National Championship Series Announced between United States Specialty Sports Association and AstroTurf.

Melbourne, FLA. – United States Specialty Sports Association – Soccer (USSSA), an Organizational Member of U.S. Soccer (USSF), and AstroTurf, a leader in field technology and facility development has joined forces to create a national competition series.

The USSSA – AstroTurf National Championship Series will allow all clubs and teams across the country to play at state-of-the-art facilities, competing towards the national championships held at USSSA’s Space Coast Complex and Stadium in Melbourne, Florida. The championship event will be held each December starting in 2021, with all final games played in the 8,500 all seater stadium and streamed live on USSSAlive.com.

“Over the past several years AstroTurf and USSSA have established a solid working relationship, including the successful development of the Space Coast Stadium Complex and Viera Regional Park,” stated  Craig Scriven, Vice President of USSSA. “More recently, we’ve worked with Steve Coleman, Carl Capellas, and their team to create this soccer tournament series, which will set high standards, quality programming, with all games played at world class facilities.”

The 2020/21 qualifying tournaments will kick off where they end in 2021 at Space Coast Complex in Melbourne, Florida during the 2020 Labor Day weekend (September 4-7th). The second event will be held at the Woodside Sports Complex, Wisconsin Dells (October 23-25th). Additional 2021 events are tentatively planned at Jennings Park, OH; and Trophy Park, NJ; with dates to be confirmed.

All tournaments will be sanctioned by USSSA, offering an unrestricted and open tournament to all members of USSF. This allows for teams across different memberships to compete in a unique national championship series. “Our goal is to bring together the soccer community and allow teams to compete across multiple divisions, against teams they may not see during their regular season,” Erick French, USSSA National Director said.

Hosting 2021 and 2022 events is a possibility for all AstroTurf complexes across the country, and these facilities will be contacted on hosting application processes. “In partnering with USSSA and creating this series, we offer teams the opportunity to compete at some of the best facilities in the country. As a player, I always appreciated the great facilities I was able to play at and show my talents,” says Carl Capellas, AstroTurf Director of Soccer.

The tournament series will be managed by USSSA, AstroTurf, and alongside Tournament Success Group (TSG). “To be associated with great facilities and a supportive sanctioning body is the key to every tournament,“ stated TSG Executive Director Bill Fisher. “The foundations and reach of this tournament series will allow teams from all across the country to compete towards an open national championship.”

Getting your synthetic turf field ready to reopen

Dalton, GA – Over the last several months, COVID-19 restrictions have meant that most all sports facilities have been closed and off limits to athletes for quite some time. Hopefully, now you are making plans to reopen your athletic fields in the very near future and have considered all the necessary steps to do so.  You may think that your synthetic field has not been played on in four months so that it should be in good condition. That could be far from the truth. There is still a lot to consider before you open your fields back up for play.

Today’s synthetic turf systems are more like natural grass. Manufacturers have been able to simulate the look and feel of natural grass by using taller, grass-like fibers and fill the fiber matrix with infill like sand, rubber, or organic materials. The finished product requires specialized, consistent maintenance to remain uniform, predictable, and high performing, especially in terms of shock attenuation, traction, and ball response. Proper maintenance will contribute to greater durability and longevity of your synthetic turf system.

Your turf system may just need a deep-brushing, or it may require an intensive cleaning. Even though the field has been closed, it should be inspected for vegetation, animal activity, vandalism, or other contamination. Only some minor grooming may be in order, but for reassurance and peace of mind, an intensive grooming program that includes a field disinfectant is highly recommended.

AstroTurf’s Maintain the Game Aftercare Program has put together a comprehensive field maintenance program that considers the surface safety concerns facing our world today. This regular service program can be upgraded to include ProGienics. ProGienics Concentrated Hard Surface Disinfectant is a proactive approach to disease prevention & odor control that can be used on a wide range of surfaces found in athletic fields, fitness centers, weight rooms, common areas, children’s playgrounds or anywhere with synthetic turf.  This application is effective against a wide variety of mold, bacteria, fungi, and viruses including COVID-19. The result is a completely disinfected playing surface that is safe for athletes.

The use of ProGienics has been determined to kill 99.9% of germs, virus, bacteria, mold, fungus, mildew, and microbes that cause diseases and infections on contaminated surfaces including artificial turf, athletic fields, playgrounds, locker rooms and more.  The treatment is 100% human, animal, and is environmentally friendly.

Not only will the Maintain the Game Program provide you with a decontaminated surface, it will provide you with an extensive fiber brushing, removal of foreign objects and debris, decompaction of the infill and give you a beautiful, predictable, high-performing playing surface.

So, before you just open the gate to the field and let the users play, be responsible and go down this checklist.

Have you inspected your field for debris and foreign objects?
Have you inspected your field for animal waste and contamination?
Have you inspected your field for vandalism of any kind?
Have you determined that infill depths are satisfactory?
Have you treated your field to remove any harmful bacteria or viruses?
Have you satisfactorily confirmed that the surface is safe for your athletes?
