Sports Turf Canada was established in 1987 when after a brain storming session at the University of Guelph a broad segment of the turf industry endorsed its need. Of particular concern at that meeting was the need to minimize and avoid injury to participants using athletic fields where they relate to sports turf. Over a quarter- century later Sports Turf Canada continues to promote better, safer sports turf through innovation, education and professional programs.
