Rainout Policy - Outdoor Events

  • We play in the rain, however, we do not play in heavy rain or lightning.
  • Since weather is often unpredictable, please check the weather update widget above AND our Twitter feed before leaving for your match.
  • Keep in mind we won't make a decision on cancellation until 5:30 PM (or ONE hour before the first scheduled match of the evening) to make sure we make the best call possible.  We will not make a decision to cancel any sooner unless it is absolutely clear that the weather will be unplayable.


Below is our policy concerning inclement weather situations (snow/ice).  We cannot base our judgment off a forecast, so we wait to make decisions until we actually SEE the weather in action.  Please refer to the policy when making personal decisions for you and/or your family.

1. Families/Individuals should make their own decisions regarding league/practice based on the driving conditions in their area, and who will be driving. If you feel the driving conditions are unsafe for the individual/team driving to league/practice, please notify your coach or league director,

2. In the rare case we decide to cancel league/practice/clinic/tournament, we will communicate cancellations as follows:

a) Cancellation notice will be posted on the Stratman Sports' homepage through our X/Twitter Feed & Venue Status Feeds.
b) A mass e-mail notification will be sent to respective team/parent reps.

Decisions are made roughly 45 minutes prior to the first scheduled league match of the day.  Examples below...

4:15 PM for junior league matches that start at 5:00 PM or later!
5:25 PM for league matches that start at 6:10 PM or later!
