The American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), the national organization for builders and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities, has announced the winners of its annual awards. Awards are presented each year to facilities built by ASBA members, which best exemplify construction excellence.


Winners are announced in the fall, and presentation of award plaques is made at the Technical Meeting, recently held in Savannah, GA. A panel of ASBA members judges entries anonymously. Projects are scored individually based on considerations such as layout and design, site work, drainage, base construction, surface, amenities, innovation and overall impression. Winning entries are those whose cumulative scores meet or exceed the standard. This year’s winning projects are as follows:
