Field Status Reports

    User groups must follow the Guidance for Organized Outdoor Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation . In addition to government orders and guidelines, user groups must be sanctioned by and follow their provincial or national sport governing body’s guidelines related to COVID-19.  All group leaders and coaches will be responsible for ensuring their participants observe regulations and guidelines and are reinforcing the message of physical distancing.

    Compliance with Alberta Health Services guidelines by participants, user groups and the public is required to ensure we all support Alberta’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If there is non-compliance to the public health guidelines, or the health guidelines change, the fields and/or diamonds may be closed.

    Status of Fields & Diamonds

    Parks crews regularly inspect the baseball diamonds and fields in Town, but this webpage is only updated when there are changes to the status of the fields and diamonds.  Changes to field status will be posted to this webpage by 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.  No changes of status are posted after 4 p.m.  

    We recognize that this outdoor season will look and feel different and there is some important information to note:

    1. A limited number of fields (approx. 9) and diamonds (approx. 8) will be available to use. Please check the field status listing below for a list of open facilities.  
    2. All field and diamond use will require a booking and rental agreement. 
    3. Town service levels are reduced due to reduced staffing and financial resources:
      • Parks maintenance is operating on a once-per-week mowing cycle with fields at 3 inches-lines that are painted may be affected by mowing.
      • Diamond shale maintenance will be once per week. User groups can provide their own rake if they wish.
      • The majority of outdoor restrooms remain closed. Visit the COVID-19 information page to see the restrooms that are open.
      • Moving bleachers and/or goal posts will not be accommodated.
    4. No surfaces including benches and bleachers will be sanitized.

    About Field Status Updates

    Poor weather conditions or unsafe field conditions are the primary reasons for sports field closures. Experience has shown that most turf damage occurs with field overuse or use during inclement weather. If your home field is damaged as a result of play during inclement weather the Parks Department may not be able to provide an alternative facility. Thus it is in everyone's interest to ensure that fields are not used when play damages the playing surface. In order to meet the demand for high quality fields, and ensure a safe playing field, both weather and field conditions are monitored on a weekly basis to ensure that scheduled games and practices do not:

    • Cause abnormal damage to the field surface
    • Jeopardize further scheduled use of fields
    • Compromise personal safety of league players or general public

    When a field is closed, it is the responsibility of sport team coaches to ensure that fields are not played upon. It takes the efforts of every player, parent and coach to help prevent damage and maintain satisfactory field conditions.  Any teams caught playing on the field may forfeit the right to play on that field for the remainder of the season.
