On the heels of its U.S. debut, Elite Turf powered by Act Global completed installation of the POWER System at Ranney School in Tinton Falls, N.J. Ranney School partnered with Princeton Soccer Academy (PSA) to completely re-turf its existing soccer, lacrosse and field hockey fields – totaling 80,000 square feet. With the significant investment from PSA, students of Ranney School and athletes who play for PSA will be the first in the country to utilize the all-in-one, eco-friendly turf system that’s 100% recyclable.
“We are excited to have this state-of-the-art technology that will increase the safety for our student-athletes,” said Ranney School Athletic Director Natalie Gorman. “The ability to feature the same playing ground as the professionals use on our campus is an incredible benefit for our students.”
Elite Turf’s POWER System encompasses a woven turf. It’s built on the ProPlay pad Foundation, which plays and feels firm while testing soft. With no polyurethane backing, the synthetic turf is 100% recyclable at end of life, reducing the high disposal cost, and its interlocked fibers stand vertical, offering superior and consistent ball roll, steady footing, and reduced glare and heat.
“A key factor within our POWER system is the effect the warps and wefts structure of our woven turf have on the permeability of our turf system,” said Moshe Grant, chief operating officer at Elite Turf.
Ranney School is an age 3 through Grade 12 independent, co-ed, secular college preparatory school serving students across Monmouth and Ocean Counties. PSA is a leading youth soccer organization providing an elite player development model with locations in North Jersey (PSA SDFC), New Jersey Shore (PSA Wildcats), and Central New Jersey (PSA Princeton). PSA offers an all-inclusive program for players starting their soccer journey at 3-years-old and national and international-level competitions for those 18 years of age.
