Are today's games rained out?  The Short answer is - CONTACT YOUR COACH. 

Rainout Policy:

1.       The initial decision to cancel games will not occur earlier than 90 minutes before the first scheduled game of the day (i.e. 4:30 p.m. for weekday games).  Although decisions will frequently be made 90 minutes before the scheduled game time, games can be cancelled at any time by Bossier Parks and Recreation (i.e. at a time close to the game’s start time, after it becomes clear that the field will not be ready despite the preparation being done on the field).

2.       The initial decision to cancel games may or may not cancel all games for the day.  For example:  a 6:00 p.m. game could be cancelled and the 8:00 p.m. game could still be played.  Also, a game on Field #6 may be cancelled, and a game on the Field #1 may be played.  Please be aware of what games have been cancelled and what games may still be played.

3.       On days that it rains, teams that are scheduled to play must send at least two workers, as early as possible, and prior to any team activities, to help get the fields ready for play.  Anyone else who is available should come to the fields as early as possible to help get the fields ready for play.

4.       In deciding whether to cancel a game, the following factors will be considered:

a.       The amount of rain and the current condition of the field

b.       The weather forecast (i.e. is additional rain expected)

c.       The likelihood of getting the field ready by the game start time

d.       The amount of help available to get the field ready

5.       As soon as practicable, cancellations and updates will be made available via Bossier Little League’s Communication:  BLL’s website, BLL’s Facebook page, and or voice mail at league office or text messaging. 

a.       League representatives will first alert league commissioners, who then can communicate directly with coaches in their age divisions.

b.       Parent’s concerned about rainouts should always contact their coaches first. If coaches do not know, league officials do not know. (So messaging us on facebook, leaving voicemails etc is pointless.)

c.       BLL will, after communicating with commissioners, post rain outs on facebook and possibly the website or on our league phone voice message if we have an opportunity.
