Citywide Sports staff will make updates by 2:00 p.m., Monday to Friday or by 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. In the event that the Field Conditions Hotline has not been updated or is unavailable, groups are expected to make educated and responsible decisions regarding field conditions. 

Fields will be closed if ANY of the following conditions exist:

  • A steady rain is falling
  • Standing water
  • A lightning or electrical storm is occurring 
    • Evacuate the field immediately and seek shelter
  • “Squishy” sound made or “spongy” feel when walking on the turf and/or footstep leaves an imprint in the turf
  • Have mud on the bottom of your shoes and/ or sod is removed easily with a cleat

 It is very important when fields are closed that no play is allowed due to safety issues and the preservation of the turf.
