WEEKEND CANCELLATION POLICY/PROTOCOL

INCLEMENT WEATHER PROTOCOL (WEEKEND GAMES):

(1) Cancellation notice will be emailed directly to Team Pods/Coaches/Team Managers (NOT families)

  • Coaches COPY & PASTE (do not forward) and email their families directly

(2) Cancellation notice will be posted on our Home page as an Article

  • Visit www.playvaba.org and find current articles posted on homepage
  • Notice will also be posted on our League Schedule page (schedule will also be updated)

(3) Cancellation notice will be posted on our Facebook page.

Cancellation notices will be communicated/updated AS SOON AS VABA IS INFORMED BY THE COUNTY/CITY ADMINISTRATORS.  If there are no updates, then games are on as scheduled.  If games are cancelled on a Saturday and/or Sunday, games could be on for the other day, so stay posted.  

Please make sure to check and double-check - and encourage your team/families to always check the website right before they leave for their game (if they haven't heard of any changes).

PLEASE NOTE: IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE UP CANCELED GAMES - SO THERE WILL NOT BE ANY MAKE-UP GAMES.

WEEKDAY CANCELLATION POLICY

If ever applicable, and as a matter of policy...

REMINDER: Anytime school is canceled (or has an early dismissal) due to inclement weather, during the week (i.e. on a weekday) there are no VABA practices.  Unless otherwise notified, in these cases, your practices will be canceled (no make-ups).  Please be mindful of this next week, depending on the weather and pending decisions from local schools.

Please check the websites for your school/school system (for weekday practices next week) - if school is open, then practice is on...if school is closed, then practice is canceled.  No email or notification will go out - teams/coaches will have to check their respective websites regarding school closings, etc. for practices next week.  Any changes/updates to this policy, specific to your team's practice arrangements, would only be communicated directly from a VABA representative.
