Weather & Field Status Update
All Fields Currently CLOSED
Thanks to all for a wonderful season. Please read our season ending recaps for baseball and softball.
All fields are now CLOSED as we begin our transition to fall sports (the only field availability will be for the Stan Jones scheduled softball camp the week of July 6). Additionally, access to the park is being closed off in order for heavy construction related to our parking and front entrance projects. Access is available along certain marked paths for those parking along the road. We expect the park to re-open around August 3 and fields to re-open in time for the fall sport season. No outside instructors or camps are allowed on site during this construction period.
Thank You Team Sponsors!
Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan
Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan for NYO's Fields at Chastain Park.
* All play or practice is suspended
* All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately!
Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. No place is absolutely safe from a lightning threat, however some places are safer than others. Stay away from:
* Keep off of fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Avoid Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* Keep away all metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Avoid all water and water fountains.
Safety is the number one consideration - common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.
Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child.
Do not return until the all clear is sounded – 3 quick 5 second horn blasts.
NOTE – For offsite NYO games or practices, umpires and coaches should follow the same safety guidelines if they hear thunder or see lightning. Play or practice shall not be resumed until there has been a minimum all clear period of 15 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.
