Referees/coaches are required to make the appropriate game day decisions concerning field playability. Poor decisions regarding playability will result in field closures for the following weekend.

If water has accumulated in the goal mouth area, user groups are advised not to play as damage under these conditions is most likely to cause closure of the fields. Practicing is prohibited in the goal mouths to reduce the amount of wear and tear.  Field lines should be maintained weekly for visibility; please ensure that there is a one metre set back along the side lines.

Important Information:

  • Closed fields cannot be reopened by coaches, referees or associations.
  • Fields are not to be used for practice sessions. Practices should be held at all-weather facilities.
