Weather/Field Conditions Policy

2018 Game / Practice Cancellation Policy

2018 Game / Practice Cancellation Policy:

Field Conditions:

Suburban Athletics will make a game/practice day field evaluation by 2pm. If a cancellation is required league-wide, it will be posted immediately on our website homepage, emailed to commissioners and coaches, and posted on Facebook.

If at any time a coach determines the field or conditions are unsafe for players (even if the league has given the go-ahead to play), they have a responsibility to contact the opposing team coach and if in agreement*, cancel and notify their teams.

Weather:

If severe weather or heat-related safety issues are a concern, Suburban Athletics will make a league-wide cancellation which will be posted immediately on our website homepage, emailed to commissioners and coaches and posted on Facebook.

At any time, you must suspend play if lightning occurs, you are not allowed to play within a 1/2 hour if lightning has been witnessed. No exceptions will be tolerated.

Minor weather (rain)  - Cancellation of practice due to weather is up to the discretion of the coach.

If at any time a coach determines the field or conditions are unsafe for players (even if the league has given the go-ahead to play), they have a responsibility to contact the opposing team coach and if in agreement*, cancel and notify their teams.

SAFETY is our #1 concern, FIELDS are our #2 concern and we don't want to sacrifice either to try to get a practice in.  Reworking a field that has been used during wet conditions is difficult to fix, coaches will be responsible for this.

*If an agreement can not be reached, contact the commissioner
