Facility Features

Artificial Turf
LCI Sports Centre’s turf is not quite like real grass— it is thicker and softer than other turf products on the market. While it is slightly harder than natural grass, our turf is significantly advanced from products available even five years ago. Some say it is even better than natural grass. Our turf has:

  • Improved sliding properties
  • Ultra-soft fibre
  • Resilient fibre that quickly springs back after being trodden on

What makes the turf different is new technology that uses cryogenic rubber and sand infill with implanted artificial blades of grass, which provides a high-quality playing surface. Older turfs are a form of less durable carpet that is not as safe for players and feels “artificial”.

Under the Dome
Each fall, a high tech dome structure is erected over the playing surface and taken down in the spring. The air-supported structure is the latest engineering design manufactured by the Farley Group. The unique building system offers significant advantages over conventional buildings.
Size Matters
The entire 300’ x 200’ field is divided into three 100’ X 200’ playing surfaces. You can book a single section or the entire field. The large unimpeded space means the playing surface is available for all four seasons of the year. In the outdoor season, with the dome removed, the field is a regulation size CFL football field.
Under the Lights
Night play requires excellent night vision. Our latest technology lighting makes playing easy whether inside or outside.
