Forth Worth Country Day completes $3.5M athletic turf improvement project

February 6, 2023

The project at Forth Worth Country Day (FWCD) involved excavating the field hockey field, the multi-sport field (Howard Family Field) at Rosacker Stadium and its track (Barrett Havran Track), and superseding them with international-caliber surfaces and technologies, according to the Forth Worth Business Press.

“We’ll be able to use these facilities for summer camp programs, lower school enrichment programs and PE students,” Leigh Block, athletic director for Forth Worth Country Day told the Business Press. “It provides a safe place for these kids to practice and play, and it ensures that we’ll never have to cancel a practice or game because of poor field conditions.”

Improvements include:

  • Transitioning the field hockey field into a “wet” field using a water-based turf surface manufactured by SporTurf.
  • Howard Family Field is now a PowerBlade fiber-based turf surface field, manufactured by Shaw Sports Turf.
  • Barrett Havran Track now features the PTS 4000 system, manufactured by Paragon Track Surfaces.

The construction was funded entirely by FWCD donors.
