Rain-Out Policy


1.  If heavy rains or other inclement weather take place during the day and render the diamonds not usable, Lions representative Bill Linwood will notify the Jordan Softball President.

1 a) In the event that the weather is uncertain, the President or aligned personnel, Umpire in Chief to verify park conditions will make a call on whether to cancel the early games by 5:30pm and the late games by 7:30pm.

Rain-Out Communication Notification

  • Initial notification will be first made via Twitter.

  • A mass email will be sent out from Jordan Minor Softball.

  • Notification will be be posted on the Jordan Minor Softball website.

2. Once a decision has been made to cancel, the President or assigned personnel notifies the Division Convenor, Umpire in Chief, and Foodbooth Coordinator. The umpire may also call a game in process if it puts the players at risk with localized thunder or lightening.

3.  The umpire in chief notifies all umpires of the change to the schedule.

4. The Foodbooth Coordinator notifies the Lions member (Glen Corfield cell:  905.321.2645) responsible for opening booth and those assigned to work.

Condition clarifications 

A) Light intermittent rain will not justify a game cancellation.

B) Where a light rain has been coming down all day, if we have not been notified by the Lions to cancel, we will assess diamond
condition before a decision is made.

C) Localized thunder and lightening will automatically cancel a game, regardless of diamond condition.
