How is Field Status Determined?

If games are moved or canceled due to field closure, you will receive a notification by email (or text if you set your account up for text messages). You can configure your notification settings by signing in, then click on "Edit My Account". 

Each weekday, the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA)  determines playability of all Fairfax County Park fields (based on FCPA personnel in-person observations) and posts athletic field status by 3PM. If FCPA closes a field, nobody should use that field and if it has lights, they will not work when park is posted as closed.

FCPA does not post field status for Fairfax County Public Schools fields. FCPA does not post status of the field at St Veronica.

Sometimes, as full adopters of Chantilly Park, we are allowed to open Chantilly Park when FCPA would normally close it. In the past year, this has been much more difficult to accomplish.

If/where/when we can, we will try to check conditions at school fields and StV. We can’t always get out or get someone else to go check a field. On a sunny day, we’re likely to assume the field is in good shape and we’ll post it as open. On a more questionable day, or the day after a field was closed, if nobody has reported to us, we will post the field as “TBD” – so that after 3:15 PM it is up to the managers of the teams scheduled to practice or play. This is also referred to as “Manager Decision” or “Game Time Decision”.

We try to update our status by 3PM. It’s safest to wait until about 3:15 to check field status. We're at work during the day, just like you, and aren't always able to check on the fields. One of the best things about the our website is that the field status page is quick and easy to update. The bad thing is we can’t add any text to the page to explain anything and there’s no date/time stamp to know when it was last updated. When possible, we’ll update Facebook and post a message on the front page of the website.

Field status may change after 3:15 PM  if we get updated reports of field conditions or weather comes in later..

Everyone needs to follow the general guidelines below for determining field status…

Please keep in mind that just because it’s raining where you work or live, does not mean a field will be closed.

Open - Green = field is open and available for use

Closed - Red = field is closed an nobody should use any part of it

TBD - Orange = Before 3:15 PM - field status has not been updated, after 3:15 PM (or on a weekend) it is up to the manager to determine field status.

Even when fields are "OPEN" it is everyone's responsibility to assess the condition upon arrival. If the field is not playable, don't step on it.

If standing water or foot prints, stay off...

You must be able to rake/drag field and actually do so after use. If it’s too wet, you just cannot rake or drag.

Managers – re: “Manager Decision” status, use the guidelines below to determine playability. Use common sense please.

Field Status Checklist...

All managers are encouraged to assess field conditions upon arrival at any open field.                      

You should not play on a baseball field if any of the following conditions exist:

·   There is standing water on any portion of the field.

·   The sound of a footstep (squish-squish) can be heard while walking on the field.

·   While standing on the field, water can be observed gathering around the sole of the foot.

·   While walking (not running) across a grass portion of the field, a footprint is left in the soil (not just the grass bending over).

·   While walking (not running) on any dirt portion of the field, an impression ½” or deeper is made in the soil.

DO NOT rake mud or sweep puddles into the grass.

DO NOT dig trenches to remove standing water.

DO NOT use Turface or any quick-dry material unless you have received authorization to do so.

WWAST Kids Camp

The Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team will be holding a Kids Camp at George Mason this June,  June 12-17, 2017.

Recognizing the positive impact Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team™ (WWAST) players have on children with amputations or missing limbs, we created a softball camp for such children where WWAST players serve as the coaches and mentors. Twenty terrific kids attended our inaugural Kids Camp in Orlando, FL in June of 2013. Kids Camp is an annual WWAST event as we continue our mission to educate and inspire these children who face many of the same challenges as our WWAST players. We believe it is a win for the kids, and a win for the WWAST players who have already served their country, and who continue to serve in this important way.

To qualify to attend Kids Camp, children must be between 8 – 12 years old, with an amputation or missing limb, and be physically capable of participating in our daily softball clinics. We give priority to children who otherwise qualify and are from military families. Regardless of the location of Kids Camp, children from all over the country are eligible to attend. WWAST will pay all expenses for the child and a parent, including travel, meals and lodging.

After last year’s camp, they discovered many of the kids participating did not have their own gloves or forgot them. If anyone has old “Little League” age gloves in their garage that they can contribute, we'll be collecting them at the Snack Shack at Chantilly Park.

For further information on Kids Camp, or if you would like to receive an application for your child to attend, please contact Jolanda Janczewski at jolanda@thewwast.org.

Update to the Implementation of Little League Age Determination

Update to the Implementation of Little League Baseball® Age Determination Date https://t.co/AieFXmhgLg

 

Little League Baseball® to Begin Utilization of August 31 Age Determination Date for the 2018 Season; Children Born Between May 1 and August 31, 2005 to be Grandfathered as 12-Year-Olds For 2018 Season

CCL

Over the past couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about the Little League Baseball® Age Determination Date. This is an important topic to everyone involved in Little League, and Little League has sought input from volunteers, parents, and coaches that has helped guide District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors to ultimately change the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball and the Little League Challenger Division® to August 31.

Update:
At the fall 2015 meeting of the Little League International Board of Directors, it was approved to grandfather the four months of children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005, for the 2018 season, so that no child will lose their 12-year-old season of Little League Baseball.

Why the change? In 2011, Little League conducted very detailed participation research. As a result of that research, we learned that parents, players, and volunteers wanted to see Little League become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Since the research concluded, Little League revamped its Tee Ball program, established a Coach Pitch Program, and changed its residency requirements to allow children to play in the league where their school is located. Adjusting the Age Determination Date will help us achieve the goal of making Little League younger. And, making the date August 31, the same that many schools in many states use for student registration, allows Little Leaguers to play with their classmates.

This change will make the Little League Baseball Division, also known as the Major Division, truly a 12 and under program – ensuring that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division. The same will be true with the upper age limit at all teenage divisions of Little League Baseball.

What’s the difference? In 2014, Little League District Administrators initially voted to move the age determination date from April 30 to December 31, effective with the 2018 season. That was amended by District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors in August 2015, moving the date from December 31 to August 31. Effective November 2015, the implementation plan has been amended, grandfathering the four-months of children born between May 1 and August 31, 2005 as 12-year-olds for the 2018 season.

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.

“Having a meaningful Little League experience is an important milestone for millions of children around the world,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “As we continue to work with our volunteers and the International Board of Directors, we believe this solution allows us to accomplish our goal of making the Little League Baseball Division truly a 12 and under program, while ensuring that all children get the opportunity to fully enjoy their 12-year-old year in Little League.”
