RAIN/WEATHER POLICY

  1. If a game has the possibility of being cancelled due to forecasted weather conditions, the Home Team must alert all parties (opponent, referee, SCRFU, etc.) in their Monday Protocol announcement that the game may be relocated or rescheduled. This will allow the Visiting Team a chance to secure an alternative field so the game can be played as scheduled. All teams are encouraged to secure alternative locations for all matches (home and away) to ensure matches are played as scheduled whenever possible.
  2. If an alternative field can be secured, by either the Home Team or Visiting Team, the match should be relocated and played as scheduled.
  3. If the game must be cancelled due to forecasted weather conditions, the Home Team shall use its best efforts to notify all parties (opponent, referees, SCRFU)  as soon as possible after the cancellation is determined
  1. The Home Team must notify local teams (within a 100-mile radius) no later than 48 hours prior to originally scheduled kickoff if a game is being cancelled.
  2. The Home Team must notify longer distance teams (outside of 100-mile radius) no later than 72 hours prior to originally scheduled kickoff if a game is being cancelled.
  3. If the cancellation notice is given later than required, the game may be an On-Field Forfeit by the Home Team and the Visiting Team awarded a 28-0 Win.
  1. Upon cancellation, the Visiting Team has the right to relocate the match to the alternative location if possible. Relocating a match to the Visiting Team location (or neutral location) does not “swap” locations for other matches scheduled in the current (or upcoming) seasons.
  2. If neither team is unable to, or chooses not to, secure an alternative field in response to the cancellation, the procedure for rescheduling shall be determined by the League Make-Up Date Policy.
