Sports Cancellations

Not sure if your team is playing due to inclement weather? Call the Inclement Weather Hotline at 501-5132. Please call after 3 p.m. on weekdays and after 7:30 a.m. on weekends.

The two primary considerations we take into account when making field playability decisions are player safety and long-term impact to the field should play take place. Factors that our crews look for that could cause a field to be closed include the following:

  • Muddy, unstable infields
  • Standing water on a field
  • Saturated grass areas
  • Field closed for renovation, repair, or routine maintenance
  • Frozen soil
  • Unsure or slippery footing
  • Grass that may be pulled up by play above normal wear and tear.

We understand that citizens and tournament/league participants enjoy utilizing our athletic facilities, and our crews make every effort to have fields in playable condition. With that being said, Recreation and Parks will make the decision to close fields when field conditions will contribute to unsafe play for participants or could lead to damage that reduces the sustainability for future use. Playing on a field that has been deemed unplayable due to any of the factors listed above can cause damage that renders the field unplayable for the remainder of the season.

Field Closure Process

Each day, Park Services personnel are responsible for checking the conditions of athletic fields that are scheduled to be utilized for practices and/or games. They then report field conditions to the county’s Sports League Coordinators, who update the field playability hotline each day. The hotline is updated with information by 3:00 PM on weekdays (Monday-Friday) and by 7:00 AM on weekends (Saturday & Sunday). The field playability hotline can be accessed by calling (804) 501-5132.
