How Do I Know If My Child's Game Is Canceled????
Published: Tuesday, April 16, 2013
With a new website in place I would like to let you all know how the new system will work.
As I know a field is canceled I will go into my program and cancel the game. When that is done, the managers playing on that field for the night will receive an email stating their game has been canceled. If you are the manager and have the capabilities to email or text your team at that point please do so. This process does not update the Location Closures box to the left on this page.
Once I know the status of all SPAA fields for the day, I will update the "Location Closures" box on the left side of this main page. You should always check the date and time updated. If it doesn't have today's date then it hasn't been updated. It will be updated by 4:00 PM on weeknights, 7:30 AM on Saturdays and 11:30 AM on Sundays. I will update the SPAA rain out number also (636-279-7722). If it states "Delayed" that means there will be another update for that field by the times specified above.
If you are a AA team and play some of your games in LSL you will need to contact the LSL rain out number (636-639-5384) or check the Lake Saint Louis website . The information on the SPAA site for the LSL fields will not necessarily be accurate. I am going to leave LSL fields marked as "open" all the time beginning today. You will also not get an email that the games are canceled if you are playing on a LSL field.
I ask you to please not call the SPAA office to find out if a game is playing. Set up a phone chain with your team or carry your manager's phone numbers to find out this information if you will not have internet access during the day.
If you are a manager and have additional days you have found out that you cannot field 8 players, I need to know this before your game is canceled not after. Please remember the more conflict dates you have the better the chance for you to be pushed to the end of July for your make up games.
Thanks and lets all think "DRY" thoughts! Deanne
