Commercial Driver License (CDL) Skills Test Course Markings
StakeAll Marking Whisker
How to layout and mark the Commercial Driver License (CDL) Skills Test Course? The US Department of Highway Transportation issued new rules for each state and county driver licensing boards to increase the requirements on the CDL Skills Test.
While some of the CDL Skills Test courses will be laid out on concrete/asphalt surfaces with pylons and paint there will many courses laid out on gravel and packed lots. How do you mark on these surfaces where paint is not appropriate? One of the marking solutions is using survey like marking whiskers, specifically the StakeAll integrated marking whiskers, along with pylons and rope.
The StakeAlls have a hardened plastic stake that can be driven into a hard packed surfaces using a 1/2 inch diameter rod such and the Tru Mark Hand Driver or the Standup Driver. The traditional marking whisker strands are attached to the top ridge of the plastic stake. The StakeAlls come in multiple colors where course distinctions to need be made. They are sold in set of 5 each with packaged offering of 15 (set of 3) and 25 (set of 5) for additional savings.
Metal Sports Field Markers Located with Metal Detectors
A recent Tru Mark inquiry mentioned the need to locate soccer field intersections from season to season. Here's their question, "I'm inquiring about the field marker sets you all have for lining soccer fields. Are your markers metal? I would like for any markers I buy for my program/club to be located in the ground each year by metal detectors in order to eliminate measuring. I have a number of fields to line each season and would like to minimize the effort it takes to do so."
Because they are considering purchasing a significant number of items we are passing on a discount that we offer to all customers.
This unit is inserted into a predrilled hole (using 3/4" soil/wood/steel drill bit), tapped into place with the 3" disc at grade level or below. These can be located with a magnet as well as our Whisker Plug inserts.
I've included several links with images of the Field Line Anchor (FLA).
When ordering 12 or more FLAs I can offer you a price of $14.00 each plus shipping and handling. Each FLA weighs just under a pound a piece.
If you order a FLA with whisker plug the pricing would be $18.00 per set. For the large volume discount pricing please refer to this Blog posting #20140311.
How to Paint Lacrosse Lines on a Football Turf Field
I am on the board for a HS Lacrosse program in IL.
We have a brand new turf football field and need to stripe it for Boys and Girls Lacrosse this Spring.
We would prefer a longer lasting paint (90 days?). Black and Yellow.
We need info and pricing on paint types, sprayers and removers.
The Trail Wash can be applied with a traditional hand pump-up or battery operated backpack sprayer. This product is sprayed on and a brush or mechanical broom is used to agitate the turf fibers and then rinsed with water. This may require several iterations. You do not let the Trail Wash dry during the application and removal process. There are MSDS labels for the paint and removal agent on each webpage under Additional Information tab.
So for estimation purposes:
1) Titan Powrliner 850, $1,677.00 plus $125.00 S&H
2) TrailBlazer Rally Day, Yellow, 1 5-gallon pail, $250.00 plus $35 S&H
3) TrailBlazer Rally Day, Black, 1 5-gallon pail, $250.00 plus $35 S&H
4) TrailBlazer Trail Wash, 1 5-gallon pail, $110.00 plus $35.00 S&H
These products should ship with 5-7 days.
We need to repaint our baseball bases with white paint for better look.
What kind of paint should be use to do it ?
Aerosol turf paint?
Tru Mark offers a product for this purpose, however it is not listed on our website. It is a specialized water based formulation for permanent application, BaseConditioner.
One quart will cover approximately 15 square feet. Right now we only sell the white in 1 gallon containers at $89.00 per gallon, and the orange in 1 quart containers at $49.00 per quart. You can clean the base with a steel brush, roughing it up, or use a cleaner such as our TrailBlazer Solar Wash.
Also to help delineate the "skinned area" of the infield we now offer a 'dirt colored turf paint'. This is a non-diluted bulk latex product specifically formulated for synthetic turf. Pricing is the same as the Solar Trail Green Sweep product.
