Rec/Summer/Clinics/Winter programs: Always when practices are cancelled during the day we will try to reschedule the cancelled session and it will be noticed on the day of cancellation. Travel: There is no make-up session.




It is raining, how do I know if practices still on?


Staff will always try to notify all groups as soon as possible if the practice is cancelled. Even with the rain, we will still try to run the practice. It only will be cancelled due to the Safety protocol (Lighting/Thunder) or field condition called by the county.
When the weather conditions are questionable, please keep an eye on the county app (Rainout Line), between the hours of 1:00 pm-3:00 pm when a judgment call is typically announced.
