Inclement Weather Policy
Please note that football is an all-weather sport. In season, games will be not be canceled or called due to rain. The official referee is the only person that is allowed to call a game due to weather, not a coach or parent. This means that regardless of the weather conditions all players must report to the field on a game day. As a result, we must practice in the rain to prepare for playing in the rain. We will take precautions for the safety of the participants. All participants should have appropriate apparel to protect them during inclement weather. If there is heavy rain before practice begins the meeting place will be the hallway of the community center 135 Einstein Loop Rm 52 Lower Level Bronx, New York.
