As the season starts, please check the schedules page on a regular basis.

What happens during rain/thunderstorms?

Kids love playing during the rain however thunderstorms can be very dangerous. It is the match official’s responsibility to call the game if they feel safety is an issue – this will be done at the field.  Games will only be cancelled if the township closes the fields and players will be notified.

Games cancelled due to a field closure (prior to the game start – i.e. this is not applicable when the game is called on the field) will be added to the end of the season (max 1 game)

Games cancelled by the match officials due to thunder will not be added to the end of the season.

Extreme weather announcements issued by Meteorological Services, Environment Canada (e.g. involving tornado watches and warnings) are increasing in frequency. Parents and adult care providers are advised to monitor these alerts and take appropriate action for the safety and well-being of their family. Travel to playing fields should be avoided until the alerts and warnings are lifted. Decisions about whether games will be played will depend on when alerts are lifted.

What happens during extreme heat conditions?

Games will carry on despite the heat. Players will be provided with additional water breaks and we recommend you bring extra water to the field for your player. It is always up to the individual family to decide whether or not to participate during hot weather.

Need a Refund?

No problem. We understand, things happen. After April 1st but before the season begins, there is a $35.00 admin fee when refunding players. As the season starts, if you need a refund we will calculate a pro-rated amount based on the date and number of games left. We will not refund you for the cost of the uniform, bag or ball (U4-U6) – those are yours to keep.

No refunds will be issued after the 2nd week.
