Inclement Weather Guidelines

The following procedures will be implemented in the event of threatening weather conditions:

  • Rain:

With no lightning: Play may continue until conditions cause excessive wear to the grass fields.

  • Electrical Storms or Hail:

When a lightning storm is imminent, 3 long air horn bursts will be sounded to signal to all participants and spectators to evacuate the Park for at least 30 minutes. Once told to evacuate visitors will have three minutes to get out of the park. Failure to evacuate in this time frame will lead to a cancellation of his or her rental which will be non-refundable.

At this time all participants and spectators should return to vehicles. Tents or pavilions in the Park are not suitable for shelter. Failure to get out of the park and into a vehicle or the surrounding building will lead to a cancellation of the customer's rental and it will not be refunded. Future rentals will also be compromised, cancelled, and not refunded.

The fields will remain closed until a PublixVSTC staff member receives an all-clear message When it is safe for participants and spectators to return to the Park 1 short air horn blast will be sounded.

At this time field inspections will occur to determine if grass fields are in a suitable condition for play.
