Field Status

Inclement weather may close fields; follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest information or call central registration at 519-255-1161 during or after wet weather. The City of Windsor makes a decision in the early afternoon about the status based on the current condition of the benchmark fields and expected impending weather conditions.

Why We Close Fields

The goal is to keep our sports field in optimal and safe condition for all users.

Parks and Recreation reserves the right to cancel the use of all sports fields due to inclement weather conditions. We request your co-operation by not using fields unsuitable for play. This may include:

  1. Water pooling on a playing field;
  2. Wet/muddy field conditions; 
  3. Weather forecasts: the presence of an electrical storm constitutes an immediate closure of the field. We ask for the cooperation of the officials and coaches in order to ensure the safety of the players and spectators. A 30-minute mandatory delay of play is required after lightning is seen. Stadium facilities will be locked and lights turned off.

Please do not attempt to drain fields or remove pooled water on your own. More often than not, considerable damage is done to the playing field rendering it unusable for others.

League convenors, or designates are asked to continually use discretion when playing on potentially wet fields. Causing damage to the fields could result in field closures for extended periods of time and a charge to the individual or group responsible for causing the damage.
