Program for BC Sports Field Training Day Finalized – Demo Stations Amped Up This Year!

Hosted by the City of Surrey on Wednesday, October 2nd and co-produced by Sports Turf Canada and the Western Canada Turfgrass Association, the BC Sports Field Training Day education and activity program is bigger and better than originally anticipated!

“Support from industry suppliers has provided the opportunity to build on previous years,” explained WCTA Executive Director, Jerry Rousseau, adding, “not to mention the enthusiasm of the Surrey Parks Department lead by Hugh Norris and Jamey Serediuk.”

Taking place at the Softball City venue within South Surrey Athletic Park, as it now stands and supplementing the morning classroom education, an extra supplier demonstration station has been added to the afternoon rotation along with an ‘all delegate’ presentation by Surrey staff on the topic of laser field levelling.
