Inclement Weather Policy

Games will only be cancelled if HRM closes its fields. Cancellation information can be found here:



It will also be posted in the Halifax PLAYS Softball Facebook Group which can be found here: 

It is the responsibility of players & team captains to check this webpage before going to the field.

While we do our best to inform players & captains about field closures, cancellations can sometimes be sudden or unexpected, hence captains are ultimately responsible for checking and informing their players of field conditions and closures.

If a game is already in progress, we advise that captains cancel or end a game if field conditions could compromise the safety of players (e.g. after heavy rain or during lighting strikes). As long as there is a legitimate reason for a cancellation, no team will be charged with a forfeit. The safety of players is our top priority, and when dealing with dangerous conditions, it is better safe than sorry.


Please also note that Halifax PLAYS is not liable for injuries that result from a player choosing to play in bad conditions, & it bears no responsibility- financial or otherwise- for game cancellations due to inclement weather. We do our best to reschedule games, but this cannot always be guaranteed.
