    Had to set up and maintain football, soccer, boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse (nightmare), baseball, and softball when I worked at the prep school. You couldn’t pay me enough to do that again.

    Girls lax was the worst. Felt like I needed a mathematics degree for the initial set up.

    So what are you guys charging or seeing for rates? I was asked today for a football field. I already stripe parking lots but my striper is too big for a sports field but if I can get a decent price, I have no problem purchasing another machine but then I am speaking with the school for a contract of x years.

    well from what I gather, ball park figures are 5-600 range for initial layout/measuring/ painting from scratch. for a basic practice football field.

    To re paint... just tracing would be 300 dollar range.
