PVBL Weather Cancellation Policy

All weather cancellation decisions shall be made by a single person designated by PVBL ("Weather Coordinator").  The current Weather Coordinator is Steve Cole.  The policy is summarized as follows:

Weather Cancellations shall be the sole website used to make cancellation decisions.  If the forecast on Accuweather predicts a 55% or more chance of rain during game time, the game shall be cancelled.  If, on Friday night at 8:00 p.m., the forecast for Saturday morning predicts a 75% or more chance of rain during game time, the game shall be cancelled on Friday night.

In the event of any ambiguity or uncertainty as to the forecast (i.e.: the forecast keeps changing from hour to hour) or field condition, all cancellation decisions shall be made at the sole discretion of the Weather Coordinator.

Weather Cancellation Announcements

If a game is cancelled pursuant to the above paragraph, the Weather Coordinator shall post a cancellation notice on the front page of the website.  This will be the only notification given (individual texts, emails, or calls will not be made or sent by the Weather Coordinator).

Scheduled Rain-Out Dates

There will be four (4) rain-out makeup dates built into the PVBL schedule.  When a game is cancelled, the game shall be rescheduled to the first available makeup date.


All decisions to temporarily halt or cancel a game due to lightning shall be made at the discretion of the umpires.
