Field Closing Policy
Users must check their field’s status BEFORE PLAYING to ascertain if it is open. When a field is closed, the field may not be played on under any circumstances. Anyone who plays or practices on a closed field will be subject to a $150 fine per field, plus damages and may be subject to a one-year suspension of eligibility for use of any APD field, even if coaches and/or officials are not present. The loss of rental revenue may also be assessed and included in the invoice if the field is rendered unplayable due to the action of the offender.
Closing Ball Diamonds
The condition of each ball diamond will be posted on the Rainout Line app and website; however, generally the closing of ball diamonds is the responsibility of either the coach, umpire, or league supervisor as decided by the individual league. When fields are over saturated, APD may close fields for a set period of time, prohibited any repairs/field maintenance from being conducted by certified field repairers. This may be necessary to allow a field time to recover enough to safely perform maintenance without causing damage to the field. Any field closure will be communicated as “red” and “closed” on the Rainout Line app and website, AndersonPark.com, and by calling (513) 443-3003. Representatives of teams may work on ball diamonds ONLY after completing the park district Ball Diamond Repair Workshop. Organizations or individuals who damage a field through improper maintenance may be subject to a fine.
Note: The Anderson Park District and their respective Boards and Staff assume no liability in the event of accident or injury and make no warranty as to the playing conditions that may exist on any of the facilities they provide. If league representatives or referees deem conditions, including weather or other factors, to render a field unsafe, they must stop play immediately. All fields should be vacated if lightning or any other element is present which threatens the safety of the participants.
