Weather Cancelation Policies

Games may be canceled and rescheduled for a later date if weather is too severe or fields are unplayable. Below are cancelation policies based on the type of league:

 

General Rules

We play if at all possible. If we cancel, all roster players will be e-mailed with the cancelation and a banner will placed at the top of the MSSC website announcing the cancelation. If you do not hear anything by your game time, games are on for the night. We will contact all registered players when we know if games are canceled. E-mails and voicemails asking if games are canceled will not be responded to - you will know when we know.

 

Indoor Leagues

Indoor leagues are only canceled if the facility at which games are held closes. If Madison schools are closed for any reason in the winter, we cannot play at night. If leagues are held at a private facility, they will let us know if they are closing.

 

Outdoor Leagues

The city is very protective of its fields and has very conservative cancelation policies. We must follow their rules. Generally it is not MSSC's decision to cancel games. If the city cancels games, we usually know by 2:00 pm, and players will know shortly thereafter. If it is our decision, the cancelation will come later, as we want you to play and will wait until late afternoon to make the decision to cancel. Just because "it's not raining right now," it doesn't mean the fields have dried since it did rain. Water does not evaporate quickly from most fields, especially the kickball fields at Demetral.
