Inclement Weather Policy
We will send out an email communication and Remind text if we know in advance we plan to cancel practice. We send a Remind text for last minute cancellations.
In reality, Coach Matthew is at Wills Park every practice day, regardless of weather, to make a last minute decision, so we don't normally send an email. Since 2011, we have cancelled practice in advance, via email, only 11 times (4 times in 2021 ... yikes).
Oftentimes rain is scattered and it is difficult to determine with certainty if it will affect practice.
Parents can always use their own best judgement if they want to try to bring their athletes to practice or not. Practice is not mandatory.
We will not run if lightning is witnessed or the last thunderclap is heard within 10 miles of our location.
We may run if it is raining (it depends on intensity and temperature.)
We may run if there is smoke from forest fires in the area (depends on intensity.)
We may run if it is a bad air quality day (depends on intensity.)
We run if it is cold. Dress in layers. Wear gloves Bring clothes to "stand around in" for before and after the run.
