Concussion Procedure and Protocol

How do you find out if games are cancelled?

Please do not call the PCSL office on rainy, overcast or cold days to inquire about cancellation of league games. We do not cancel merely because it's raining.

Games are played except when the following conditions exist:

  • Any signs of lightning
  • An issued Severe Thunderstorm Warning
  • An issued Tornado Watch or Warning
  • Severe Cold Temperature
  • Any other severe weather condition the PCSL Board of Directors considers would endanger our players or volunteers.

Announcements of league cancellations will be announced on the PCSL's website, Twitter account, Facebook page, through email (if timing permits) and WJBC radio (1230 AM) & website, by 7:30am on game days.

Often times, a severe storm will roll in mid-way through the day. For Game time cancellation decisions, as soon as possible, the website, Twitter & Facebook will be updated, league emails will be sent (if timing permits) and WJBC notified.  We rely on coaches to help spread the word to their team parents.
