2018 Brownstown Central Turf Project

It was announced at the May 9th, 2017, BCCSC School board meeting that a turf football field and 8 lane track will be included in the 2018 building project. I would like to thank the school board, administration, coaching staff, POPS board and all of our fans who made this possible. It's great to be a BRAVE.




Why Synthetic Turf?


1} Upgrade our school facilities- With open enrollment, whether we like it or not, we are competing for students with Seymour and Trinity Lutheran. Seymour has done a great job in the last few years, putting forth a lot of effort and resources to improve the school itself and all the athletic facilities, including the brand new turf soccer and football fields in 2016. Enticing modern facilities can have a huge impact on kids and their parents to chose one school over another. If we do not improve our facilities to remain attractive to those students, then we could continue to see a decline in our enrollment, and as we all know, enrollment = funding.

2} Improve Parking at the High School-With the addition of a turf field, the football team would not use a portion of the present practice facility. This would open up an area that could be used for much needed parking. 

3} Accessibility- At the end of the season we run into a problem of where to practice. If we have bad weather our practice field is either under water or in poor shape, which could lead to injuries. Because of this we either have to practice on the game field or use the auxiliary gym. If we use the game field we could damage the field, which could hurt the condition of the field for a home tournament game. If we use the gym than the basketball team either practices later or does not practice, which hurts their program. With a turf field we would practice on the turf. Also other groups would benefit, including the high school band, the high school & middle school physical education classes, school clubs, community groups, middle school football program, the 56er football program and the Flag football program. Baseball and softball could also practice on the turf if they are unable to practice on their diamonds due to poor weather.

4} Safety- A consistent playing surface and low G-Max rating [a measurement of the shock absorbing properties of synthetic turf] is essential for a safe playing surface. Sure footing is key to preventing any type of foot, ankle and leg injuries, and a flat and consistent synthetic system can provide that type of surface, whereas grass fields have divots and develop ruts.  The G-Max rating is an important testing process for the final completion of a synthetic turf system. The proper G-Max rating will provide a safer playing surface to reduce the risk of head injuries as well. 

5} Environmental Impacts- By installing synthetic turf, some environmental benefits are gained such as reduced amounts of water and eliminations of fertilizers and gas-driven lawnmowers, all of which are needed to maintain natural grass fields. In addition, the new generation of artificial turf uses rubber granules made from recycled tires mixed in with sand as an infill material underneath the synthetic turf. Tire disposal has become a major problem for landfills in the United States and efforts to recycle this material are encouraged.

6} Opportunity- Because of its durability, turf can be used more often, thus generating the possibility of income through rental fees. Having a synthetic turf field creates more economic opportunities for Brownstown Central High School and the Brownstown Central Community School Corporation.

7} First Class Facility- The addition of a synthetic turf would upgrade our football facilities to a level comparable to Gibson Southern, Southridge, Providence, Lawrenceburg and Seymour.

8} Smart Investment- Natural grass fields are not as durable, which limits hours of usage. In addition, maintenance expenses can reach upwards of $30,000 annually. The yearly savings will be allocated to other school projects. Annual upkeep {from Southridge AD} $1500 per year for one antibacterial application for the year/one G max test {softness}. Turf maintenance {maintenance equipment is included in purchase price} - Southridge sweeps the turf on Fridays of home varsity games, grooms the turf one time per year. No issues with bacteria- they apply antimicrobial one time for the season.
