On inclement weather days, Region 85 will communicate here whether the fields are open or closed based on mudline information provided to us by the SVUSD and the City of Lake Forest by 8am on weekends and by 2pm on weekdays. The main concern is for player safety. Protecting the fields from damage is also a major consideration. Always use your best judgment when playing or practicing when conditions are poor.
Even if the region decides to play games, a specific site may be unplayable. That call is ultimately made by the referee.
Games and practices are always canceled whenever lightning is in the area.
AYSO Plus and U16/U19 should check the Area website for field conditions. Field status may be different in different cities. Lake Forest may decide to play while Irvine or Mission Viejo does not.
On game days, the information will be posted by 8:00 am. There will be multiple ways to get the news.
- The Area 11L website. Click on Mudline - where all field conditions are posted. This is also linked from the Fields page of the Region 85 website.
- The Region 85 website - ayso85.org. At the top of the Home page, there will be a very obvious message with field status.
Thanks for your help to preserve our fields and our permits with the school district and City!
