We understand the uncertainty that is created when it’s wet and you’re not sure if the grounds are open or closed.
We endeavour to communicate closures as early as possible through our website and FaceBook and if possible, via text to each Coach.
For weekend games the Club will decide as early as possible. A field inspection is generally undertaken on Friday and if it is decided that pitches are not fit to use, the club notifies FFNC who will inform all of the away clubs, referees etc.
If there is substantial rain on Friday night then another inspection is will be done at 7.00am on Saturday morning and a decision made by 7:30am.
We will put a message our FaceBook Page if the fields are closed. We will try to text the coach of each team but this isn’t always possible.
It is the responsibility of our coaches and parents to check the FaceBook page and to then notify the rest of the team.
It is the responsibility of the away club to notify the nominated member of Bangalow SC of ground closures as soon as known. If this is on a Friday prior to 12pm then it is posted on the FFNC website and we will endeavour to put a message on FaceBook and try to text the coach of each team. It is the responsibility of coaches to check for updates and notify their team.
A message is posted on FaceBook if the fields are closed, generally no later than 3pm.
Please obey these decisions to avoid insurance implications and to keep our fields in the best possible condition.
