Weather Policy

Softball is an outdoor activity that may sometimes take place in less than comfortable weather conditions (temperatures, precipitation, etc). The safety of our players, coaches, and umpires is our most important function as a softball league.


If you see lightning or hear thunder, regardless of proximity to the field, all practices are to be paused and coaches, players, and spectators should move to the safety of their vehicles. Don't not seek shelter in breezeways or other open structures. All teams must wait 30 minutes from the last visible lightning or heard thunder before returning to the field. This is not an optional policy. Coaches found to be in violation of this policy will be held responsible.

If precipitation begins before or during a practice, the head coach is responsible to determine that fields are safe for play as long as there is no lightning or thunder per the rule above.

Practices will be canceled if the heat index is 104 or above. 


If lightning or thunder is detected, the head umpire will stop the game and ALL participants MUST clear the fields immediately and seek shelter in their automobile. There will be a 30 minute waiting period after lightning is detected before play can resume.

In the event of heavy rainfall prior to the start of a game, county officials will make a decision and notify all coaches. In the event heavy rainfall begins after the games begin, the head umpire will make the decision about game delays or cancellations.

Practices will be canceled if the heat index is 104 or above.
