Foul Weather Policy
Section 3, Area T
It is our policy that the Regional Commissioner or the Field Director will make the decision to cancel games and/or practices for any given day, due to weather and/or field conditions, for certain or all age groups.
That decision is made on the Regional level, not area wide!
Even if the games or practices are officially NOT cancelled, individual coaches (preferably after conferring with the opposing coach) have the right and obligation to make the decision to cancel if the weather is bad, after which the players should be contacted through whatever phone-tree has been set up. The safety of the kids should be the guiding thread, not the comfort of the spectators.
For games played out of town, coaches must contact the opposing coach to find out if the game will be cancelled, and if so, advise the players.
"If you can see it - flee it; if you can hear it - clear it" is the safety slogan of the National Lightning Safety Institute" (NLSI).
