The Sports Turf Association (STA), Canada’s national sports turf manager’s group, in partnership with the Western Canada Turfgrass Association (WCTA), is sanctioning the first ever Sports Turf Field Day held west of Ontario.
The STA has hosted an annual day-long educational and tradeshow event for the past 25 years, all of which have been held in various Ontario locations. The exception was 2011, where an effort to support Atlantic sports turf managers saw the STA deliver an additional field day in Moncton, New Brunswick.
