CFBBA board members do not determine the playability of the fields.  Those decisions are made by the cities of Carrollton and Farmers Branch respectively. 

Field closure updates will generate game cancellation notifications to anyone in  that is associated with system notifications provided they haven’t opted out of communication. 

Please do not use the rainout app to know if your games are cancelled.  CFBBA will try to relocate your game to a different field if possible.  If your game is cancelled due to weather or field conditions, CFBBA will alert you:

 Monday-Friday Between 3:00-4:30 PM
 Saturday By 8:00 AM
 Sunday By 10:00 AM

Sometimes the cities will alert CFBBA in the morning (M-F) that the fields will be closed all day or all weekend.  If that is the case, we will cancel games accordingly.  


When games go on a weather delay, everyone should immediately stop current activities, remove themselves from the fields and seek appropriate shelter.  Do not abandon your game.  The umpires, the scheduler and the 2 field marshals will be in constant contact with each other and make the best decision for everyone.  If your game is cancelled, you will receive a notification from the umpire verbally AND a notification from Sports Engine.   If your team decides to abandon the game, we will enter a forfeit on your game. 


Please know player safety is our first concern.  We will always make the decision with the players in mind.  CFBBA will generally make a cancellation decision after the initial weather delay (30 mins) expires.


Lightning is a severe hazard that must be taken seriously. The City of Carrollton has installed Perry Weather Outdoor Warning Systems at McInnish Sports Complex, R.E. Good Soccer Complex, Josey Ranch Sports Complex, W.J. Thomas Park, Oak Hills Park, Rosemeade Aquatics Complex and Oak Creek Tennis Center.

Perry Weather Systems will give one 15-second blast when lightning strikes within 10 miles of each location. Upon hearing the blast, everyone should immediately stop current activities, remove themselves from the fields and seek appropriate shelter. After the initial 15-second blast, a yellow strobe light on top of the system will begin flashing. This light will remain flashing until safe conditions return.

After the area is clear for 30 minutes from the last strike, the system will provide an all clear by giving three 5-second blasts. Regular activities may resume at this time.

No one is allowed to return to the field until the all-clear is given by the Perry Weather System. 

Any association or group that does not follow these procedures, is subject to loss of field privileges. 

Everyone should immediately seek shelter any time lightning is believed to be a threat, even if a signal has not been sounded.

Carrollton Fields



If lightning occurs on a weeknight (defined as school nights, Sunday – Thursday) during a game, we will wait to see if lightning clears for the first 30 minutes.  If after 30 minutes, we get the all clear, games will resume. 

Further to that, if the warning sounds during warm-ups, before the first games of the evening have started, we will wait for a second 30 minutes.  This is for lightning that occurs without rain.  If there is rain, with or without lightning, canceling or delaying the game is at the umpire’s discretion, based on the potential of field playability, once the rain stops.  

If lightning or rain occurs on a weekend, game cancellations will be handled on a case by case basis.  Please be ready to play your game, unless you get an update from us that your game has been cancelled.
