Due to the wet weather received this week, sport clients should be aware that fields have wet/soft areas existing. HRM Operations staff have been working to try and prep fields for weekend play ...
Ball Diamonds and Sport Fields for which contracts have been issued are OPEN for play today...Please ensure that officials review field conditions prior to allowing games/practices to proceed, and that conditions continue to be monitored for the entire period of time that you are using your field. If there is any risk at all that a player could be injured or if there is the potential of damaging field turf, we ask that you do not play and that you do not use excessive means to prepare fields for play. THIS INCLUDES THE REMOVAL OF INFIELD MIX. You are responsible for any and all damages as outlined in your facility rental contract.
To report improper use of fields or to advise of any safety concerns, vandalism, maintenance issues, etc., contact our Corporate Call Centre
The Harbour East and Mainland Common All Weather Sport Facilities are open for play on a daily basis as scheduled. Should either of the all weather fields need to be closed for any reason, you would be notified directly, as quickly as possible by staff.
Any damages caused to any and all turf as a result of unscheduled or unauthorized use could impact the ability to open fields for play. Any use of HRM facilities without the appropriate authorization or when fields are closed will result in fines and possible loss of future scheduling privileges.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FACILITY RENTAL CONTRACTS ARE REQUIRED FOR ANY AND ALL USE OF HRM OUTDOOR ATHLETIC FACILITIES.
