ABSC uses City of Berkeley fields. They make the call each day at 2pm as to whether fields are open or closed. Even if the sun is shining, fields may be closed for being too wet. If it has rained in the past 24hrs generally, fields will be closed. 1000+ kids running around with cleats (followed by the adult soccer use at 7pm) on wets field will quickly ruin their use for weeks to come.

Thank you for your pateince and understanding.
