Rainout - Smokeouts: Field Status
Generally speaking, the protocol for rain is -
- Turf Fields: Game ON if your match is on turf (unless there's lightning - then pause the game, wait 30min, resume if no more lightning).
Grass Fields: Closures are on a per-pitch basis (some fields can handle more water than others).
- Due to the need to announce these during game day, these announces are made via the SFYS Twitter.
IMPORTANT: Do not assume that a game later in the day is cancelled just because a morning game may be ... CHECK the FIELD STATUS before your game. If a pitch can stay open or be re-opened, it will be. And per our Rainout Policy, "if a team fails to show up for a game that has not been canceled, [the team] shall be awarded a loss and be required to pay the forfeit penalty of $100."
If you have any questions that might need an immediate answer, please call/text the game day hotline : 415-794-2974

- Field closures will be designated on site via red and green lights on the restrooms and a sandwich board on the north-side of the field
