The Linn-Mar Stadium has 5,000 seats on the home side! That means there is enough seating to handle our crowds so we expect our students to stay in the stands and watch the game.
Some of our students prefer to congregate under the stands, which encourages horseplay and other types of inappropriate behavior that is unsafe. Students should stay in the stands unless they are going to the concession stand or restroom. We need parents to discourage students from loitering beneath the bleachers. Nobody will be allowed on the grassy hillside behind the South end zone, either.
Supervisors will monitor these areas and direct students to return to the stands if they are just milling about. Students who are uncooperative will be asked to leave. If asked to leave, students will be banned from future game(s).
There will be separate designated areas for Linn-Mar High School students, the band and Middle School students. These sections are all located in the lower level. All elementary students should be sitting with or in the vicinity of their parents. Please do not just let your children run around unattended or drop them off at stadium without an adult.
Our first home football game is Friday, August 25th against Iowa City High. Our sophomore game begins at 5:00 p.m. followed by the varsity game at approximately 7:30 pm. We anticipate a big crowd! We hope you can join us for this event!
Most importantly, we encourage students to be positive fans watching the game and cheering on our teams from the stands.
Thank you in advance for your support of our programs.
Athletics such as shot put, hammer throw and discuss can be occasionally performed with the landing zone outside the playing area. This practice is not recommended.
To insure optimum performance of your Field Turf field the manufacturer recommends that repetitive training drills and activities be rotated to prevent continuous wear at a single location.

Intensive and repetitive use of certain area of the field may cause material to be displaced from time to time. Properly maintaining the infill on your field is important and directly affects playability. Rubber infill will need to be added to these high use areas as needed. These specific areas on the field should be inspected regularly to ensure proper infill height.
These high usage areas include, but are not limited to:
With Field Turf, the uniformity of the infill can be maintained, by agitating the exposed fibers with a garden rake, and then brushing the infill into the fibers. The top of the infill should be ¾” below the tips of the fibers.
Cleaning mud and dirt from cleated shoes with the use of Field Turf brushes placed near the field will prevent soiling and staining of the field surface. Cleaning brushes should not be placed directly on the Field Turf surface.