We received a request recently concerning line marking and painting on multi-sport synthetic turf fields.
"I'm a parent in Virginia. My daughter's high school will soon be installing two turf fields. You are the only one I have found on the web so far who seems to care about how the interests of the different sports are balanced when it comes to marking the turf.
In our situation, nobody is forcing us to do the maximum gaudy football field and then try to fit the others into it, but that's what will happen if we don't stop and think about what we really want. What I would most want to avoid is having an overly strong "gridiron", and I especially don't want fully painted "pay dirt." I want football to play on our field as just another sport that has no more priority than field hockey. It shouldn't have the bright sewn-in lines while everybody else has puny fade-out lines. (While I personally would prefer to make lacrosse primary, I'm willing to compromise and play even!)
What I would like to show to our decision makers is a marking system that achieves this. I'm willing to have a gaudy logo at center, but otherwise no artwork in the end zones, in order that lacrosse and soccer aren't distracted by crazy paint jobs. (I also wanted to point out that the paint jobs fade, and it doesn't look sharp after the first year.)
Do you have a color scheme that evens things up, for soccer, lacrosse (girls and boys), and field hockey, as well as football?
You mention that there are sometimes regulations on color choice. I'm not sure if Virginia or the county has such rules -- but I wonder if we could get a waiver if we make a good argument for an alternative.
Anyway, I am hoping that you might have a picture to share, or some advice.
Figure 1. Here is a field, probably not legal, that really cuts back on football.
They say it is for flag football, but I wonder if that could be adapted.
Figure 2. This next one is our local college, Georgetown, which obviously doesn't care too much about football, at least on this field. I'd still like to avoid the end zone logos, but these are at least not on a fully painted background. The lacrosse and soccer lines are equal to (or stronger than) the football lines. And they don't put the yard numbers on it.
Response to information request.
Over the past several years traveling across the USA visiting different sports facilities I’ve run across several different line marking schemes for multi-use fields.
In a Minnesota school district hosting football, soccer, and lacrosse they followed a white (football), soccer (yellow), lacrosse (blue) color scheme. The white and yellow lines were sewn in while the blue lines were painted. It was a very “busy” looking field with football sideline numbers in the field of play but no end zone nor midfield stencils. https://picasaweb.google.com/105832309948818480130/LacrosseFieldOverPainted
Another Minnesota school district over painted soccer yellow lines on a football field with sewn in white lines. They did not expand the soccer field outside the football field field which made painting some of the yellow lines next to the white lines. We happen to be over painting existing yellow lines without removing the existing painted yellow lines first creating a thicker (build-up) line. The previous paint used was an oil/epoxy
type of material which felt like a gummy substance, not formulated for synthetic turf application. They wanted a brighter line without “cleaning off” the existing material (saving money). https://picasaweb.google.com/105832309948818480130/WayzataHSMinn
Our local community supports a multi-use field for three high school football teams and two high school soccer teams. The field uses white (football with numbers and midfield stencil all sewn in, fit within the soccer circle) and black (soccer sewn in line). At first I wasn’t sure I liked the use of the black line for soccer but sports participants said they didn’t have any problem with this color selection. Nemaha Landscape Construction Inc., Lincoln, NE, [http://nemaha.net/] was responsible for this construction and has a lot of
experience specifying and installing sports fields in the Midwest. They may be able to
provide you additional information.
Most fields use yellow for soccer on a football field. I’ve seen red used primarily for lacrosse and blue for field hockey when on a football field (white lines). More state education associations are specifying sideline number stencils on the field of play versus the out of bounds yardage signs/markers. Please check with your state high school activities organization/association. Most soccer fields on football fields will use the back line of the football end zone as the soccer end line and may not have a separate color. I do like your white lacrosse lines on the white football field picture. I wonder what the participants think of this when on the field of play?
I’ve heard that some student have problems with certain colors due to color blindness.
