SportsTurf Magazine is the official publication of the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) and the definitive resource for sports turf and athletic facility managers. Published monthly, it presents comprehensive coverage of sports field management practices, emerging technologies and research. Features include facilities and operations, irrigation and drainage, tools and equipment, field science, and association programs.
STMA is the not-for-profit, professional association for the men and women who manage sports fields. Since 1981, the association and its dozens of local chapters have been providing education, information and sharing practical knowledge in the art and science of sports field management. Its more than 2,600 members oversee sports fields and facilities at schools, colleges and universities, parks and recreational facilities, and professional sports stadiums. The membership’s goal is to manage natural turf and synthetic surfaces to produce safe and aesthetically pleasing playing surfaces for athletes at all levels of playing abilities. STMA also has the support of commercial members that furthers the industry through continuous advancements in technology.
This archive, an ongoing cooperative project of Specialty Information Media, STMA and the Michigan State University Libraries, features public access to SportsTurf from 1985 to the present, less two months.
