WSLA Game Cancellation Policy
IF a game needs to be cancelled by either team, the team(s) involved must contact WSLA Executive Director, Erin Massena [email protected]. If either team is canceling within 24 hours of game start time, teams must call or text Erin directly at 425-870-7841. There are fines for games that are cancelled within 48 hours of the game start as WSLA is contractually obligated to pay WWLOA officials.
Once Erin have been notified, the following steps will be taken:
a. The WSLA Scheduler or ED shall modify the game on League Athletics and notify the WWLOA Assigner.  This will alert all contacts for each team of the cancellation via email.
b. The WWLOA Assigner shall modify the game in Arbiter and notify the officials assigned to the game.
c. If it is necessary for WSLA to cancel a game the day of, WSLA Scheduler or ED will notify the WWLOA Assigner via text and attempt to notify the officials assigned to the game. 
d. If the game is to be rescheduled, it is the responsibility of both teams to coordinate a new date/time/location and notify the WSLA Scheduler ,Allison Estes ( [email protected]), no later then 7 days prior to the rescheduled date so that the game can be added to the League Athletics and Arbiter websites and officials can be assigned.

Guidelines for Lightning Disturbances:

1. Assign staff to monitor local weather conditions before and during events.
2. Develop an evacuation plan, including identification of appropriate nearby shelters.
3. Develop criteria for suspension and resumption of play:
    a. When thunder is heard, or a cloud-to-ground lightning bolt is seen, the
        thunderstorm is close enough to strike your location with lightning. Suspend
        play and take shelter immediately.
    b. Thirty-minute rule. Once play has been suspended, wait at least 30 minutes
        after the last thunder is heard or flash of lightning is witnessed prior to
        resuming play.
    c. Any subsequent thunder or lightning after the beginning of the 30 minute count,
        reset the clock and another 30 minute count should begin.