On the paint/chalk marking solutions there are a couple options you can consider. http://www.athleticfieldmarker.com/products/paint.html?limit=all
1) Permanent field marking paint, bulk latex, can be removed with a cleaning agent, that will hold up for a year, possibly longer, applied with an airless line striper (Tru Mark Trailblazer Solar Trail and Solar Wash).
2) Temporary field marking paint, bulk latex, can be removed with a cleaning agent, that will hold tournament or season, possibly longer, applied with an airless line striper (Tru Mark Trailblazer Rally Day and Season Ticket and Trail Wash).
3) Temporary field marking aerosol chalk, applied like a inverted aerosol paint but performs like a traditional powdered chalk (baseball/softball fields), no cleaning agent required, water brushing/foot traffic removes the line. (DuraStripe Aerosol Chalk)
4) Temporary field marking bulk liquid chalk, applied with an airless line striper but performs like a traditional powdered chalk, no cleaning agent required, water brushing/foot traffic removes the line. (Tru Mark SwitchBack Double Play) https://picasaweb.google.com/105832309948818480130/DoublePlayLiquidChalkTrials
If you are only playing weekend tournaments for a particular sports activity then the temporary marking chalk solution may be the preferred marking option. There are more facility managers restricting the use of paint on their multi-purpose fields. They do not want to be spending time and resources cleaning the turf to remove lines.
Here's a recent article that you might be interested in. There is a section that talks about field striping and marking. This particular article appears to avoid football as the soccer lines (picture at top of page) are in white, lacrosse in yellow, and two other sports in blue/black and red. http://www.northstarpubs.com/articles/prb/partnering-to-meet-common-goals
"Striping And Marking
The benefits from fields like these are dependent upon the ability to host several sports. The artificial fields must be lined and marked for multiple men’s and women’s sports, which adds to the complexity and cost of the project. This also requires cutting, gluing, and splicing the artificial turf, which can result in a greater need for seam repair in the future. The basic outline of the soccer fields is incorporated into the turf at the factory, and once the artificial grass is in place, the additional lines are cut, glued, and sewn in. While this slows down the process of installation, it does allow for a variety of tournaments, which adds a positive economic impact."

Landscape Paver Stone Large Design Layout Solutions
Paver Stone Design for a Circular Drive Way
Landscaping companies are being asked to install designs using paver stones. How can you implement a very large detailed design, say 60 foot diameter, and ensure it will come out based on the original CAD/PhotoShop design?
One solution is converting the design into a flexible custom sheet plastic stencil. Initially all the paver stones are laid out in the landscape/driveway/patio. The flexible stencil is then stretched out over the paver stones and the design is traced onto the paver stones. The stencil is removed. Then each stone is removed and cut based on the marks. The different colored stone pavers are also cut based on the markings after the lines are transcribed. The cut pavers are then replaced into the landscape, the infill is worked into the gaps, possibly with vibrating machines to improve the settling. And your design is completed in the paver stone landscape.
Another solution is overprinting the design on engineer paper using a scale that is appropriate for your situation.You then replicate the grid on the pavers stones using string/twine, say ever 1 foot, thus a one foot square grid. Referring to the scaled printed image you identify the intersections on the string grid. Using straight/curved edges and a marking pencil/pen you connect the crossing on the string grid onto the paver stones. Once done, pull the string lines and begin pulling and cutting paver stones.
Please consider Tru Mark Athletic Field Marker to speed up the stone paver layout design by manufacturing a custom flexible stencil. Send us a good quality image and we can provide you with a price quote.The particular design shown above was ordered and completed by manufacturing 1/4th of the design, approximately 27' x 27' of sheet plastic. The customer after marking 1/4th of the paver stone area, rotated the stencil 90 degrees and completed the markings. Offset markings were used to align the stencil relative to the 3rd curb ring at the center of the design. This particular landscaping customer in Rhode Island stated, "Template worked perfect!!".
