlete injury. We will discuss this research, examine tools and technologies for assessing field uniformity, and explore the possible future of field maintenance. Attendees can expect to leave with a greater understanding of the role that uniform predictable surfaces play in athlete wellbeing, the mportance of managing toward uniformity, and the tools and technologies available for doing just that.
