Weekday Practice and Friday Night Games Cancellation Procedure

 

  • We will always try to make a decision on weekday practices by 1 PM, based on current field and weather conditions.
  • Our website should be used as the main source of cancellations.
  • If our website cannot be updated, an email will be sent.
  • If we are successful in updating our website, we will also try to send an email.
  • Our Weather Hotline is the last resource for cancellations, because it has limitations on how many calls it can handle, and also, because the person trying to update during high call traffic might not be able to get through.
  • If weather and field conditions change after 1 PM, we will do our best to react and update everyone via website, email, and hotline. 
  • If weather conditions change before or after practice starts and Parish Athletics has not canceled, coaches will have to make a decision and inform their teams.
  • We only update the website as needed.

 

Weekend Games Cancellation Procedure

 

  • We will always try to make a decision on weekend games by 7 AM, based on field and current weather conditions.
  • We also will check fields on Friday nights to make sure they are playable, if not, the website will be updated, emails will be sent and the hotline updated.