Breast Cancer Awareness Month--Cancer Ribbon Path Painting
Cancer Awareness Ribbon Painted Path
October is breast cancer awareness month. There will be numerous events in your area. Please participate is some way. Innovative organizers are adding cancer ribbon painting to their awareness and fund raising events. These inexpensive marketing tools help bring more attention to the events and add color to the event's surroundings.
Many customers are finding the pink aerosol chalk application works well for temporary marking on surfaces such as sidewalks, synthetic turf fields, and other pavements. The aerosol chalk is applied just like aerosol paint, dries typically in 30 minutes, and is removed with water or broom/brush/foot action, no cleaning agenet required.
Standard units are made with high quality vinyl coated polyester windscreen fabric.
Standard colors are Dark Green and Black. Other colors available.
SIZE: 5’ Width x 6’ Height only.
Mix-in Units available in Widths: 10’, 15’, 20’, 25’ x 6’ Height.
Technically Speaking and How and Where to Use It
Individual 5 ft. wide Ballasted Windscreen units are attached to chain link fence only along their tops, and the units are installed alternately on both sides of the fence.
The bottom of each section has a sand-filled PVC pipe inserted thru its entire width in a triple-reinforced pocket.
Engineered to provide just the right amount of ballast to hold the weighted windscreen unit in a vertical position during lighter, tennis-playable winds, but it automatically opens up to let higher velocity winds flow thru, significantly reducing wind stress on the fence.
Each 5’ wide section exerts a minimum of 15 pounds of vertical vector force, providing the correctly engineered amount of ballast to offset excessive unit billowing in normal sports-playable winds.
When constant wind velocities exceed 25 mph, the Aer-Flo Ballasted Windscreen system provides a progressively increasing degree of wind force relief thru a series of opening “wind gates”, those units on the fence side in the wind direction.
Sections that suffer the greatest exposure to high winds, use 100% Ballasted Windscreen units.
Sections that have moderate exposure to high winds, mix in non-ballasted individual units of 10’ – 25’ so that 50-70% of section is covered by alternating Ballasted Windscreen.
For lower wind exposure sections, mix in non-ballasted units so that 20-40% of section is covered by Ballasted Windscreen.
For protected fence sections rarely exposed to high winds, use 100% Aer-Flo non-ballasted windscreen for a perfect match.
Normal position: In calm to low winds. The subtle, two-tone color effect from alternate side installation of 5’ wide units is exaggerated here.
Storm position: In higher, non-playable winds, BALLASTED units open to allow damaging winds thru, PROTECTING FENCE & WINDSCREEN.
Self Tie-Up feature: Built-in hook & loop strips at top allow one person to roll up and secure entire unit in less than 30 seconds. SAVES COSTLY LABOR TIME.
Windscreens Shipping Costs-- Windscreens are shipped by LTL common carriers unless otherwise noted. Please contact us for shipping costs base on the windscreen size and linear feet. Additional shipping costs will apply to orders for shipments to Alaska and Hawaii. The customer will be contacted before proceeding.
How Many Soccer Field Intersections Need to be Staked for Line Marking
When marking a soccer field (world football) for the first time and subsequent seasons how many points or intersections should you be staking? Here's my quick calculations and why these are staking points for pulling a string line when marking a football field.
"Mandatory" staking points
4 - Four primary corners of the soccer field playing boundary, a "squared" field
8 - Goalie Box line both ends of the field (each corner of the box)
8 - Penalty Box line both ends of the field (each corner of the box)
2 - Midfield Line, at the Touch Line
2 - Penalty Kick Spot
3 - Center point of field, Center of each goal 27 - Subtotal
"Optional" staking points
2 - Halfway Line Flag
4 - Coach and Team Area, each corner, 10 foot off the touchline at 30 feet between each area
4 - Media safety zone, 12 foot off the sideline from four major corners
4 - Hash Mark, behind the
8 - Photographer Line, varies from 15' to 18' behind End Line
4 - Spectator Line, 20' from Touch and End Line 26 - Subtotal

Stake All Integrated Marking Whisker and Plastic Stake--Suggested Use
A prospective customer asks, "I some questions about your stake all integrated marking whisker and plastic stake. I was wondering if they came in any different sizes besides 6 in? Also are they reusable."
unit is basically designed for one a one-time use. The hard plastic
stake will last indefinitely while the marking whisker will fade in
color over time due the UV exposure.
