Sports fields and diamonds are classified by size and level of service. Class A and B fields and diamonds are bookable and larger in size, regularly maintained and most appropriate for developmental sport and tournament. Classes C and D fields and diamonds can be used without booking or charge as these sites receive less regular maintenance, are smaller in size and possibly located within a retention pond.
What type of sports use outdoor facilities?
- Fields - Soccer, football, field lacrosse, rugby, cricket, quidditch, and ultimate frisbee
