One of the main priorities of an athletic director or an athletic facility manager is to ensure the safety of athletes and others. Attempting to outfit your sports facilities by relying on providers with little to no experience can create unsafe playing conditions and end up costing you more in the long run.

Specializing in a variety of playing surfaces such as running tracks, tennis courts, and artificial turf fields, American Athletic Track and Turf has been providing advanced services to sporting complexes throughout the northeast and southeast United States for decades. Since 1983, our award-winning sports construction company has created one-of-a-kind athletic facilities for several big-name clients. Here, we discuss the importance of calling upon the services of a certified builder for all your athletic facility needs.

Why the Less Expensive Route May End Up Costing More

As an athletic director at a school, you may feel the budget requires a lower-quality provider for running tracks and tennis courts to save money. If you worry that funding for sports programs may suffer, it may seem most plausible to opt for a less experienced business. However, following this route mayresult in expensive repairs further down the line, which ultimately cost your program more money. More so, a cracked or deteriorating surface can create unsafe playing conditions, resulting in injuries to athletes and other users.

Instead, athletic directors and business directors should choose a provider who possesses the required resources and knowledge to safely install or repair their athletic surfaces. The advantages of working with the certified builders at American Athletic Track and Turf include:
