The health, safety and performance of athletes is greatly affected by the playing surface. Standards for the dynamic relationship between a sports floor and athletes demonstrate that sustainable maple hardwood flooring offers exceptional accommodation of forces while enhancing play. This course also discusses key selection considerations used for material specification of a natural wood or synthetic sports and activity floor, and describes a variety of basic subfloor and surface configurations for maple floors.
