WVSL Field status Open/Closed

If it is raining on a Friday/Saturday night we will call off games ONLY if the rain is so heavy that the fields are already too wet to play on.

BUT if the fields are ok we will wait until Saturday/Sunday morning to call the games. Luckily we live in So Cal and we can have healthy rains on a Friday/Saturday night and wake up Saturday/Sunday morning to sunny skies. That said, we are at the mercy of the schools and if they do not want us on the fields, we will not find out until we get to the school grounds on Saturday/Sunday morning at 8:30 AM. At that point, we will put it on the web site as soon as physically possible.

So if you have the first game of the day you will have to go to the fields regardless. (sorry)

All WVSL fields are CLOSED today 10/11 for practices, AND tomorrow 10/12 for games.

Due to the air quality in the valley 

We hope that everybody in our WVSL family stays safe.

We are working on the logistics of potentially adding another weekend

Pierce College -  fields CLOSED

A.C. Stelle -         fields CLOSED

Hale MS -             fields CLOSED

Columbus  -         fields  CLOSED

Round Meadow - fields CLOSED

Bay Laurel  -         fields CLOSED

Shadow Ranch Park - 

 

It is more the rain the day or night before a game that causes us to cancel games, 
rather than the weather at game time. We can play in the rain But a heavy evening rain will turn a field into mud.

WVSL Rules for Playing in Bad Weather

Soccer is played in almost all weather conditions. Because of our relatively short playing season and inability to make-up most games, we try to stay on schedule whenever possible. But safety is still priority one.

The problem is this: everyone has a different opinion as to what is a threatening weather condition. WVSL has established the guidelines below to follow during adverse weather conditions.

Referees and coaches are responsible for making this decision to suspend play. However, in any situation, parents should not hesitate to remove players from any weather condition they feel is unsafe or inappropriate. No one will be penalized for any safety-related actions taken.

Below are the league rules for playing under bad weather:

  1. Check the WVSL website for any announcement regarding field closures.
  2. Rain is not bad weather and is not grounds for the coach or the referee to stop the game unless the field becomes unplayable.
  3. If the rain makes the field unplayable, the referee or coach will stop the game. If he/she doesn’t, you should ask him/her.
  4. Make sure that referees, players, and everyone else gets off the field if there is lighting or thunder.
  5. In case of lighting or thunder, the referee or the coach will stop the game/practice. If he/she does not, you should ask him/her to do so. The referee will wait 30 minutes after last time thunder is heard or lightning is seen before resuming the game/practice.
  6. NO ONE SHOULD STAND UNDER TREES IN THE EVENT OF LIGHTNING AND THUNDER. SEEK SHELTER.
  7. If the delay will extend to the next scheduled game, the referee or coach will call the game. For example, thunder is heard with 10 minutes left in a game. The game should be stopped, and the game is complete
