Work With a Company that Cares About Your District and Community

Bleacher Safety Compliance

According to the Minnesota statute, schools and parks are required to recertify their indoor and outdoor bleachers every 5 years. Once you receive your bleacher inspection, we help you make the repairs to receive your bleacher inspection certification.

Serving Midwest Urban and Rural Communities

Based in Minnesota, we serve parks, municipalities, and schools across the Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa. Our team will travel to your site for all your recreational maintenance and installation needs.

Urgent Repairs and Long-Term Planning

As your full-service, experienced partner, we can quickly respond to your school or park districts’ urgent requests or help plan long-term projects regarding parks, courts, gymnasiums, and other recreational areas.

Competitive Pricing for Partners

By partnering with SafetyFirst, your school or park district will receive competitive rates for recreational services. We care about the safety of your recreational areas and will work with you and your budget so you can maintain beautiful and compliant facilities.

Recreational Services for Schools and Parks

For school districts, we are your single partner for all your recreational sites and gymnasiums. Many school districts benefit from indoor and outdoor bleacher repairs while preparing for sports seasons. And with students loving the up-and-coming game gaga, we help install gaga ball courts.

For parks and municipalities, we repair and install recreational events to brighten up your community. We’ll repair your outdoor basketball courts, hoops, and backboards for fresh-looking courts or install a variety of park amenities such as benches and trash cans.

Our Recreation Installation and Repair Process

1. Send a photo of the repair or explain the installation project

If you are inquiring about a recreational maintenance request, we ask you to send pictures of the part or equipment. For new installations, we will do an initial call to discuss the project details.

2. Provide a quote for repairs or installations

Based on our initial conversation or site visit, we’ll provide a quote for services. We consider your budget when making repair recommendations and help you prioritize maintenance based on safety compliance or immediate needs.

3. Order repair parts and products

Once the project is approved, we will take care of ordering all the parts. There is no need to contact the different manufacturers or find the parts; we will ensure we have everything required for the repair installation.

4. Work around your schedule

We provide flexible visits, including evenings and weekends, to fit around your school or park schedule. Since we are well-prepared beforehand, we can promptly make the repairs or complete the installation to reduce recreational downtime.

5. Need an urgent fix?

As your partner, we will accelerate the process when your school or park is in a time crunch. Are you 3 hours away from game time and your basketball hoop isn’t working? No problem! We are here for you.

Specializing in Basketball Hoops and Gaga Pits

Basketball is a staple at many schools and parks. We provide outdoor court striping to offer an appealing and functional court. Our team also repairs indoor and outdoor basketball backboards and hoops to remove cloudiness, replace nets, or refresh paint.

Gaga pits are the next big thing. If you are looking to install one, we will help you develop your gaga pit plans. We provide outdoor gaga pit flooring for existing courts, including turf, poured in place, or concrete.

Other Recreational Services FAQs

How can I get my bleacher inspection certification?

If your bleacher inspection indicated your outdoor or indoor bleacher wasn’t in compliance, you can send us a copy of your report. We will provide a quote of necessary bleacher repairs to get your bleacher in compliance.

What should I use for my outdoor gaga pit flooring?

At SafetyFirst, we provide different outdoor gaga pit flooring options, including turf, poured in place, or concrete. Our goal is to provide an option that will reduce nurse visits by helping you select the best material for your school or park. We will add flooring to your existing gaga ball court or during gaga pit installs.

How to repair basketball backboards at parks or schools?

At SafetyFirst, we can do many things to repair basketball backboards without replacing the basketball hoop for a more cost-effective and sustainable option. For example, we can refurbish and replace just the backboard so the hoop looks new again.

How to repair bleachers if the manufacturer or parts are no longer available?

To receive your bleacher inspection certification, we can help get your old bleachers back into compliance without the expense of replacing your bleachers. Using custom fabrication, we create the parts needed to repair your indoor or outdoor bleachers.

What’s your recreational repair or installation project?

I have been using SafetyFirst surfacing material in my district’s playgrounds for several years now. We have been very impressed with the quality and impact attenuation of this product. I would highly recommend it for any organization looking for a quality, long lasting product for their playground surfacing needs.

Facilities and Safety Coordinator
Eden Prairie Schools, ISD 272

In my nearly 30 years of facility management, SafetyFirst is the finest playground service company I have worked with, Bob Clarin, president of SafetyFirst was always available and was on site daily. From the simplest repair, a missing bolt to a complete rebuild including drainage and play structure relocation, SafetyFirst completed the work well and on time.

Supervisor of Buildings & Grounds
Roseville Schools, ISD 623

I would like to express my satisfaction with the wood chips and mats that we have purchased from SafetyFirst. The chips bind together well to make a nice playground surface with the fall protection we need. Bob has always had the materials delivered on a timely basis and is very pleasant to work with. I am sure we will be doing more business Bob and SafetyFirst in the future.
