Generally speaking, the protocol for rain is -
IMPORTANT: Do not assume that a game later in the day is cancelled just because a morning game may be ... CHECK the FIELD STATUS before your game. If a pitch can stay open or be re-opened, it will be. And per our Rainout Policy, "if a team fails to show up for a game that has not been canceled, [the team] shall be awarded a loss and be required to pay the forfeit penalty of $100."

MINNIE & LOVIE WARD
POLO FIELDS, GOLDEN GATE PARK
BEACH CHALET SOCCER COMPLEX
MARSHALL FIELD PENALTY BOX
This field has only a goal box drawn. There is a football line across the field another 5 or 6 yards out - that is the edge of the penalty area. However, it is only as wide as the goal box is wide - there is an imaginary line extending from the goal box outwards. Show this to the refs if necessary; but remember, the referee is the ultimate authority on the field.
