Sports Surface Season

Town of LaSalle sports surfaces generally open the first Monday of May and close the Tuesday after Thanksgiving annually.  Factors such as weather conditions and maintenance may alter the opening and closing dates.

Inclement Weather/Poor Field Conditions

The Town of LaSalle is committed to preservation and maintenance of its sports fields for the benefits of its user groups and taxpayers and preserving important Town assets.

i. The Town of LaSalle reserves the right to cancel or suspend permits for games, practices or other uses whenever sports surface conditions could result in damage to the surface or injury to players

ii. Play is not permitted on surfaces that have been closed. If play does take place, the Town will bill the user for damages.

iii. During periods of changeable, adverse weather conditions, where surfaces remain open, team officials will be responsible for pre-game inspections to determine field safety and surface damage potential. If any of the following criteria are met, users should not use or stop using a field:

a. The presence of standing water

b. Water sponges around the foot when walking on a field

c. The game has begun and conditions deteriorate and the field is being damaged.

To determine if a field is safe and playable, the following factors are considered:

i. Evidence of standing or surface water on the playing surface

ii. Field Saturation (the definition of a saturated field is one where the soil cannot absorb any additional moisture. The method to determine if a field is saturated is to walk on the playing surface. If water is present around the foot, then the field is deemed saturated)

iii. Required maintenance or repairs

iv. Safety or liability concerns with the playing surface

The final decision on a field closure is based on actual conditions at the time of inspection, not forecasted conditions. Only authorized Town of LaSalle staff can re-open a previously closed field.

Field status will be updated based on the following schedule:

Morning field use: by 7:30 am Monday through Friday

Afternoon field use: by 12:00 pm Monday through Friday

Evening field use: by 3:00 pm Monday through Friday

Weekend field use: by 7:30 am Saturday and Sunday

Field status will be communicated to user groups and the public through the Town of LaSalle website(Cancellations and Changes page) and social media accounts.
