The UWSP Grounds Work Unit cares for all of the athletic fields on the university campus. Their constant goal is to provide the university’s athletic teams, intramural participants and the community with fields of a caliber that equal those of professional sporting venues. UWSP fields receive scheduled care under strict fertilization, top dressing and aerification programs. The grounds work unit maintains a 7 acre multi-purpose field, Point Soccer Bowl, University Baseball Field, McCarty Memorial Softball Field, Kohlman Outdoor Track, Upper DeBot Field and 2 practice football fields including Eddie Kotal Field. They are top dressed once per year during the summer months. They are aerified twice per year. Once during
the summer and a second time after each sport that utilizes that particular field has concluded their season.
UWSP sporting events, the Grounds Work Unit does all the needed preparation, including
field striping, leveling, raking, painting logos and all other necessary functions.
The campus fields are host to a variety of
sporting competitions and are also used for practice areas for Baseball, Cross
Country, Football, Outdoor Track & Field, Golf, Soccer, Softball, and Tennis.
on the university campus are also used for a wide variety of intramural sports.
The Grounds Work Unit takes great pride in maintaining 7 acres of fields which
are primarily used for general sporting activities, as well as Rugby, Lacrosse, Soccer, Flag Football, Frisbee
and much more. The same care that is put into UWSP’s competitive venues is
given to these multi-use areas.
