Occasional Reservations

Single Weekend/Weekday or Weeknight Reservations (Walk-Up Reservations)

When Can Fields First Be Reserved? Reservations are taken on a first come first serve basis during regular business hours on Monday through Saturday. New occasional reservations become available each Tuesday. Starting that Tuesday you will be able to reserve athletics fields until the following third Friday. For example, if you want to reserve a field on Saturday the 15th day of a month, you could reserve the field starting on Tuesday the 4th of that month.

What Can You Reserve? Any individual may reserve up to 4 hours in any calendar month. Weekday reservations (Mon-Thurs evenings) may not exceed 1 hour, on Fri, Sat, Sun reservations may not to exceed two hours. The goal of this provision is to ensure that walk-up reservations are used only by occasional users and not leagues or programs (which should be applied for months in advance). In addition, weekday reservations may only be booked starting at 6:30 pm and are booked by the half pitch.

What Can You Not Reserve? Reservation requests for schools, clinics, programs, special events and back-to-back games to be used to run a league or tournament do not qualify as walk-up reservations. These requests must be made through Advance Field Reservations in the appropriate season.

What does it Cost? Cost for residents is $35 per hour, nonresidents or for profit activities are $90 per hour. In addition there is an $14 per hour fee per field for use of lights. In order to be eligible for resident fees, you will need to come to our office one time with proof of identification (driver’s license, passport) and proof of residency (it must be a utility bill). Once you are in our system, you will not need to come in and can book over the telephone. If you have not booked a reservation in over a year from your last rental date you will be asked to come back to our office to re-verify your residency.

How Can Reservations Be Made? Single reservations may be made on a walk in or call in basis.

  • Walk-in Reservations: Walk-in Reservations can be made Monday through Friday at that time you will be able to choose your field and pay for your permit.
  • Phone Reservations: Phone Reservations can be made Monday through Friday 72 hours in advance of rental. You must pay for your reservation at that time by visa or master card only.
