Region 85 (Lake Forest, Foothill Ranch, Portola Hills)

Field Closure Information


On inclement weather days, Region 85 will communicate (based on mudline information provided by the City of Lake Forest and the Saddleback Valley Unified School District) whether fields are open or closed. (current field status) Updates are typically received by 8am on weekends and 2pm on weekdays. Player safety and protecting the fields from damage are our main concerns.

If a field is originally listed as open and weather or field conditions deteriorate, the referee will decide if the match will continue or be played. Additionally, once a field is closed, it is closed for the remainder of the day. (regardless if weather conditions or field conditions improve) Region 85 Board Members, Coaches, Referees or Parents do not have the authority to open or re-open a closed field.

Reminder, games and practices are always canceled whenever lightning is in the area. Always use your best judgment when playing or practicing.

All Region 85 Area play teams should check the Area 11-L website for field conditions - as field conditions may differ between locations/fields.

*** No person shall use an athletic field which is posted as being closed. (whether the closure is for excess rainfall, field maintenance or other reason)

  • Referees should check each goal as part of their safety inspection of the field prior to each match.
  • If used for practice, the coach should ensure the goal is properly anchored.
  • Ensure Bownet goals are fully extended and in the locked position prior to use.
  • No climbing or hanging on goals.
