Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather, playing conditions shall be determined by the City of Plano.  Games may be postponed if weather conditions present a serious hazard to either players, coaches, officials or the conditions of the playing field. At game time or during play, the head referee/umpire on the field will make the decision. Any league or play-off game which has been postponed shall be played at a later time specified by PSA Staff.

 

a.      The fields in which PSA uses for its Fall and Spring seasons are owned by the City of Plano and decisions on whether the fields are playable is determined by the City at 3pm, Monday-Friday

 

b.      On Saturdays and Sundays, fields are checked by PSA Staff or league coordinators and every effort is made to update the PSA website 1 hour prior to start of games. Note: because weather conditions vary by location, PSA defers to coaches and parents to use their best judgement regarding safety and weather-related cancellations

Lightning

 

 

PSA has the following steps in place in case of lightning:

 

a.      PSA staff, officials, coaches, and parents are to use the My Lightning Tracker App (6-mile radius) – Here’s a video on how to download the app and set it up

 

b.      If lightning is visible during a game, the referees/umpires should clear everyone from the field and/or dugouts for 30 minutes.  If there is no more lightning, the game can resume.  If at any time lightning appears again, the 30-minute clock will begin again. 

 

PSA tries to reschedule games within 7-12 days from the date of cancellation
