When the KYSL Board of Directors and/or the KYSL President (the president will make every effort to consult with board members when
reasonable or possible before making the decision) decide prior to a game that games and practices will be cancelled due to inclement or dangerous weather conditions, coaches will be notified as soon as possible. Notices will also be posted on the official website and Facebook page.
Immediately prior to a game, the coaches and referee are responsible for canceling games or shortening the length of a game due to inclement weather. The coaches of the teams that are playing each other, with the referee will make the decision together. It's the responsibility of the coach to notify their Division Coordinator if they cancel a game. During the game the referee has the ultimate decision as to cancel a game due to unsafe weather conditions. Games that are cancelled will not be re-scheduled unless both coaches agree on an afternoon during the week to play the make up games.
🚸🚌 In the event the school district (KGBSD) cancels school or closes school due to weather, all KYSL games and practices will be cancelled⚠️
☔️⛈⚽️⚠️ PRACTICE/GAME CANCELLATIONS: for updated practice/game information contact your coach
Safety First! Dress for the weather. Long sleeve athletic shirts and tight athletic pants can be worn under uniform. Gloves & hats/headband are acceptable.
