Cancellation Procedures

Practice Cancellations

·    The coach or team designate is responsible for deciding on if/when to cancel a practice.

·    Please notify families at least 1 hour in advance to allow parents adequate time to make schedule adjustments.

·    If it is raining, the coach is responsible for assessing field conditions to ensure player safety. Please check Field Status in advance to determine if the designated field is open.

·    If there is lightening, coaches are required to cancel the practice and move the players to a place of safety.

Game Cancellations

·    Coaches or a team designate are reponsible for assessing field conditions in advance of a game. Please check Field Status to determine if the field is open. If the field is excessively soft or wet please do not proceed with the game.

·    Please notify families at least 1 hour in advance if a game has been cancelled to allow parents adequate time to make schedule adjustments.

·    Managers of AAA teams and above MUST check the Umpire Calendar and notify the assigned Umpire at least 2 hours in advance if the teams have decided to cancel a game. (Note that if the Managers do not cancel a game due to weather, the Umpire at his or her sole discretion may still elect to cancel the game upon arrival due to field conditions).

·    Failure to notify the assigned Umpire can jeopardize Umpire resources. Please copy the UIC, Umpire, and VP of Baseball when communicating a game cancellation.

·    If a game is cancelled, it is up to the Managers to reschedule the game (preferably during an existing practice time); likewise it is up to the Managers to add the rescheduled game to the Umpire Calendar by contacting the UIC with advance notice.

·    Reminder that players must play a minimum of 10 official games in order to be eligible for All-Stars. If you reschedule game and there is no Umpire to officiate the game, the game will not qualify as being official for All-Stars eligibility.
