RAIN OUT PROCEDURE
“It’s raining! Is there going to be a game?”
Here’s what to do:
- Check the website the morning of the game
- Check the club’s Facebook page for updates at Scotts Valley / San Lorenzo Valley Soccer Club
County Field Hotline: 831-454-7906
Call this number for county field closures – Highlands Park
Santa Cruz City Club Hotline: 831-460-2549
Call this number for Santa Cruz City Club field closures – Harvey West, Depot Park, etc.
When adverse weather is present (either the day of the game or the days preceding a game), the club will make a determination as to whether games will be played by 8:00 a.m. the day of the game. An announcement will be put on this page and the Facebook page indicating any field closures. Please note that it does not have to be raining to have field closures. If saturation occurs (irrespective of the presence of rain), the fields will be closed because it may be dangerous to play on those fields. Also, please note that it is possible that some fields may be closed and others open, depending upon the specific field conditions at each location.
The club’s paramount concern in evaluating field closures is the safety of the children and the potential for damage to the fields. Thus, when the fields are closed, they are not to be used for games or practices, as the club has made a determination that such use presents a risk to the children and will damage the fields for future use.
Any team that violates this policy may be subject to suspension from club activities or other sanctions, as appropriate.
