Rain delays & rainouts... what happens?
Weekday games are allowed a 30-45 minute window for rain delays.
Weekend games: It will be a game-by-game decision by league officials. There is a good chance that an early game could be cancelled but not the later game, and vice-versa.

The league will make every attempt to reschedule rainouts. The makeup game will be rescheduled 6-7 days after the rainout, unless both coaches agree on an earlier date. If coaches don't agree on a makeup date given by the league, it will be a forfeit. Make-up dates: Weekday game at 4:45 or 5:00pm or October 15th or 16th.
