Abington Friends School Soccer Field – Jenkintown, PA

Jenkintown, Pennsylvania
Soccer Field
Services Provided:Design/Build

Through years of use, Abington Friends School’s Soccer Field had developed a number of irregularities creating a field that was slowing drainage, causing turf quality to decline with each use.

The school turned to Shearon to analyze the underlying issues with the field and devise a plan to improve the playability of the field. Shearon developed and implemented a plan to regrade the field to a consistent, smooth grade, add a drainage system to ensure playable conditions and install a modern irrigation system, while solving issues on an adjoining baseball field that shared space with the soccer field.

Today the field is utilized more than prior to the reconstruction, but due to improved grading, drainage and the introduction of irrigation, the field recovers quickly after heavy use.

Soccer/Lacrosse Field
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Opened August 2007

Philadelphia University’s soccer and lacrosse field wasn’t performing up to the standards of an ‘A’ level NCAA field. This cost the school money in additional repairs, cancelled games, and yearly overhaul projects.

With a project timeline that started in June and ended in early August, with the beginning of soccer season, the staff turned to Shearon Sport’s to get the job done efficiently. Shearon quickly diagnosed the issues and designed a plan that included a state-of-the-art drainage system, tailored irrigation system, modified soil profile, and an improved grading plan.

Our construction team envisioned a process to complete the field within the tight timeline. As forecasted, Shearon came in on time and within budget. Philadelphia University was able to open their new soccer field on opening day delighting the school officials, coaches, athletes and fans.

As a result, Philadelphia University’s lacrosse and soccer fields are one of the top fields in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. To this day Shearon provides daily maintenance services, expert management of irrigation and drainage systems, and specialized turf services to keep consistently, maintained the fields and keep them at top level.
