Raising funds to help provide the best field

for Everyone!


Which HS programs will benefit from Project Turf? 

Most of the athletic programs will benefit from Project Turf.  Football, Soccer and Lacrosse will realize a direct benefit, and all sports that practice/compete inside will see some benefit as Football, Soccer and Lacrosse will almost always be able to practice outside and not require indoor practice time.  The only thing that sends them indoors is lightning.

How much will the turf cost?

From $800,000 to $1,000,000

Will community groups (Vernon Hills Park District, Vernon Hills Cougar Youth Athletic Association, etc..) be able to use the field?

Yes.  D128 programs will have priority on field usage, and we will work with all community groups to fully utilize the field without D128 incurring any additional expenses for use of the field by a non-D128 program.

Does your company have matching funds?

Why now?

The timing of this effort aligns with the District’s capital plan, which designates the current natural grass field for replacement in the summer of 2012.  The Project Turf team plans to work with District 128 to raise the additional funds needed to install synthetic turf on Rust-Oleum Field.
