Weather Cancellations:

Will be emailed and/or texted out division wide or by your players coach, via the TeamSnap app.  Please note - we have GREAT fields, and they drain very well.  If it has rained earlier in the day, but has cleared by practice time - we will most likely still hold practice!  If there is severe weather in the area, we will cancel practice early - so please stay near our complex when weather is a potential issue.
