GOLDEN RULE: If you there is no update to the website or your email, please assume that games are still on!
Any rain delays or cancellations will be updated on the website and app before 4pm on weekdays and 9am on weekends. Please note that if we need to make changes after these time frames for instances out of our control, we will update you as fast as possible.
Rainouts/game cancellations are a necessary bummer but we definitely want to play just as much as you do! Rescheduling, acquiring new permits, and blowing up your inbox is not our idea of fun! We'll make every effort to proceed with games; however, it is our responsibility to our players, to make decisions based on safety, park preservation and overall player experience. Some locations however, such as the Piedmont Park Conservancy, make their own calls for rainouts/severe weather, which are out of our control.
We try our best to avoid it, but sometimes we have to make a "game time decision." We'll proceed as normal, for as long as we can but other times that means that we have to stop and cancel a game if the conditions become severe. In either scenario, if you're at the field and don't have the opportunity to complete a game, head on over to one of our league sponsor bars and enjoy some bonding time with your team!
Game Reschedule Policy - (Due to weather/field restrictions)
Games that are rained out will be rescheduled for a later date in the season. We understand that it becomes increasingly difficult to field a team when seasons are extended due to excessive (2 or more) rain delays. This may result in the scheduling of double headers (two games in one day) to make up for rained out games.
Atlanta Sport and Social Club does everything within our power the reschedule (not cancel) your games which results in leagues pushing beyond the original end date. If a league start is moved 2 weeks, the "originally scheduled playoff date" will also move 2 weeks.
For any canceled games (non-rescheduled games), players have the option to request:
- a single game reimbursement for each canceled game (reimbursement amount varies based on league)
- a single game credit, which can be applied to a future league, for each canceled game.
In the event of excessive (2 or more) rainouts, Atlanta Sport and Social Club reserves the right to:
- Play games at a different location than originally scheduled
- Play on a different day and/or at a different time than originally scheduled.
- Shorten the number of games played in the season
