Braefoot #2

Usually over the course of a season, the field will develop dirt and sandy patches in the goal end 1/3 of each side of the pitch.  Center 1/3 grass is usually in reasonable shape throughout the season.  On a heavy rain, water will pool first on the east end of the field.  When that happens, the field is considered closed.

To reduce field wear and tear, please do not practice in the goal mouths or high traffic areas.