The lip that holds the marking whisker is not that durable where if you
pulled on the whiskers you would likely break the lip and leave the
stake in the ground. A ½” diameter rod is used to drive the plastic
stake into the turf/ground. I would not recommend directly hammering the
stake into the ground as this lip would not likely survive multiple
hammer contacts. The unit could be pulled out of the ground with a
clamping tool, however I suspect the plastic body would likely crack
given two much force.
The marking whiskers are a standard 6” in length but can be easily trimmed to a shorter length (e.g., to the height of the grass) with a standard hand clipper/side cutting tool.
We’ve had over 20 customers representing over 150 sets of 5 per package Stake Alls. We’ve not received one negative comment on the operational use or durability of this product.
With busy schedules sport field marking operations staff save time by using the product without having to take time to mix, then dilute with water and finally remix. Just mix/stir the product, if at all necessary, once the paint lid is removed and now you are ready for the application using a walk-behind or self-propelled field marking unit. Just open the lid, ensure the formulation is well mixed, possibly remix before use , then use right out of the pail or pour into another paint container. I use a paint paddle connected to an electric or cordless drill for remixing operations.
A customer's special field marking requirements can now be met with many vibrant colors, especially for custom field stencil painting and multi-use fields that are being used by two or more sport activities during the same time of year. Being able to quickly apply different colored lines on the same sports field helps reduce the overall time in field marking operations.
Since this product is latex based it is easy to cleanup after. This product can be diluted to a ratio of 1 to 1 for those practice fields where high visibility is not as important while trying to improve on overall cost savings.
Titan Powrliner Spray Shield Accessory for all Speeflo Line Stripers
Powrliner Spray Shield Assembly
After over two years Titan Tool has come out with their Powrliner Spray Shield assembly that will fit all Titan Powrliner liner marking units, and many other line stripers on the market. When Titan Tool introduce the Powrliner 550 and 850 into the turf line marketplace the one feature they lacked was paint or spray shields to ensure a crisp line no matter the grass or terrain conditions.
The unit is easily installed with a standard clamping bracket mounted off the horizontal rod that holds the unit's spray gun assembly. This accessory will be an effective after market item and with the initial line striping unit purchase. As with many paint/spray shield assemblies this will support sports field marking operations no matter the height of the grass as well as different line widths. Even in high wind conditions this spray shield will work well for pavement striping operations to reduce drift.
Sports Field and Yard Stencils for the 4th of July and Cancer Awareness Celebrations
Do you have a special event coming up and would like to make a "splash"? Check out our Featured Products for those
upcoming summer and fall events, July 4th celebrations and different cancer awareness
months. Our custom stencil Patriotic Star with Aerosol Paint or Chalk package is a favorite.
We do offer mixed case orders, just add a little extra time for handling purposes. For example 4 cans each of white, blue, and red. I would suggest paint an all white background and then over painting the blue and red to help the colors stand out. So maybe a 6 white, 3 red and 3 blue can order will work better for your facility and event.
A recent customer of theirs tried to connect with the company but was unsuccessful. If you are a Fox Valley paint customer please consider Tru Mark Athletic Field Marker variety of aerosol paint products for your field marking requirements. Our pricing, especially a multiple case order, is very competitive and delivery times are as quick as anyone in the industry. All aerosol products are shipped by ground transportation. Express delivery service is not available due to the compressed gas in the cans and restrictions by the airline industry.
Soccer Practice Guides for Coaches of Different Aged Players
How do you help coaches with little soccer knowledge and coaching experience to be confident and successful? One way is to provide coaching aids such as activity guides that they can use to help organize practice while providing useful skill development drills.
