- Unless stated above, all games and practices are on as scheduled and any cancellations will be made at the field by the coaches with Player Safety being the primary factor.
- If the fields are closed then games and practices are cancelled. We are not permitted on the fields if they are closed by the town.

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) 20 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.
