Sports are Our Thing
Our team knows sports. Yes, we know the rules and the products, but we also understand why athletics is so important to you and your community. We are fanatics. Like you, you’ll find us at the ballpark or in the stands on a Friday night. We understand the subtle nuances of sports that can make your good athletic facility a great athletic facility. We listen to how you want your facility to operate, how your spectators flow, how your athletes interact with the facility, and how they expect and prefer a surface to perform. We then add our passion for sports and expertise to design and CREATE your excellent facility. 

Sportworks brings the unique advantage of being industry thought leaders for athletic facility design through our active involvement in national organizations such as the American Sports Builders Association, the Synthetic Turf Council, and the Sports Field Managers Association. Learning from and sharing ideas with some of the nation’s top sports designers, contractors, and academics means our design for your project uses the best products and latest industry knowledge. We’ll make sure your facility scores ahead of your competition.
