Weather delays 101: what you need to know
If your complex is closed the league will notify us, we will then close the field for the game in the game scheduling system and the refs on the game will get an email notification. We also use a text message system from RainedOut that will send a text message if you are signed up to receive them. You would need text the word DASOA to the number 84483 and then you will start receiving the text messages. If your game has not been postponed/cancelled/or field closed then you need to report to your game 30 minutes prior. You need to be listening for thunder and scanning for lightening. If either is seen or heard you must start the 30 minute delay and restart that 30 minutes every time you see lightening or hear thunder. It is up to the referee to call the game on site. Please look at your rules variation spreadsheet for your games league to follow the correct procedure for inclement weather.
