Fort Hunt is fortunate to use synthetic turf fields. Here's are some reminders to safeguard use:
Snow on field turf: Do not use turf if there is snow on any portion of it. Do not attempt to remove snow from turf. Breaking these rules will jeopardize our field permits.
Lighting: To turn on lighting, these conditions have to exist:
Fairfax County centrally programs the local light controller located outside north-east corner of field. The program is sometimes set to start at dusk. However, it could be incorrectly programmed during transition to a new field permit or DST or if county closes field.
Depress On / Off button on local light controller. If you hear a click when depressing button, then the lights will come up slowly. If you don’t hear a click, then central programming in step one may not have happened or the county closed field.
Lights turn off automatically about 15 min after permit ends (generally 9:15pm during spring season).
