Inclement Weather Policy

EGSA's Inclement Weather Policy


EGSA's top priority is always the safety of our players, coaches and their families.  Sometimes, the weather changes quickly over the course of a game or practice and it calls for the best judgement of our coaches.  In general, EGSA games and practices will proceed rain or shine.  The exceptions to this rule are torrential rain, thunderstorms, or other unsafe weather occurrences (very high wind, extreme cold or heat, hail, hurricanes, etc).  With regards to thunderstorms, at the first sight of lightening or the first sound of thunder, our coaches will instruct players to take shelter.  Coaches and players must then wait 30 minutes from the last occurrence of lightning or thunder until the game or practice may resume.  If conditions are determined to be unsafe for an indeterminate period of time, the coach may decide to dismiss the players for the remainder of the session.  In the event of cancellations of games or practices/clinics, EGSA will make its best effort to inform parents of the affected players as soon as possible.  This may be in the form of an email or through our RainedOut service.  For this reason, we ask that if you have a currently registered EGSA player, please sign up for RainedOut following one of the convenient methods outlined below.
 

Don't get left out in the rain!  Sign up for EGSA's RainOut Alerts to get instant notifications of field closures and cancellations or postponements of games, practices & clinics.
