The Keystone Athletic Field Managers Organization was formed in 1994 by a small group of individuals who were concerned about the quality of the athletic fields in Pennsylvania. In 1997, KAFMO became incorporated as a chapter of the Sports Turf Managers Association.  Today, KAFMO is over 350 members strong and each individual is committed to enhancing the professionalism of athletic field managers in the Keystone State.

KAFMO’s goals are to improve the safety, playability and appearance of all athletic fields in Pennsylvania.  As an organization we strive to accomplish our goals through seminars, field days, publications and networking with other professionals in the sports turf industry.


KAFMO in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Recreation and Parks Society and the Pennsylvania Park Maintenance Institite held "KAFMO Konversations" on Friday, February 19. Experience the konversation and eavesdrop as sports turf managers and turfgrass experts dialogued about everything from spring field preparation to current research projects to future educational opportunities. The legendary George Toma shared his story that includes growing up in the coal country of Pennsylvania and his 80+ years of maintaining athletic fields - and then some.
