Field Conditions

We maintain the grass for 19 soccer, 1 football and 31 ball fields across Saanich. Fields are used by more than 8,000 players annually! To let the grass grow, we do close fields when seasons end.

Ball Diamonds

Any ball field with a area fenced off infield is closed for field maintenance.  The gates to the infield are locked and will remain so until the new season starts in the spring.

Ball fields are available for play when not under permit by home user clubs (you will be asked to leave if the home user group comes to use field when under their permit). Bases are the responsibility of the user group. Inspect fields before use. Do not play if overly wet or frost/snow covered.  Ball diamonds are not available for rent from October to March for field maintenance.

Field Status Key
  • Open:  Fields are open. Clubs must halt play if conditions deteriorate.
  • Club Discretion:  Fields are closed and conditions are marginal. Clubs may open the field, or a part of it, if conditions are suitable for play.
  • Closed:  Fields are closed for all use. They must remain closed until Saanich Parks re-opens them.
  • End of Season:  Fields are undergoing seasonal maintenance and may be unavailable for use.

Note: For Club Discretion status, visit that club’s website for more information. Do not play on fields when there is frost, snow, standing water or unsafe conditions. Conditions may change - clubs may still close fields or delay use at their discretion.

Information on Field Closures

We thank club members who check fields before games. We may close fields due to poor weather conditions, concern for player safety or maintenance needs.

We work closely with clubs, and realize field closures impact thousands of players. We know that fall/winter sports are not fair-weather sports, and players (and parents) are used to playing in the wet and cold.

Please check in with your club to confirm field status prior to use.
