Soccer Field Construction
Soccer is one of the most popular sports in many areas - especially in Westchester County and the New York metropolitan area. Soccer continues to grow at a fast and steady pace in the United States. As a result the technology and science in putting together a soccer field is continually changing. To meet these ever changing requirements, DeRosa Sports Construction engages ongoing training opportunities every chance we get.
By networking with other professionals in the industry, we are able to stay ahead of the learning curve and offer the most up-to-date soccer field construction methods available today. Soccer fields are unique for a couple of reasons:
- the field needs to meet the requirements of the athlete in terms of foot support and cushioning
- the ball needs to roll unrestricted
Finding this balance has been an ongoing quest to find the pile height / infill ratio. The soccer fields of today also have to stand up to the field wear and tear that the sport requires, both in training and on game day. As professional soccer organizations set the regulations for the sport, we are there to make sure that all expectations for soccer field construction projects are exceeded.
Adding amenities for spectators and visiting teams should also be considered. Typically we suggest that spectator seating should be included in the design. Access from the parking lot to the game field needs to be convenient for all age groups and physical abilities. Grooming for soccer fields is typically required several times per year. Soccer is a demanding sport and the surface of the field will need additional attention to maintain its proper function.
From local leagues to local high schools throughout the New York tri-state area, we have worked with every level of the soccer community. We provide outstanding facilities for all of our customers.
