Athletic Turf Field

August 2013 marked the official opening of the newly laid and highly anticipated artificial turf field located at Superior Heights Collegiate & Vocational School.  This is the city’s first multi-use, all-weather, artificial turf field.  Situated centrally at 750 North Street, this new athletic facility allows teams and individuals to take part in recreational activities from April until November. 
 
With plans under way for the construction of the John Faught Fieldhouse, this fully lit complex will now allow our community to facilitate elite competitive outdoor team tournaments as well as major community outdoor projects, events, sports clinics, and camps.  Algoma District School Board is able to host events such as City and NOSSA football and soccer while emerging sports will also be able to access these first-class facilities which may assist in the growth of these games.
 
Artificial turf is extremely durable and with extensive use makes it a safe surface for athletes of all calibres.  The Northern Ontario climate produces significant wear and tear on our grass sports fields and places restrictions on field use in our area at certain periods of time.  The opening of this venue is allowing greater access to outdoor sports through the Spring and Fall seasons.
