The first day of school for New York sports players will be an adventure because of their newly installed artificial grass sports fields. This year's New York high will have less of players injuries and more of winning games. Nevertheless, many of parents and directors question if synthetic turf was a right solution to go by and how does it impact health and

environment.

Many are questioning the benefits of having a synthetic turf in New York City. Couple of years back, the New York City Park's players noticed the deterioration of the field. "It's been like this for five years," a player points out the problem and the open seams, torn patches and wavy folds in the artificial turf at their park. Referees for public school league games already boycott two artificial-turf fields' games, citing fears of liability.

The New York is noticing these problems and working on the artificial field upgrade. However, the reasons behind city's replacement plan to artificial grass are obesity, maintenance and water, which automatically will elevate cost savings on field sustainability. Artificial turf is part of a plan of New York City blueprint for environmentally friendly futures, and to inform their residents is the key to successful installation of artificial grass in the parks.

New York City Parks Department (NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene) uses different kind of synthetic turf depending where it will be used. Most of the synthetic turf fields that they put contain crumb rubber infill along with padding and drainage systems. Other synthetic fields are made of carpet-style materials. According to the New York City, currently, about 136 of the Parks Department's 800 athletic fields are composed of synthetic turf material with 99 crumb rubber infill, 19 alternative material infill, and 16 carpet-styles. There are also 19 small play areas with 15 crumb rubber infill and 4 carpet-style, which are often located within playgrounds, that are made of synthetic turf surfaces. The potential for significant exposure to the chemicals in crumb rubber is very low. Like asphalt, the crumb rubber in synthetic turf fields absorbs heat from the sun and gets hotter than dirt or natural grass. On hot days, some synthetic turf fields may be too hot to play on. To protect yourself from the heat, consume plenty of water, wear light and loose fitting clothes, always wear shoes, and take breaks often. A synthetic turf field does not cause bacterial infections. Majority of bacterial infections are caused due to physical contact and sharing contaminated towels, sports equipment and sports drinks bottles. New York coaches at schools and everywhere in states should be aware of the potential

bacterial transmission and infection among athletes. The NYC Department is currently working on using carpet-style and alternative infill material on all new fields, replacing NYC parks with new synthetic turf field and placing strict protocols to select the best synthetic turf.

Confident of what New York City is doing for its community, Notre Dame High are renovated their Brewer Memorial Stadium with artificial turf instead of grass, installed a new track, new bleachers and a new press box, that represents another win for the program. "It was a lot of work, but it's simply beautiful," said high school coach, entering his 33rd season as Crusaders. " One of the nicest facilities I've seen around and certainly in Section 4." After the last finishing touches around the new artificial grass field, the players where satisfied with the comfort and the natural look of the synthetic grass.
