Inclement Weather Policy - Reminder
Submitted By Nathan Joyes on Thursday, July 8, 2021
Playing outside, we are bound to encounter all sorts of types of weather, we need to be prepared in-case adjustments need to be made to our programs.


Inclement weather: is weather that is harsh, wet and cold. Often this type of weather is accompanied by high winds. Keeping in mind that we are all playing relatively locally, the call to cancel games for the day will be made up to ½ hour before game time. However, it is important to watch our website and social media feeds for updates if inclement weather has been forecasted (i.e. severe thunderstorms).

Thunderstorms: in the event that games are played in the rain, and lighting is sighted:
  • If games are in their first half, players will return to their cars for a 30 minute break, games will resume in the second half if no lightning is sighted during their 30 minute break.
  • If lightning is sighted again, the 30 minute break restarts.
  • If the game is delayed for more than 40 minutes, the game is called, and the score at that point in time stands.
  • If games are in the second half, the game is called, and the score at that point in time stands.
