Soccer Fields & Status

Inclement Weather Protocols

Generally speaking, the protocol for rain is:

  • Artificial Turf Fields: Game ON if your match is on turf (unless there's lightning - then pause the game, wait 30min, resume if no more lightning).

  • Grass Fields: Closures are on a per-pitch basis (some fields can handle more water than others).

IMPORTANT: Do not assume that a game later in the day is cancelled just because a morning game may be ... CHECK the FIELD STATUS before your game. If a pitch can stay open or be re-opened, it will be. ​And per our Rainout Policy, "if a team fails to show up for a game that has not been canceled, [the team] shall be awarded a loss and be required to pay the forfeit penalty."

Pitch LogisticsField Etiquette

  • Snack Location: Have snacks outside the field area, not on the pitch. There is no food allowed on the artificial turf.

  • NO DOGS are allowed on any athletic field. (San Francisco Park & Rec Code 7.1 Sec. 5.02) Please leave your pet at home or keep to the sidewalks or outside fenced in areas, particularly at Polo & Grattan.

  • Pack it In, Pack it Out. We are responsible for making sure that all trash is removed from fields. If trash cans are full or unavailable, take your garbage with you.

  • Is someone playing on your field? Double check your permit or the schedule and the field map to make sure you're in the right spot. The majority of the fields are open to the public, but must be vacated for permitted users. In case of any disputes, call SF Park Rangers for assistance: (415) 242-6390.
