About Our Facility

 

Located on the Ridgefield High School campus in historic Ridgefield Connecticut, Tiger Hollow Stadium is one of the premier athletic stadiums in the area which supports both school and community events. This large scale facility can comfortably accommodate up to 5,000 spectators which makes it an ideal location for large events. While it’s primary use is for school sports activities, Tiger Hollow is booked throughout the fall, spring and summer seasons with other activities such as: Relay for Life, Strongman Competition, July 4th Fireworks, Adult Soccer, Father’s Day 5K Race, youth league programs, summer camps, etc.

The Tiger Hollow Stadium facility was a gift to the Town of Ridgefield by an impressive fundraising effort spearheaded by dedicated Ridgefield community leaders. That generosity and spirit lives on via the Tiger Hollow Inc. Board who continue to oversee and support the facility.

Turf Field

The turf field chosen to be installed at Tiger Hollow (one of the first high school synthetic grass with rubber infill fields in Connecticut) was the result of exhaustive research and a commitment to provide a safe, more durable playing surface for our kids. Seven years of playing experience and thousands of athletes later, Tiger Hollow continues to be the field desired by coaches and athletes across multiple sports. The facts and observations highlighted below represent close to 10 years of knowledge, exposure and experience.

 Safety

Artificial Fields are laid on top of plus/minus three feet of three grades of gravel. Pure water flows through the carpet backing directly through the filtering rock. This clean, non-chemically treated water flows back into the surrounding watersheds cleaner than when it is first on the field.

The artificial field’s rubber infill is an inorganic/nonbacterial material and requires no regular treatment like other grass fields requiring thousands of pounds of fertilization/herbicides and lime that can flow directly into the watershed system, directly and indirectly polluting it. Artificial fields are cleaned with a very light water-based commercial disinfectant cleanser when debris/spillage gets leaked onto the field.
