Environment Canada Calgary Weather Forecast

Everyone loves to play in fair weather, but you should expect games to be on in all types of weather. The exceptions: thunder storms, blizzards and other such extreme conditions.

All teams should arrive at the field expecting to play

1) If the ref says go, games are on.If the ref say no, then the game will be rescheduled.

2) If the ref says go, and both teams are not interested in playing, then they can request to the ref that a 0-0 draw be recorded, provided both teams have enough players to field a team.  These games will not be rescheduled!

3) If the ref says go and only one team is interested in playing, then the other team who is not willing to play will be in default and a 6-0 loss will be recorded.

The referee and League executive will not be held liable for any injuries sustained during a game, since it is the personal decision of each player whether or not to play.
