When a game is cancelled due to inclement weather or a facility conflict, teams will be notified:
Will be sent via email and text message (must opt in for text services)
If it is close to your start time, the official at the venue will contact the on-call Staff Member to give an update on current weather/field conditions. In the event of lightning, games will be halted for 30 minutes. Games maybe delayed or postponed until later in the evening or once the storm passes. Players will be given a directive by the onsite official, to go where they feel safest. Games may resume once the storm passes.
Leagues may be canceled due to weather conditions, dangerous or unplayable field conditions, facility constraints, etc. Texas Sports staff makes every effort to play all scheduled games, thus we will not cancel games until absolutely necessary. Therefore, if you are calling/emailing concerning a decision on a cancellation, remember we will not have an answer until close to the start of the league, at the latest 30 minutes prior to your scheduled game in question.
All cancellations will be posted to two (2) outlets: Via opt in text message & to the email that is linked to your player dashboard. Texas Sports Waco will NOT notify players via phone of this cancellation. It is the captain's responsibility to inform all teammates of any cancellations. If inclement weather develops during league play, Texas Sports staff will attempt to contact those remaining teams scheduled to play that day/night. Depending on the time of cancellation, some teams will have to be notified on site.
When games are canceled, follow the schedule posted on your player dashboard. The games that were canceled may be made up during the season if time allows. Texas Sports reserves the right to run a shortened season without a refund. Texas Sports also reserves the right to schedule games on days and locations other than your regularly scheduled league day/night/venue if necessary.
*Texas Sports & Social Club reserves the right to reschedule any game for a day other than your normal day of play due to facility constraints. *Weather supersede forfeits.
Cancellation during a game:
If the game is stopped due to weather and the game was in the first half, the game must be re-played. If it was in the 2nd half, then the score at that time of when the game is stopped will count as the final score.
*If a game is re-played, the game will start with the score that was totaled at the time when the game was called. As well, the game length will be the amount of time that was remaining in the original game*.
If rescheduling is not possible because of lack of facility availability before the season end then the affected games will simply be removed from the schedule/standings.
