Inclement weather and field conditions

The FCKLL website will make every effort to keep field status current, but as our volunteers are often addressing field issues in the hopes of kid's playing, there may be some delay. Please check with your coaches regarding inclement weather or previous-day rain if you have questions on field status.

FCKLL has volunteer opportunities for Field Captains to help monitor and address field conditions.

FCKLL uses Fairfax County Park Authority ball fields.

Parking at Jefferson Village Park

Manage Traffic at Jefferson Village Park Field
Many parents park across the service road from the field at Jefferson Village Park. Unfortunately, this service road is next to Route 50, and cars often use it as an illegal high-speed detour around traffic—especially during rush hour, when many FCKLL practices and games occur. 
 
A car once struck a player on this road, resulting in a non-fatal accident; we want to make sure no other accidents occur. 

Before games or practices at Jefferson Park Village, instruct parents to park on Jefferson Avenue so they don’t have to cross the service road. Some parents may still try crossing the service road, so get to the field early and put out the orange traffic marker cones near the storage shed to alert cars to slow down.

Monitoring Field Conditions

Manage Fields

Prior to practices or games, inspect the field you will be using. If the field is so wet that using it will risk injury to players or damage to the field, move to grassy sections (if they are playable) or cancel the practice or game.


Environmental Factors 

Stop play if:
  • It gets too dark
  • You see lightning or hear thunder.
  • If you can see lightning at all, clear the field immediately.
  • Do not return to the field until you have not seen any lightning for 30 minutes.
Use smart phone apps to help you determine how far off lightning strikes may be, but always err on the side of caution. Remember that umpires have the final word on stopping or resuming a game due to lightning. Because lower levels typically have no umpire, managers and coaches must be responsible for the safety of player.
