Message From City of Roseville

Posted by Chris Bracco on Jan 14 2013 at 04:00PM PST

Field closure notifications are not recommendations they are requirements. It is our goal to get the fields open and available for play everyday. The safety of your participants and the potential damage to the fields are our top priority. We try to evaluate fields individually due to drainage issues or absorption capabilities. That is why some fields may be cleared for play while others are not. We also evaluate both the infields and outfields. In some instances we can open an infield for practice while the outfield remains closed. Each season the City of Roseville parks accommodates approximately 5,000 youth sport participants on over 50 fields. We respect and appreciate the relationship we have with the youth leagues, as well as, the service the leagues provides to the children and parents of our community. When individual leagues disregard the City's requirements it impedes our ability to provide safe, quality fields to your participants. It undermines their relationship with other leagues, and also jeopardizes the leagues future use of facilities. Field closure notifications are updated by 3 pm weekdays and 8 am on weekends. We try to allow as much time possible during the day for the fields to recover before making a decision. It is leagues responsibility to check the field conditions and then inform their players, parents, and coaches of any field closures. We appreciate the support of those leagues who truly work in partnership with the City in delivering this message.
