Rainout Procedures

 

Last update: 5/2/2016

Here is how rain-outs are handled.

If it is raining before 4:00 pm on a game day, the City of Dover makes the decision and will post a message on their rain hotline (736-7155). Please keep in mind, it might be raining where you are and not in Dover OR it might not be raining where you are and it is in Dover. Never assume a game is canceled – call hotline. Sometimes games may need to be canceled due to wet fields from rain earlier in the week.

If it does not start raining until after 4pm, the umpires will make the decision at the field. If you are an early game you will need to show up to the field to make sure. If you are a late game you can check with the coaches from the early games to see if they are playing.

Make-up games will be scheduled in the order rained out. Teams will receive one weeks notice. Updates will be posted to the City of Dover website and the KCCSL webpage as quickly as reasonable.

KCCSL and the City of Dover have partnered with “RainedOut” to provide a TXT message notification of cancellations.
