One of the most successful and tradition-rich high school football programs in Iowa, Valley High School in West Des Moines is home to the state’s largest stadium. School leaders wanted to ensure that they would continue offering an exceptional experience at Valley Stadium, and embarked on a facility upgrade to include new field turf and state-of-the-art LED lighting. After exploring several options for lighting, the school determined that Musco’s TLC for LED® system was the only solution that could meet all of its needs, as well as an added benefit – the Show-Light entertainment package for professional-level special effects and light shows.

  • Players and fans enjoy an unforgettable game night experience with the system’s variety of exciting light shows for player introductions, halftime, big plays, and post-game celebrations.
  • The school district was able to realize additional savings on its new lighting by retrofitting the TLC for LED system with new structural cross arms onto the stadium’s existing poles.
  • West Des Moines residents living near the stadium aren’t affected by glare or spill light as a result of the system’s patented visoring and precise light control.
  • Fans attending games in the 15,000-seat stadium won’t be blinded due to, again, the system’s patented glare control technology, which set it apart from other LED lighting the school considered.
  • The school district won’t have to pay for maintenance until 2044 with Musco’s 25-year warranty that covers every part and all labor.
