07 Jul New Field? Get Your Soccer Team Adjusted To Artificial Grass In No Time
Any time your team plays on an entirely new surface is a challenge. But what happens when that new surface is now their permanent one?
Playing soccer on an artificial grass field has been shown to increase ball control and speed, and help reduce injury during falls. Because it requires so little maintenance, synthetic turf is also a huge boon for field managers, who no longer need to worry about mowing, watering, or replanting an entire field.
Once you’ve decided to make the switch to artificial grass for your California soccer field, you’ll want to get your team acclimated so that they take full advantage of the new surface’s benefits. Help them get comfortable in no time with these tips.
Help them find new shoes
Players will likely want to switch to turf soccer shoes that are designed to work with the surface of the grass, as opposed to traditional cleats, which work with the dirt under the sod. However, if you play teams that don’t have natural grass, players will want to keep their other pair handy as well.
Monitor the surface temperature
On a hot summer day, your artificial grass might get a little too hot for comfort. On those occasions, you can quickly water the surface down to cool things off, and you won’t have to wait long to get back on the field.
Practice running and drills
It’s important that you help players get used to the feel of their new playing surface gradually. Start with drills or running, where they can see how the surface reacts without worrying about ball play at the same time.
Tell other teams
You definitely want to give teams that you play a heads-up about your new artificial grass playing surface. While it’s becoming more common for schools to install turf, you want to give coaches and players a chance to get the right equipment and preparation well in advance of your home game.
