Sports Turf Association NSW
The Sports Turf Association Australia is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the development and professionalism of sports turf management.
STA is a representative body for all sports-turf related workers and allied trades. Our members are from a variety of sports turf venues, including sports stadiums, golf courses, bowling greens, private schools and councils.
The Associations are managed by a voluntary team of committee members who are dedicated to providing knowledge, resources and ongoing education and networking opportunities for its members.
The committees are elected by the members of the Association and represents both active greenkeepers and representatives from industry-based organisations.
STA is represented in 7 states: Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Western Australia.
Each STA state chapter conducts a variety of events throughout the year, including seminars and workshops. The purpose of these events is to encourage professional development, learn about industry changes, and network with other professionals in the sports turf industry.
Some of these events include a hands-on approach to specific subjects, such as cricket wickets, sports field renovations, disease and weed and pest management, in addition to educational events.
All event information can be found on the STA website.
STA Australia encourages anyone from the turf industry to become a member of their State Association, which also includes membership to STA Australia.
Each state has their own Member benefits. These include:
