Fields must be reserved/scheduled for games and practices. Review the Field & Facilities Guidelines for information on reserving fields. 

Scheduled practice times are 1.5 hours from 4-5:30 p.m.; 5:30-7 p.m.; or 7-8:30 p.m.

Fields do not have to be reserved for practice; drop-ins are welcome if the fields are open for use. Please note, if a ball field has been prepped, this would indicate a game is scheduled to occur; do not use a prepped field for practice. Additionally, if a team shows confirmation of field reservation drop-in users must leave the field.

If fields are closed for any reason notices will be posted at the park. Adhere to all closure notices so that fields may be reopened and ready for play.

The Parks Department relies on coaches to make practice/game-time decisions. Some of the following are reasons to cancel:

  • Standing Water on the Field(s)
  • Fields are Slippery or Unsafe
  • Turf Tears Underfoot
  • Drought Related Conditions
