About Weather Cancellations

RAINOUT HOTLINE: (914) 407-4595

The hotline is updated by 8:30 am Saturdays and 9:30 am Sundays in the event of an all-day cancellation due to inclement weather or field conditions. Generally, if there is an "old" message from a few weeks ago on the hotline, it means that the morning conditions did not cause a full day of cancellations. The hotline is not updated if there are weekday cancellations.

On weekdays, travel team coaches notify their teams of advance practice cancellations if the weather merits this.

If unsafe weather conditions occur while soccer activities are happening, individual coaches, trainers, coordinators, or referees can cancel activities from the field.

Here's what you need to know:

On Saturday or Sunday, dedicated volunteers check the fields at 7:00 am following recent rain to ensure safe conditions.  The field-checkers communicate, decisions are made, and dedicated volunteers update the rainout hotline, send an email blast to all registered parents, and update the field directory in the event of field closures.

Please appreciate their efforts -- they are setting their alarms on Saturday and Sunday mornings -- and if you are an early riser, consider volunteering to help out with this task. Email [email protected] to enlist.

If rain or thunderstorms occur later in the day, all coaches know the safety procedures and are empowered to make a decision based on the weather and field conditions to cancel. We place safety above all; if a coach cancels, abide / follow instructions.

Please understand that on inclement weather days, for every parent or player wishing for soccer to be cancelled, there are three others hoping for the opposite.

If the fields are safe and in playable condition, and the weather is just "unpleasant" we will hold soccer activities. As parents, use your judgement about your players. If your children want to play, dress them accordingly. If your children will be uncomfortable or upset, there is no compunction to attend. Soccer should be fun!
