Rain out Policy
Games and Practices will be held, as long as conditions are safe and do not violate our rules or park guidelines. As a standard, we will do our best to alert the entire club via email, texts, and field status with as much notice as possible on Practice Nights and Game Days should practices or games be cancelled. However please keep in mind that certain Park closures and practice/game cancellations are determined by the City as well as the Badger Creek Complex Manager and they have the liberty to cancel depending on current field conditions or impending weather.
In the event games are cancelled games will be made up during the season as time and field space allow. It is up to the home team coach to get with the opposing coach to find a date that works for both teams. If no dates work for the opposing coach then it will be a forfeit against the opposing coach/team
There are no refunds or credits for cancellations due to weather
