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.
