Weather & Team Cancellation Policy
If safety becomes a concern due to weather, or any other reason, Border Wars Lacrosse will make the needed changes to ensure the situation is handled properly. Our ultimate goal will be to keep everyone safe and play as much lacrosse as possible.
In addition, should teams decide to decline participation in Border Wars, cancellation and administration fees may apply.
Depending on the delay scenario, we may adopt any of the following contingencies:
Scheduled games may be moved back the total time of the delay, thus delaying all remaining games said delay time.
Scheduled games during the delay may be rescheduled to later in the day or the next day to keep intact the integrity of the original remaining schedule.
Scheduled games during the delay may be canceled and lost, to keep intact the integrity of the original remaining schedule.
Remaining scheduled games may be shortened anytime during the tournament.
If inclement weather ensues, teams and spectators will be notified with a long, continuous horn. The horn signals that all participants and spectators need to leave the field immediately and go directly to their vehicles for shelter. Once the weather has passed, and a 30-minute window of clear weather has been reached, a long, continuous horn will sound again to resume the tournament. Notification will also be sent via Tourney Machine.
Teams and players should make every attempt to remain on premise during a weather stoppage, keeping safety in mind. If a team is unable to be found when the tournament resumes play, they will forfeit their games. There will be no refunds for lost games that result from the weather.
