Illinois Sports Turf Managers Association


The Illinois Sports Turf Managers Association is an organization of individuals with common goals and concerns regarding sports turf.  Our membership includes professionals from all segments of the sports turf industry – schools, park districts, youth leagues, pro teams and commercial vendors. 

 With a variety of professional titles including 
Athletic Director, Superintendent, Coach,
Grounds Manager and Technical Representative, these individuals work together as a team to improve sports turf in Illinois.

Our chapter of the National Sports Turf Managers Association brings together people within Illinois, offering you the opportunity to learn from the best in the business.  Our group spans the broad spectrum of facility sizes and athletic programs, offering managers of all types of facilities access to individuals working under similar conditions.  Together you can discuss problems and exchange ideas and solutions relevant to your situation.


By participating in the ILSTMA you will have access to excellent opportunities in professional advancement and knowledge.  Where else can you tap the resources of all types of field managers and find out how they also work with tight budgets and schedules, make and modify their own equipment, or research better techniques or products?


Our Board of Directors works to improve the tangible benefits to members.  In addition to workshops and discounted registration fees, the ILSTMA website contains resource information, member highlights, job opportunities, equipment resale/requests and much more.
