GPS-Guided Field Stripers Are The Future In Field Markings / 12.10.21

Youth athletics is a multi-billion dollar industry. In fact, it is estimated to be worth over $15 billion. There are a record number of child athletes participating in Little League baseball, Pop Warner football, youth league soccer, and other travel sports. 

Sports complexes are increasing in number to accommodate this rapid rise in kids’ sports. All of these fields need to be constantly re-striped and landscaped to stay looking clean and fresh.

If you own a sports complex or athletic field, when was the last time you thought about updating your field striping methods? Groundskeepers and facility operators need to have the most up-to-date field striping equipment to create strikingly sharp and precise lines on athletic fields. 

Current Challenges with Field Striping for Business Owners

The process of field striping and court marking can be a time consuming and tedious task. If you have an entire sports complex to re-stripe, it can quickly become an all-day task, especially if you have older field striping machines. 

Certain field striping machines can be difficult to handle. They may not accurately stripe warped courts or natural deviations on fields properly. This can create uneven and imprecise lines that do not look good and driving up your costs.

Another challenge of field striping is human error. With older, less accurate field striping machines, it can be difficult to maintain straight lines for an entire field, let alone a whole complex. 

Advanced Robotics

The introduction of GPS field stripers, undoubtedly has speeded up the process of marking out fields. But perhaps now, the need for an operator to walk behind or drive the marking machine is confined to the history book. 

For starters, it now takes 30 minutes instead of four hours to layout and paint a full size soccer field and restriping can be completed in fifteen minutes.

Because everything is computerized, via operator programming on a tablet to produce precisely-positioned lines, the software allows clients to make subtle but sometimes important changes to the positioning of certain lines — for instance, inserting training grids alongside running tracks.

This means we can tweak the line marking to satisfy clients’ every need in terms of additional line marking, and that can only further improve customer satisfaction levels.”
