One of our Athletics coaches is trying to find some material to do grip strength exercises with. He has brought up the idea of turf pellets:, but my research does not state anything about anti-microbial growth or not, as this is not its intended use.


What are your colleges doing? How are they keeping it safe for multi-athlete use while limiting exposure to possible skin infections, etc.…


Any help you can provide would be great. Please respond off list to my email: Margaret.smallbrock**At_Symbol_Here**,



Thank you and Happy Holidays,
