Alberni Valley Youth Soccer Association: Field Closures

Field Closure Procedures

While we hope that all games and practices go ahead as scheduled this season, we anticipate that the weather may not cooperate, resulting in periodic field closures. Any decision to close fields is based on a number of factors, including player safety and avoiding (further) damage to fields. Field condition, rather than the weather/temperature outside, is the key consideration.

There are many scenarios to be aware of, and we ask that you respect the decision of AVYSA club officials to close fields (and thereby cancel practices and games). Fields are not closed by the coaches.  Please note that a referee has the responsibility to not play, or to abandon a game, if they feel the conditions are unsafe or unplayable.

You will be notified by email from your coach or you can check the Field Status on the website in the morning of game day.

Thank you,
