Practice Permits

Fall 2017 Practice Permit Assignments

The list of practice permit assignments and remaining available permits is now posted. PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CLICKING ON THE ASSIGNMENT LIST LINK.

Thank you to all of our coaches and managers for your patience as we went through the arduous task of processing the hundreds of requests that were submitted since the list of available permits was posted. This season was one of the most difficult in memory due to the loss of several fields in the central part of the county where renovations were being made by the county.

Despite that, our fantastic permit processor volunteers spent many dozens of hours working on the assignments and were finally able to satisfy initial permit requests for virtually all teams. Unfortunately, in some instances, there were second permit requests that could not be fulfilled. We received an extraordinarily high number of requests for permits in the central part of the county and there were some fields where there was just not enough room to satisfy all requests.If your team did not receive a second permit, please review the remaining unassigned fields at the bottom of the assignment list and contact Bonnie Sachs at to make an alternate request.

If you have questions about your permit, have not yet been issued a permit for a field by MSI or you have only been assigned one permit and would like to request a second permit that is still available on the list, please contact Bonnie at the above email address.

Most practice permits become effective the week September 5-8 run through the week of October 30-November 3. Exceptions for start dates and other dates that are not available during the fall season are noted on the listing of permits. It is important that all MSI teams abide by these restrictions so that we do not jeopardize the use of these fields for current and future MSI teams.

Please note that the county has a weather hotline information number (301.579.5610) and a website ( which MUST be checked in the event of inclement weather or wet fields on a given day. It is your team’s responsibility to check to determine if the field has been closed. Please check the weather hotline number or Parks website for the status of PRACTICE FIELDS ONLY. As in the past, the MSI website will be the final determinant of the status of games.
