The field turf project on The Rockpile will begin in early June as summer vacation begins next week for all PCSC students. The new synthetic field known as Cross Flex, will be ready for use by the PHS Band and the Plymouth Rockies Football team in August, 2017.
The Cross Flex field will be able to accommodate all activity it is used for. The turf is made of three different layers. It is wear-resistant and the backing on the turf eliminates wrinkles that may occur on other playing surfaces. Other schools and areas of Indiana that use this type of turf are Goshen High School, Warsaw High School, New Castle High School, Oak Hill High School, Marion High School, Indiana Tech University, and Grand Park Sports Complex near Noblesville, IN.
The name of the company Plymouth Schools is purchasing the turf from is known as the Motz Group. They have been in business for 40 years.
