Inclement Weather Policy

CYSA is proud of the nine natural turf fields it has constructed or refurbished at five sites in Chelmsford to serve the association and its programs. Each field was constructed to be level and well drained, even under the most severe rains. All fields are carefully maintained to ensure a safe and quality playing surface. CYSA's comprehensive maintenance program is designed to keep our fields in top playing condition throughout each season.


CYSA's policy for inclement weather is as follows:

  1. CYSA endeavors to conduct all practices and games as scheduled unless field conditions are determined to be unsafe. The responsibility for that determination lies exclusively with CYSA's Field Manager or the Referee on the field at game time.
  2. In the event of severe or prolonged inclement weather, the CYSA Field Manager will inspect each field looking for standing water and other unsafe conditions.
    • Based on the conditions observed on the field and the weather forecast, the field manager will close the field until further notice if unsafe conditions are present. Field closures will be posted to the CYSA website.
    • If no unsafe conditions are present, or those conditions are expected to be eleviated before the next scheduled event, the field will remain open and final determination will be left to the Referee at game time.
  3. Unless a cancellation notice is posted to the CYSA web site, coaches and players are expected to arrive at their assigned field ready to play. Teams that do not wait for an official determination before departing the field or fail to appear risk forfeiting the game.
  4. The Referee can make a final determination on field conditions just prior to a game or at any time during a game. If the Referee determines that field conditions are unsafe and cannot support play without undue risk of injury to the players, the game will be suspended.
  5. Coaches, parents and players have no role in the decision to cancel a game due to weather, it is up to the Field Manage and the Referee.
