Field Status

Disclaimer: Any rental group and/or individual found to have played on a field that is officially closed may forfeit the right to play for the remainder of the season. There will also be a fine issued to the Association.

The Township of Langley Field Status Report is updated weekly but is subject to change without notice in response to changing weather conditions. It is the responsibility of the user to monitor this site for current field status.

DISCRETION status indicates that the sports field is OPEN under the current conditions; if weather deteriorates and there is potential for the field to become unsafe or damaged, it must be designated as CLOSED by users.

Fields with DISCRETION status shall be inspected two hours prior to game time by the coach of the home team. The home team coach can designate a field as OPEN as long as none of the following exists anywhere on the field:

  • standing water or puddles
  • ground is saturated or spongy
  • muddy areas
  • ice, frost, or frozen ground
  • snow

If the home team coach designates the field as CLOSED, it the responsibility of the home team association to notify the visiting team coach and their association. It is then up to the association to inform the coaches/teams who are scheduled to play later that day of the field's status. The association of the home team must notify the Township of Langley of the field closure by calling the Parks Foreman-On-Call at 604-534-3496.

A CLOSED status indicates a field is unavailable for play.
