INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY


A few notes about field closures and inclement weather:

  1. If you are unsure about whether the field your game is scheduled at is open or closed, please contact your FIELD COORDINATOR.
  2. If a field becomes closed, Field Coordinators, DOCS, or Club Admins must contact our office as soon as possible. If you are notified about a field closure outside of our normal business hours, please send Amy a text at (937) 243-3684.


Policies pertaining to weather as written in our bylaws:
