Mission Statement

    MASTMA promotes the profession of sports field management via a nurturing environment consisting of education, innovation, mentoring, and networking.

    History of the Chapter

    Because a few individuals believed that sports turf could be improved through the sharing of knowledge and the exchange of ideas, MASTMA was officially revived and brought into good standing on February 7, 2017.

    The key leaders of this revival were Nicole Andrews of Matrax Inc., Ryan Bjorn of Maryland SoccerPlex, Patrick Coakley of Ripken Baseball, Michael Stachowicz of National Park Service - National Mall & Memorial Parks, Don Follett of Baltimore Ravens, Nicole McFadyen of Baltimore Orioles, Dr. Kevin Mathias and Dr. Thomas Turner of University of Maryland College Park, and Jason Kopp of Turf Equipment & Supply.
