What Type of Weather Conditions Will Cause Game Cancellations?

Games will be played in almost all weather conditions. Lightning is one weather condition that will force the suspension or cancellation of games. If the fields become unsafe due to an excessive accumulation of water, games may also be canceled. On rare occasions in the past, games have been canceled due to accumulations of snow. Game cancellations will be posted on the "News Announcements" page of the website. Coaches are told to check the website and then contact individual players. The decision to cancel games is usually not made until early in the morning of the day of the game, and not the night before. This is due to the fact that our fields drain water extremely well and are usually playable except under the most extreme conditions.
