Facility Rules & Regulations
In order to provide a safe environment for participants, spectators and visitors, and to protect the interests of our local businesses, the cities of Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Foley have established certain policies that are strictly enforced during all events at their facilities. Failure to abide by the rules could result in your removal from the facility.
The following policies are in place during all events:
- Personal coolers are not allowed (Coolers must be kept in vehicles). 2 Team Coolers are allowed in dugouts only. All team coolers will be marked with a tag that will be issued to the teams upon registration by the sponsoring group. Due to public health concerns, we no longer provide water coolers in the dugouts for teams.
- Golf carts, skateboards, scooters, bicycles are not allowed unless previous approval has been granted by the. Mobile devices for handicapped visitors are allowed. City staff will also assist those in need of transportation to and from the parking lot during tournaments and events upon request.
- Pop up tents are allowed, but they must be monitored and safely secured. As many of our utilities are underground, and for your safety, tent stakes may be no longer than eight inches. Any tents or other structures, such as sail banners, must request assistance from staff.
- Generators are not allowed on the facility due to public safety guidelines set out by the City Fire Department.
- No cooking of any kind or open flame devices, such as barbecue grills, heaters, etc. are allowed at the facility.
- Parking is very limited during tournaments. All visitors are to park in designated parking spaces only. Failure to do so could result in your vehicle being towed. It is highly recommended that owners of campers, RV’s, boats and utility trailers refrain from using the sportsplex parking facilities. Overnight parking and camping is prohibited.
- Hitting balls (with the exception of plastic whiffle balls) into any fences at the sportsplex is prohibited
- There are batting cages with indoor/outdoor carpet located at the sportsplex. In order to prevent damage to the cages, the use of steel cleats is prohibited.
- For teams that are warming up on the field, we ask that you move three to four feet from either side of the foul line, so that this area does not get worn out over the course of the tournament. This will help to eliminate ruts off of the foul line area and keep the field in a safe playing condition.
- The field crew staff is well versed in how and when to address field issues during a rain delay. The field crew knows the importance in restoring the fields to safe playing conditions in the quickest manner. It is appreciated that all coaches, parents and officials respect the decisions of the field crew and allow them to do their job. Their decisions are made based on maintaining the integrity of the fields for the entire tournament and not solely on the game that is in progress.
- The safest area during a rain/lightning storm is in your vehicle. It is recommended that all participants and spectators go to their vehicles and remain there until the storm passes.
- During a rain delay, all participants and coaches are to remain in dugouts and off the fields.
- Offensive language or behavior by anyone will not be tolerated at any Sportsplex and such abusers of this policy could result in ejection from the fields or removal from the facility.
