Inclement Weather Policy

While light rain will generally not stop the Metro League or the Slowpitch Leagues from going ahead we do need to be mindful of the ground conditions if heavy rain has fallen during the course of the week.

For our Metro League Competition the Competition Manager will check the conditions of the diamonds on the morning of play and make a judgement call as to whether the competition will go ahead.

In the case of our summer Corporate Slowpitch Competition the grounds and the weather will be accessed after 4:30pm and a decision on the evenings play will be made then.

During the summer competition the Melbourne Softball Association recognises that there is a risk of injury, illness and in extreme cases, possible death, in participating in softball activities during extremely hot weather conditions.

Accordingly, the Association has adopted policy and procedures regarding hot weather conditions that can be found in our Inclement Weather Policy.
