FIELD CLOSURE NOTIFICATION

Sign up for RAINEDOUT.NET and receive e-mail and/or text alerts when the fields have closed for weather! 

Coaches don’t always have time to call all of their players to notify them of field closures so this is a great way to get your information fast.  The South Bryan County Recreation department will determine whether or not fields are closed due to weather.  When they have made a decision, anyone signed up through RainedOut.net will receive notification.  Please note that in most cases, they will not make any decisions before 4:30 pm so please don’t call their offices for an update earlier than that.  We will also post on our HOME page (top right-hand corner) the field status on a daily basis.
