Inspected sports fields are either recorded as Open or Closed. Please ensure coaches do not warm up goalies in the goal area.
An Open sports field is available for current user groups as allocated by the Mission Parks, Recreation & Culture Department. Even though sports fields are designated open, pre-game field checks must be completed by the referee and coaches to verify the safety and playability of the turf surface at that time. Fields that have acquired unsafe conditions since the last inspection or are in a position to sustain significant surface damage should be closed at that time. A Closed status indicates the field is unavailable for play until the next inspection date. Occasionally some closed sports fields can be reversed upon the verbal authorization of designated District of Mission staff, if environmental and/or playability considerations warrant. Weather conditions/forecasts should be taken into consideration when fields are in less than satisfactory condition for play. Please consider the safety of the athletes when deciding to use a field. Standing water and/or muddy, mushy conditions are good indicators that marginal fields should not be played on until surface conditions improve substantially.
