ASBA Releases Free Sports Facility Design App
22 Jan, 2018
The American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), the national organization for designers, builders and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities, has announced its new mobile app, available via free download on iPhone and Android devices.
ASBA Diagram Showcase, which launched this month, is live on the App Store. It contains updated diagrams for the following facilities:
· Tennis Courts
· Running Tracks
· Sports Fields
· Pickleball Courts
· Courts & Recreational Venues (sports include basketball, volleyball, badminton, fencing and more)
The diagrams illustrate not only the facilities themselves (an example might be an NCAA-regulation men’s lacrosse field) but necessary technical details to those maintaining, building and repairing such facilities, such as a cross-section of a synthetic turf anchoring system.
The new app represents a tremendous advance in the industry, and will allow those in the field, or even working from the office, to access the information they need quickly and easily, and to save it for future use. ASBA will update the information in the app to remain current with any rule changes.
“ASBA is really excited that we can offer the Diagram Showcase app,” said Kristoff Eldridge, CTB, ASBA’s chairman. “We see it not only as a way for builders, design professionals, managers and others in the industry to access information easily, but as a way to promote quality design and construction of athletic facilities worldwide. The fact that the app is free means it is even easier to put this information into the hands of anyone who needs it, and who wants to have the most updated diagrams available.”
The ASBA Diagram Showcase can be accessed on the App Store by keying ASBA into the search box.
The ASBA is a non-profit association helping designers, builders, owners, operators and users understand quality sports facility construction. The ASBA sponsors informative meetings, publishes newsletters, books and technical construction guidelines for both tennis courts and running tracks, and keeps its members aware of the latest developments in the industry. It also offers voluntary certification programs in tennis court, running track and sports field construction.
Available at no charge is a listing of all publications offered by the Association, as well as the ASBA’s Membership Directory.
