We always ask coaches, parent volunteer, kids to prepare their own fields for play prior to the game once OPBA has given the "OKAY to PLAY (SAFELY)" on your teams diamond. In wet conditions it can take up to 1.5hrs to prepare the field for play and in dry conditions up to an 1hr- plan your arrival accordingly in an effort to provide your teams the best playing surface possible for game time.
