Changes may be made on HOTLINE(S) during the day, so you need to continue to monitor both HOTLINE(S), especially during times of inclement weather.
Both Anderson Park District and the Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council, Inc. have established telephone call in numbers (FIELD STATUS HOTLINES) to report on field status, schedules changes and other information. Each different HOTLINE provides different information. In addition to weather related issues, information is reported on the Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE that may not be connected to weather.
The Anderson Park District HOTLINE reports on the field status of the fields that they control. These are the fields at Clearcreek, Riverside, Juilfs, Veterans, Firehouse, Kellogg and Beechacres. This HOTLINE number will report if the fields are open or closed for games and practice use, or they may give a preliminary report on expected field status.
The first report from the Anderson Park District HOTLINE is at 7:30 am with a possible update on Saturday at 11:00 am and on Sunday at 12:00 pm. Based on changing weather conditions, updates may be put on the HOTLINE earlier/later in the day based on revised weather or field conditions. For example, if rain develops the HOTLINE may close the field at 2:45 pm. Therefore, you need to continue to monitor the HOTLINE(S) during inclement weather.
The Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE reports on field status of all fields (open or closed), but can cancel or move games from fields that are closed for weather or other reasons. The Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE takes priority over Anderson Park District HOTLINE for cancellation of games. For example, games can be canceled on the Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE when the Anderson Park District HOTLINE still reports the field as open. Also, our Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE can also re-schedule and move games to other fields that may be open. The timing on the Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Council HOTLINE follows the basic timing as the Anderson Park District HOTLINE.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL BOTH HOTLINE NUMBERS PRIOR TO GAMES OR PRACTICES. NO ONE WILL CONTACT YOU, YOU MUST CONTACT THE HOTLINE NUMBER FOR STATUS OF GAME OR PRACTICE FIELDS.
Once games are canceled referees will receive the same information on the HOTLINES and will not to show up for the game. Therefore, if the game is canceled or a field is closed on the HOTLINE you are not responsible to notify the referees or pay their fee. Remember you have to listen to both HOTLINES.
The HOTLINE numbers are for the use of Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Referee Coordinators, Referee Assigners, Referees Parents, and Club Officials. We encourage you to give these numbers to your parents for their use.
Understand that sometimes changes may be made to a schedule for reasons other than weather. For that reason it is important for you to check both HOTLINES even on days that the weather is fine.
