Inclement Weather: Game Cancellation Protocol
Who, why, when...


Here's a quick rundown on when a game can be canceled due to bad weather without facing fines.

Coach's Decision: The authority to cancel a game lies with the coach, in consultation with the Division Director (LL or Rep) or the Vice President of the HMHA.

Weather Advisory Requirement: A formal weather advisory must be evident on the day of cancellation.

Timely Notification: Provide a minimum of three hours' notice to the opposing team for the cancellation of the game.

If a game is canceled, there are no guarantees of rescheduling. HMHA will review situations, and if needed, rescheduled games might happen on a weeknight at the opposing center.

If a game is not canceled, it can go on with just 8 players!

The safety of our players comes first and if you are not comfortable traveling - please make a decision based on what is best for you and your family, just keep your bench staff informed on your decision.
