Field Status Reports
The Sports Field Inspection program is a weekly information update that reports on the overall conditions of the city's outdoor athletic sports fields. Information is gathered on specific sports field assets as they relate to the safety and playability for the outdoor sports community.
A "CLOSED" status indicates the field is unavailable for play until the next inspection date. Occasionally, some closed fields can be reversed upon the verbal authorization from City of Surrey staff, if environmental and/or playability considerations warrant.
A "CD" or Club Discretion status was developed to help during periods of unsettled weather. The "CD" designation provides greater latitude to Club officials during periods of rapidly changing environmental conditions. This latitude of whether to Open or Close fields is typically made by club officials less than 24 hours before game time, providing the best opportunity to ensure optimum play, or conversely, to protect field surfaces from damage due to play in inclement weather.
As a general rule, if environmental and field conditions remain the same or improve, based upon the city's current field inspection report, the field is considered "Open". If the weather pattern deteriorates, the field should be "Closed".
