TFC has begun alternating practices between BMO and a natural grass field in Oakville.

Complaints about the hard texture of the FieldTurf system have dogged the three-year-old BMO facility and supposedly turned off free agents.

"We need to get a decent grass pitch to train on," coach Chris Cummins said yesterday. "It's important to either manage the training as best we can (at BMO) or find a really good grass pitch, because their bodies, day in and day out, can't take the pounding."

A change is being considered.
