Field Use Policies

When you reserve a field, you assume responsibility for any damage to the fields during their use. You should use your best judgment when determining the playability of an athletic field to ensure the continued health of the turf, sustainability of the field throughout the season and user safety. You should not play on an athletic field if any part of the field becomes unsafe for field users or if conditions exist where use will cause damage to the field, such as:

  • standing water present on any part of the field that cannot be removed without causing damage to the field

  • muddy conditions that will not dry by the start of the game

  • when water can be seen or heard with a footstep while walking on the field

  • when any impression of a footprint is left in the surface while walking on the field of play

  • if water gathers around the sole of a shoe or boot on any portion of the field

Please also observe the following:

  • We do not provide goals. You may bring in portable goals, but they must be removed after each practice or game. We do not allow anchored goals.
  • Fields are not marked. For practices, please use cones or bases. If you need to draw lines for games, please use chalk.

  • Fields do not have complex lighting.

  • Alcohol is prohibited at all fields.
