General Wet Weather Information

SSFA

Wet weather occasionally forces training and games to be cancelled. In the event of wet weather, here is what to do

Training

During the week, Sutherland Shire Council determines if fields are playable. If the grounds are closed, under no circumstances is training to go ahead, as Council can impose fines.

  • You can call the Sutherland Shire Council Wet Weather Line 9710 0105 to find out if fields are open/closed – NOTE: Council may leave grounds open, but BRFC may close our grounds (due to the state of our field).
  • Check www.bardenridgebacks.com.au for updates 
  • Check with your team manager and/or coach

Game days

The SSFA determines if games are played. The Council Wet Weather Line doesn’t apply on the weekends. In the event of wet weather:

For early games, the decision may not come before you need to leave for the game. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable, due to the grounds not being inspected by the SSFA until 7am.

Also note that just because some games are called off, others may go ahead e.g. morning games could be off, while afternoon games are on. Even if Saturday games are off, it doesn’t mean Sunday games are too. Please be vigilant and check with your team manager if you are part of a Sunday team.
