Field Rules and Access
Piedmont Soccer Club uses many fields for practices and games. Please respect the rules at each field (time of use, lighting, and field boundaries) and please leave the field in good shape with all trash and water bottles picked up at the end of every event.
Please see below for information specific to each field. Ask your AC for any other details, including lock combination for goals.
If you find any issues with our fields (missing keys or locks, goal issues, lights not working, etc.) please contact the PSC Field Coordinator.
How Do I Know If A Field Is Open For Practice?
Grass field closures on practice days will be shown on PSC home page. Broadly speaking, grass fields are typically closed during and the day after any material rain (to protect them).
Turf fields are typically open during rain and can be used if the coach deems it safe.
IMPORTANT: players, coaches, and all other participants should vacate their field if there is any sign or threat of lightning.
How Do I Know If A Field Is Open For A Game?
Field closures on game days will be determined by the league (JLYSL or NorCal), typically by 7:00 am, though it’s somewhat dependent on the timing of any inclement weather (e.g. storm that starts midday)
Call JLYSC Rain Out Hot-Line @ (510) 812-6051 to determine if fields are open. To simplify and help ensure a common understanding, we ask that only the Team manager or coach call the number and then inform team with updated field status.
If you are playing on a field that is not controlled by JLYSL, the team manager or coach should call the opposing team coach or manager to coordinate (contact info should be listed on mysoccerleague.com or gotsoccer.com)
Please note that turf field closures on game days will be at the discretion of JLYSL or the referee (not the coaches).
