TRAINING – WET WEATHER PROCEDURE FOR WEEKDAYS/TRAINING
Sutherland Shire Council operates a wet weather line recorded message for information on ground closures. From Monday to Friday inclusive, all grounds are under direct control of the council.

During wet weather if Sutherland Shire Council CLOSES the grounds, we will post this asap at the top of our website page.
NO TRAINING IS PERMITTED.
Council officers may fine offending clubs up to $2000 - if any team is training on the ground when it is closed. MMFC will not wear these costs and they will need to be paid by the offending team/s.
During weekdays MMFC will sometimes make a decision to close our grounds, due to our own fields individual circumstances.
This information will be posted to the website and the fields and club house will also be closed, sometimes there will be a note on the club house doors. Please check the website prior to turning up for training if there has been rain.
Look for alternative training options and venues.
Some examples are indoor centers such as CBC Sports or Sports World or 5 Sports.
Miranda Park, the hills are great for fitness training and there is a flat area behind the pre-school off the Boulevarde. Sylvania Athletics Track for sprint and fitness training.
On weekends, grounds come under the control of the SSFA.
WEEKEND GAMES - WET WEATHER PROCEDURE FOR GAME DAYS
AFTER HEAVY RAIN ON FRIDAY, FRIDAY NIGHT OR DURING THE WEEKEND, GROUND INSPECTORS INSPECT THE HOME GROUNDS BY 6:30AM AND NOTIFY THE SSFA TO ADVISE THE CONDITION OF THE FIELDS.
The SSFA will make a decision to play or not to play on any or all fields, dependent on which club fields are open.
The SSFA will then SMS all wet weather officers and advise them of their decision, usually before 7:15am.
