Wet Weather

Wet weather occasionally forces training and games to be cancelled.

Once we know that Council have closed the grounds, the Club Secretary will fire out an email to all team coaches and managers and update the website.

The website will display an OPEN or CLOSED for training and games in the top right corner of the home page.

In the event of wet weather, here is what to do:

Training:

During the week, Sutherland Shire Council determines if fields are playable. If the grounds are closed, under NO circumstances is training to go ahead, as Council can impose fines against the Club. In the event of wet weather:

  • Check the website for updates.
  • Check with your team manager and/or coach.

You can call the Sutherland Shire Council Wet Weather Line 9710 0105 to find out if fields are open/closed. NOTE: Council may leave grounds open, but we may close our grounds due to the state of our field. It is always best to checkour website

Game days:

ALWAYS ASSUME YOU ARE PLAYING UNTIL TOLD OTHERWISE

The SSFA and the Clubs determine if games are played. The Council Wet Weather Line doesn’t apply on the weekends. In the event of wet weather:

  • Check the website for updates.
  • Check with your team manager and/or coach.

For early games, the decision may not come before you need to leave for the game. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable, due to the grounds not being inspected by the individual Clubs between 6.30 am and 7.00am.

Also note that just because some games are called off, others may go ahead. Eg. morning games could be off, while afternoon games are on.
