Inclement Weather Policy
U11-U19: Players playing in the Tri-County league in the U10 age group and over are expected to play in the rain. Due to the very short and intense outdoor soccer season, it is VERY difficult to reschedule rained out games. In the case of lightning, the game should be postponed until the danger passes. The sole reason for a game to be postponed is field closures by the community or if a game is postponed by the REFEREE; coaches cannot independently cancel games due to weather. If the referee makes a decision to postpone the game, the coaches must notify Tri-County of the postponement and they must provide Tri-County with a rescheduled date within 7 days of the original game date. All make up games must be completed two weeks before the end of league play. In the event that the fields in your community have been closed, it is the responsibility of the home team to notify the visiting team. The visiting coach MUST be informed by 4:00 p.m. on game day and at least four hours ahead of game time for weekend games.
U5-U9: Weather cancellations are at the coach’s discretion. The coach should discuss his weather policy at the start of the season and advise his player’s parents regarding any weather decisions. In cases of extreme muddiness whereby WHPS makes the decision to close their fields, all coaches will be contacted by the Field Scheduler.
If any parent is not comfortable with the decision to play in the weather, they have the right to pull their child without any fear of reprisal.
