Weather Cancellation Protocol

  1. The Metro Soccer League, its officials, field marshalls and its referees hold the right to cancel any games due to weather or other unforeseeable factors. Coaches do not have the authority to cancel a game for any reason. Games will be made up if at all possible, however this cannot be guaranteed, especially late in the season.

  2. Cancellations due to weather will be communicated as soon as possible to all association reps and coaches who will then be responsible for communicating to their players. In the event of a cancellation, an email will be sent out to reps and coaches and a notice posted to the Metro League website. All efforts will be made to provide as much notice as possible; however it is recommended that parents check the website immediately before departure for the field if weather is questionable.

  3. The League may cancel games for the following: thunder and lightning (as per FIFA laws), snow, freezing rain and torrential rain. Depending on the circumstances, a Field Marshall may feel it necessary to cancel for extreme fog. Field conditions in relation to player safety (not comfort) should be the first factor assessed when determining if a game should go ahead or not.

  4. This means that games may go ahead in the cold and rain as long as the field is safe to play on (ex. On a turf field). Unsafe field conditions include standing water, mud and loose ground.
