Lightning Safety Policy *

Rain during the Weekday

If rain occurs on a weekday when 6 PM games are scheduled, a decision to cancel will be completed by 4 PM on that day. If a decision is made to cancel games (or practices) before 4pm, it will be posted on the In House page. If rain occurs after 4 PM, it will be a game time decision.

Rain on Friday Night into Saturday Morning

If rain occurs on Friday night that would prevent us from playing Saturday morning, a decision will be made at 7:30 am on Saturday morning. Games will be canceled and rescheduled. It is possible that morning games could be canceled and afternoon games will be played, this will be based on field conditions and if we feel we can get them ready to play for afternoon games.

Rain on Saturday or During Games

If rain occurs on a Saturday during games or during games in the week, the Umpire on Field #1 will decide if it is safe for us to play. All games on other fields must follow the lead of this game. Games can be postponed for no more than 1 hour; otherwise it will be rescheduled and will resume where the game was postponed. Keep a good book!

Lightning Safety Policy *

A. If lightning is seen in the area, all players, spectators, coaches and referees must take immediate shelter. In most cases this will be a vehicle.

B. If no further lightning activity is observed after 30 minutes, practice or play may resume.

C. Each time lightning is observed, there shall be a 30 minute waiting period of no lightning activity before play can resume.
