The last day of Fall season will be the last Thursday of October unless YOUR COACH extends practices.
Weather Policy and Locations
Here is the policy which is subject to change:
The decision will be taken around midday and will be based on the projected temperature at 5pm.
If CUSA feel that the temperature is inappropriate to train then they will communicate the to the club by around 12pm the day of.
The club will, when appropriate, consider other weather conditions such as sleet, snow, high winds and rain and, when appropriate, override the temperature cut off for older teams.
There will be times when an older team needs to practice for an important event, such as a college showcase, and may have their team practice when the temperature is a touch lower than the low temperature point.
There may also be times when the Age Group DOCs of the younger age groups feel it is appropriate to cancel training for the comfort of their younger players based on additional weather and these coaches will directly contact the teams.
The club simply wants the players training as much as possible to ensure their continued development over the Winter period and has to juggle and balance this with their on-field comfort.
This is not a science, so not everyone will be happy, but we feel this is the best track to continue on.
We try to make the call as early as possible to allow parents and players to plan their evening.
If, in the intervening time period, there are minor changes in weather, then this does not necessarily mean that practice will be cancelled last minute.
If significant weather changes happen, then parents will be notified as soon as the decision has been made.
Parents will be made aware before coaches, so please refrain from contacting the coach for information on this matter.
The decision of whether or not to travel to and from training is down to the family and no responsibility or liability can be taken by CUSA when driving or moving around parking lots in less than idea conditions.
