Check here regularly for news
regarding the status of games and practices. Information will be posted here
when a decision has been made regarding practices or games. Cancellations are
delayed as long as possible in order to try to get in as many practices and
games as possible. If you are still in doubt, call the AYSO Hotline at
238-3145, because sometimes decisions are made to cancel when we don't have
access to a computer. Soccer is an all-weather sport; normally, we do not
cancel games because of a drizzle. Games are canceled when moderate to heavy
rain and/or wet field conditions threatens the safety of players or risks
damaging the fields. Coaches and refs have the final judgment at the field
regardless of the information posted on the website and/or Hotline.
In the event of thunder and lightning while on the fields, players and fans
should immediately seek shelter in a car or building even if it is not yet
raining. Play may continue at the game official's discretion (referee in
U10 and up, Coaches in U5-U8) 10 minutes after the last thunder or lightning
if field conditions are safe. All games and practices delayed due to
weather must still end at the time the next teams are due to take the field.
Sometimes practices and games must be cancelled due to field conditions -
regardless of the current weather. Saturated fields can be badly damaged
by play. AYSO does not control when the town and/or schools close their
fields. It is very important to check the website or Hotline after periods
of extremely bad weather even if the weather currently fine.
