Beginning in the late 1990s, there has been a movement within the industry to quantify performance characteristics that best define "a good sports floor". As a result, our industry has hundreds of different sports flooring systems, each with varying levels of performance. Within this range of system options, there are some common performance characteristics the industry has recognized as being most desired and important.

The AI Program improves installer’s competencies in the installation of MFMA sports flooring systems and provides architects, construction specifiers, and end users with information to make informed choices about the selection of qualified installers and installation companies.


The MFMA provides fantastic training, opportunities, and education for the Sport flooring segment of Maple wood flooring. When you watch NBA games, take a closer look at the beautiful floors each team plays on. Every floor has set standards for installing, finishing, the paint used in graphics, and also the systems that are not visible underneath those floors. These standards meld together to deliver a floor that provides the spring, grip, and performance needed for everything from high school volleyball to NBA games broadcasted across the world.

A huge thank you to the MFMA from our companies and teams. A+ organization.
