Sidelines Field Striping offers Professional Field Striping
Sidelines Field Striping offers professional athletic field striping for football, soccer, baseball/softball and lacrosse. It is the brain child of Rusty Judah and Phil Gianfrancesco. While performing their duties as officials, they discovered there were no options for teams and coaches for lining their fields. Phil and Rusty decided to bring Phil’s wife, Mary, on board to help start up the business. Their mission is to take over striping your field, so volunteers can be used elsewhere and coaches can focus on getting their team ready for game day. Their prices are reasonable and they offer “Game Day Packages” for football fields. They can design and cut customized stencils for the middle of the field, or paint one you already have. Get ready for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sidelines can paint the PINK 6’ Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon on your field for $25 each. Visit www.sidelinesfs.com or call 440-3021.
