Field Maintenance

The Edmonton Sport & Social Club is committed to providing the very best sporting experience in Alberta and taking care of our community. In order to accomplish this for our players, it’s crucial that that we keep our fields in tip-top shape throughout the outdoor season. This is where our Field Maintenance Program comes into play. Mowed grass, raked shale and vivid lines are some of what we do to help keep our local fields safe and fun for players.

How it Works

The City of Edmonton takes the lead on field maintenance for public sports fields in the city, and part of our rental fees are designated to pay for their expenses. Fields are on a 14-day rotation, and the City is only responsible for mowing the grass and managing the weeds. With 650+ teams in our Slo-Pitch, Kickball, Outdoor Soccer, Ultimate, and Flag Football leagues, we know that this is not enough to uphold the high standards we have set for our leagues and the player experience!

We maintain over 90 fields each outdoor season, and we would love to tend to every single field every single day if we could. Instead, we are on a rotational schedule and each day we prioritize the fields that need attention the most. Priorities are based on our own scouting reports as well as the field ratings that Team Captains and Event Coordinators leave for us in their score submissions.
