The primary concern of MLC is the safety of our players, coaches, referees and families.
MLC will always cancel practices and games in the event of lightning, or in response to warnings issued
by the National Weather Service. Cancellations for other adverse weather or field conditions will be at the discretion of MLC team coaches and Maplewood Township.
In the event of thunder or lighting, fields must be closed for a minimum of 30 minutes after the last occurrence before play can resume. Players will be directed to wait in vehicles or in a suitable shelter as available.
Coaches, referees, and/or local officials have the authority to delay or cancel play at any time that conditions
may be deemed unsafe.
If a practice or game in progress must be cancelled due to weather, a coach will remain at the field until
all players have been picked up. If weather advisories are in effect prior to commencing a practice or game,
please be prepared to pick up your player early, or arrange for his transportation home.
Our season begins in March when the weather can be very cold, and ends in June when the weather can be
very hot. Ensure that your player is dressed appropriately. A personal water bottle is mandatory for all practices and games. Sunscreen is advised. Note that light rain will not typically prompt a cancellation.
Please download the free LeagueAthletics Mobile app to ensure timely receipt of cancellation notifications on your mobile devices. Additionally, you may also be notified of cancellations via email or phone call.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and flexibility with respect to any schedule changes that may be required due to inclement weather.
