Weather Updates & Policies

Inclement Weather Policy

Below is our policy concerning inclement weather situations.  We cannot base our judgment off a forecast, so we wait to make decisions until we actually SEE the weather in action.  Please refer to the policy when making personal decisions for you and/or your family.

1.  Families should make their own decisions regarding practice based on the driving conditions in their area, and who will be driving. If you feel the driving conditions are unsafe for the individual driving to practice, please notify your head coach immediately.

2.  In the rare case HPSTL decides to cancel club activities, HPSTL will communicate cancellations as follows:

a. Cancellation notice will be posted on the HP website, as well as the HP Facebook and Twitter page.

b. A Director will notify the Head Coaches of the cancellation.

c. Head Coaches will send notification to their respective team (including their assistants).

Reminder:  Twitter & Facebook Feeds will only be updated if conditions change. As always if you feel it is unsafe to travel, please use your own judgment.

Rain Out Policies - Outdoor Events

  • We play in the rain, however, we do not play in heavy rain or lightning.
  • Since weather is often unpredictable, please check the weather update widget above AND our Twitter feed before leaving for your activity.
  • Keep in mind we won't make a decision on cancellation until ONE hour before the first scheduled activity of the day) to make sure we make the best call possible.  We will not make a decision to cancel any sooner unless it is absolutely clear that the weather will be unplayable.

  • Drink plenty of water.
