Rain Out

What if it is raining? Who do I call.

Call the City of Fort Saskatchewan at 780.992.6250. This is their sport field information line.

The City of Fort Sask. determines when soccer fields are open. During heavy or prolonged rain, play is not allowed on the fields.

Please do not call the offices of Fort Saskatchewan Soccer or Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports. They can only refer you to the City's sport field information line.


It is raining out; should we play?

There are only 3 reasons that rain stops soccer.

#1 - The fields are closed by the City - The teams DO NOT show up for these games.

#2 - Fields are open but the Referee has determined that damage may happen to the field or a player may
        get hurt due to the field conditions. - Teams MUST show up for the game.

#3 - Fields are open but the referee has determined by following the lightening rule that the game is 
        postponed or cancelled. Teams MUST show up for the game.


In Fort Saskatchewan you can call the "Activity/Sport Field Information Line" at 780-992-6250 for field closures. The city info line is updated daily (Monday to Friday) at 4 pm weekdays.

If conditions are too wet/dangerous and the city has indicated the fields are closed, please contact your coach.

 In some cases heavy rain or lightening can occur after 4 p.m. In this case only the referee can cancel the game, therefore both teams have to be present at the game and await the referee's decision. If the fields are deemed unsafe due to heavy rain the referee may decide to cancel the game.

When Fort Saskatchewan sports fields are closed teams can practice on the green space surrounding the sports fields, just not on the actual sports field.
