INCLEMENT WEATHER

There are only 2 times games or practices may be cancelled due to weather.  Lightning or a closure of the park by the township.  If the township thinks the fields could be damaged due to rain, they will notify us and we will update the website to show that the fields are closed.  

We will not play or practice in lightning.  Homecoming park is equipped with a lightning strike detector.  In the event the alarm goes off, all players, coaches, officials and spectators must seek shelter in their vehicles or under the shelter house until the "all clear" alarm sounds.  This will be 30 minutes after the last detected lightning strike.  In the event of a prolonged lightning delay (or anticipated delay), the games may be postponed or cancelled at the discretion of the board.
