 WEATHER: rain or shine?
    YES - we play rain or shine!
    Except in the case of dangerous conditions 
    (lightning, hurricane, extreme flooding etc...)

     You may call the WEATHER HOTLINE at 212 696 7297

    IF games are cancelled an outgoing message will have information. 
    If there is NO CURRENT message then games are on as scheduled.

    The best time to check the hotline is 1 hour before your game as weather and conditions
    are extremely changeable and games are not cancelled until it is extremely apparent that 
    fields will be unplayable at kickoff time.

    Games go forward whenever possible. 

Please don’t write in the afternoon asking if games are cancelled.

We will let you know as soon as we know and never make decisions early in the day unless 
the fields are already clearly flooded and unplayable.  
In which case we’ll post a notice on the hotline and also send an email if we’re able. 

We understand the urge to write when your players are asking you the same question, but
our answer will be "we don’t know yet" and taking the time to reply thus to several captains delays
the mountain of work and emails we need to get through 
in order to keep the league running as smoothly as possible for you.  (thanks for understanding) 

On occasion games may be cancelled on the spot if we arrive at the fields and
find they are unplayable due to flooding or dangerous conditions.

If there is no current message regarding weather on the hotline
then games will proceed as scheduled.   

If there is a cancellation message on the hotline for a past date, then all games are on as scheduled. 

    Make up games may be scheduled at a different time
    and/or day of the week than your regular league play, including weekends.
