James took our remote area lighting units, called All-Terrain Lentry® Portable Light Systems, to his son’s youth soccer practice and determined that they’re GREAT solutions for lighting soccer fields, football fields, and other sporting practices. Please note that while they are great for practices, Lentry Lights should not be used for competitions.
Many of our clients wish to extend team practices in fall and winter when daylight hours are limited. Until now, they have been stuck renting tow-behind trailer-mounted generators with light masts (up to $1000 a month), or struggling with with inadequate, low-output, difficult work lights.
Pictures on this page were taken during youth soccer practices and at a soccer field lighting demonstration. (Click images to enlarge.)
Conclusion: Lentry Portable Lighting Systems are good alternatives to large commercial lighting systems and economical long-term investments for sports associations needing to light remote areas that are often inaccessible by vehicle and without power.
Having tested the lights ourselves on several unlit soccer fields at night, as well as feedback received from our valued customers, we have different recommendations based on the size of field you are trying to light. For example, two separate lights are great for lighting a half of field for practices, while four lights are better at lighting an entire field for scrimmages.
Multiple lights not only give you the advantage of aiming in opposite directions, but systems can be placed on opposite corner of the field with the lights all facing center field. This helps minimize any shadows that can be caused with a single light.
