One notable project of 2019 that we had an opportunity to contribute to, was the re-branding and upgrade of John Carroll University’s Don Shula Stadium. Celebrating 100 years with a rebrand of their logo and updated turf field that utilized our top quality infill, the new turf field completed Aug 2nd.
It displays the new eye-catching JCU logo mid-field.
Since opening in 1962, the football team has played their home games at nearby Excelsior Stadium or at La Mirada High School. For the first time in the school’s history, John Glenn High School now has their own lighting equipped football field and stadium.
We were pleased to have supplied the infill for the brand new synthetic turf field and other fields that accompany this massive modernization project. The brand new stadium also boasts 2500 seats, a press box, ticket booth, and concession building with locker rooms. Congratulations on the new stadium!
This project involved the conversion of two natural grass softball fields into synthetic surfaces. We proudly supplied the best quality sand for the new turf.
The fall and winter seasons are a scheduling nightmare for sports in the Lower Mainland, as snow and relentless rain keeps grass fields closed. Generally, games missed have to be rescheduled. This will no longer be a problem at Telosky!
“Our field sports participants will be able to play throughout the rainy weather into the fall and winter when our natural grass fields are sometimes not playable. These fields will also serve as key venues for field lacrosse, soccer and softball as we host the 2020 BC Summer Games”, said Valoree Richmond, manager of parks planning and development.
We were pleased to be a part of this project.