The US Youth Soccer Coaching Department has introduced its latest coaching resources with three age-specific practice activity guides. The three guides — for the U6-U8, U-10 and U-12 age groups — give coaches an idea of what should be covered throughout a season while highlighting activities that focus on development in a low-stress, fun-filled environment. The practice activity guides can be very beneficial to those new to
coaching youth soccer and act as a useful resource for experienced youth
Each resource covers multiple types of practice activities, from warm-ups and individual training to small-sided and group games. The exercises are tailored to meet the cognitive and physical characteristics of each age group.
The guides each contain individual activity descriptions with accompanying coaching points, so coaches are aware of what to watch for during each exercise. With 20 sessions broken down in each guide, there are more than enough activities to meet the needs of any youth soccer season. US Youth Soccer U6-U8 Practice Activities (2 MB PDF)

Two(2) Can Aerosol Paint/Chalk Line Striper Benefits
Why is a two(2) can inverted aerosol can line painter more beneficial than a single can aerosol athletic line striper? There are several reasons that an organization would consider a 2 can line striper to include additional versatility, time savings, better paint coverage, and crisper looking lines. Let me explain in more detail.
A two(can) aerosol can line field striper provides the sports field marking staff the option to use either one or two cans. For example, to improve coverage for a game field a two can operation is performed while a practice field needs a more economical one(1) can application.
Time savings for the athletic field striper operation is achieved through better coverage on one pass versus going over the same line twice. The field marking staff may be able to walk at a quicker pace with the 2 can operation while applying a quality line.
The two offset (versus vertical) aerosol cans held by the chassis provides much better turf grass coverage which typically is needed when the grass is mowed in different directions causing the grass blade to lay over. This two can application generates a crisper line due to the grass blade being covered on both sides also increasing longevity of the painted line.
I would suggest that the two(2) aerosol field line striper will provide a much better quality line when aerosol chalk is used for temporary field marking requirements on synthetic turf fields. We are finding more youth sports associations are using city/school facilities but not allowed to use removal field marking paints nor do they have ready access to airless line striping equipment. Thus for a weekend tournament the two(2) can aerosol line striper with aerosol chalk of different colors (white, yellow, blue, red) is a inexpensive and effective solution. The aerosol chalk once it dries performs just like traditional powdered chalk so foot traffic, broom action, and water removes the product, no special cleaning solutions, equipment, or additional time.
Lacrosse Field Markings on Football and Soccer Field.
What does the field look like when you stripe a lacrosse field on an existing marked sports field? This has become a common question for a lot of sports clubs that are playing on fields that were installed for other sporting events. What colors should you use? Is there any hard and fast rules on the color of lines? What are other facilities using, especially on the synthetic or artificial surface sports fields?
Each state high school sports association may have designed color schemes in their by-laws when marking fields that are used for multiple sports. Tru Mark for the most part has seen only white lines for football fields, yellow (or possibly black) for soccer, blue and red lines for lacrosse are very common. Once the athletes understand the colored markings there seems to be little problem with distinguishing the boundary lines for their particular sport.
Typically most high schools will have the football field lines sewn into the artificial turf surface, possibly soccer field lines as well in a different color, typically yellow or in more recent cases black. More club and youth sports associations are wanting access to these synthetic turf venues. Facility managers are trying to balance the needs with the operations and maintenance of these facilities. Some facilities are using permanent and removable paints (such as Tru Mark TrailBlazer formulations, Rally Day removable and Solar Trail permanent) to support these other sporting events while others want a more temporary and less resource intensive product that doesn't require a lot of cleaning and paint removal. This has lead to the introduction of aerosol (DuraStripe Chalk) and liquid bulk chalk (Tru Mark SwitchBack Double Play liquid chalk) solutions.
To help with laying out a lacrosse field, man and women, no matter the size request a copy of the Lacrosse Field Layout Tool. It is a MS Excel template with formulas to calculate the distances from the center and two end points on the field.
