Weather in Victoria can change on a dime and our volunteers work hard to be consistent and diligent in making park status decisions.
If Saanich Parks closes the fields due to rain or field conditions it will be posted on our website/facebook by 4:30pm for weekday games and by discretion on weekends.
Weekday: No post at 4:30pm ==> Head to the park prepared to play ball
Weekend: No post 90 minutes prior ==> Head to the park prepared to play ball
The Park Supervisor onsite will then watch for field safety >> PARK OPEN/CLOSED final decision up to 5:30pm (weekday games)
If park closes, ALL GAMES are cancelled for the evening
If park is OPEN after 5:30pm (or 30 minutes pre-game) then it is the sole discretion of the Plate Umpire for each field respectively
Note: On weekends, every effort will be made to make a sound and timely call. Generally, if it is a park closure call, it will be made around 9:30am. Otherwise, if weather is unpredictable the park announcements will me made 90 minutes prior to first game. (Plate Umpire deciding thereafter)
Please remember SAFETY is always the number one priority
