Field Closure Guidelines for Athletic Fields

The Evendale Recreation Department (ERD) is committed to providing quality playing sport facilities for the primary benefit of Evendale residents and those that work full-time at an Evendale business.  The field use policy was developed to enable the ERD to provide first-class, safe facilities for youth and adult athletes.  By following this policy, the community and ERD together can assure a positive and safe athletic experience for all.

Play under wet conditions is the most limiting factor in providing quality athletic fields.   The ERD will not allow play when field conditions may contribute to unsafe play or when use would damage the fields and significantly lessen their safety and suitability for future play.

If any of the following conditions exist, the athletic fields will be closed:

  1. When soil moisture is so high that there is standing water or muddy conditions, which could compromise the safety of the players or negatively impact the future playability of the athletic field.  This includes high traffic areas such as goal and home plate areas.
  2. Turf that is saturated to such a level that activities on the field would cause thinning of the turf, damage to the soil structure, divots which may dry to uneven surface, or cause further damage to already work areas.
  3. The presence of frost or frozen turf conditions. (Foot traffic in these conditions will kill the grass plant.)

At the ERD discretion, the above standards may be amended when making decisions for games, tournaments or special events.  The ERD shall have the power to make decisions on any points or information not specifically covered in this policy.

The ERD will make a decision on whether to close fields no later than two hours prior to the first scheduled game time and update the weather hotline and website.  If rain begins within two hours prior to the first scheduled game, the ERD employee is responsible for making the decision to close a field if turf conditions become unsafe, and notification above would be the same.  If inclement weather arrives in the area once a scheduled game begins or during a game, the referee or game official, will make the decision to cancel the game/close the field.

For questions on these guidelines, please call the ERD at 513-563-2247.
