Summit's Turf Field

Summit High School is fortunate to have some of the best facilities available in the world today. Summit Field is the only synthetic surface on the East side of the mountains in Oregon. The field has dramatic safety and value which benefit not only Summit students, but the entire Bend community. We need your help finishing paying off the field and maintaining it for the future. Below is a brief list of some of the advantages to this surface.


An independent, five-year safety study of competitive high school football showed that when compared to natural grass the FieldTurf system leads to:

  • 55% Fewer Neural Injuries
  • 47% Fewer Cranial / Cervical Injuries
  • 38% Fewer 3rd Degree Injuries
  • 45% Less Time Lost to Long-Term Injuries (Lasting 22+ Days)
  • 35% Less Time Lost to Short-Term Injuries (Lasting 1-2 Days)


This is how FieldTurf provides the best value:

 Natural Grass   Field Turf              
 Base preperation:  $150,000  $320,000              
 Materials:  $2.75 per sq. ft. = $220,000  $4.75 per sq. ft. = $380,000
 Maintenance:  $20,000 x 10 years =  $200,000   $5,000 x 10 years =  $50,000
 Total:  $570,000  $750,000
 Scheduling Possibilities:   25 hours x 25 weeks x 10  years  = 6,250 hours  68 hours x 44 weeks x 10  years = 29,920 hours
 Avg. Cost Per Hour of
 $91.20  $25.07


In 2005 a 100 year storm triggered massive sinkholes and destroyed Summit High's field. After much research a decision was made to turn a negative situation into a positive one. Artificial turf was put in with generous pledges from members of our community. The field has benefited our student athletes and our community as well. Now we need your help. Due to the downturn in the economy many of the original pledges were not met. We've been left with a gap in paying down the debt on the field and setting it up for years to come. Please consider making a donation to ensure our community continues to have the best and safest surface available today.
