"From innovation to performance to sustainability, their product lines stood out, and I believe GreenFields will emerge as the preferred synthetic surface for lacrosse. We're excited to be building what we feel will be the state-of-the-art lacrosse field for our national team training center."
The field will serve as home for Team USA and a site for international, college and high school games, as well as youth play. The site will also serve as an education center for national coach and official training.
