Field Closing Procedures
When weather for field conditions require closure of fields, CDYSL has
explicit procedures on how clubs are to do this. The rules
outlined here are excerpted from the Coaches and Managers
If it becomes necessary to close
ALL Club Fields ONLY your Club President or the Field
Coordinator identified on your club’s field commitment forms is
authorized to close them - Individual coaches are NOT.
field closures must be called into CYDSL by your field
coordinator before 4pm on Weekdays and 10am on Sundays.
If not notified by the above
deadlines, field closures can only be handled at the field by
the referee assigned to the game. Failure to notify could
result in significant fines and rescheduling fees. (See
also Fines & fees section)
Once a club field is closed
and/or determined to be unplayable, ALL games scheduled for the
remainder of that day must also be cancelled.
How does my club close a
coordinator contacts CDYSL before 4pm on Weekdays and 10am on Sundays.
