Introduction

Criteria for cancellations

The Lakeland District Soccer Association Winter Weather Policy is intended to keep our players, coaches, volunteers, referees and families safe during the cold winter months.  It is up to the Lakeland District Soccer Association (LDSA) Executive Director through consultation with the LDSA President and local Community Presidents to apply these criteria and rule on decisions regarding cancellations and rescheduling.  The following guidelines will be used in the determination to cancel or reschedule games.

Cancellation or Rescheduling of games will be considered…

– If the temperature, by a wind chill, is -40C with a static temperature lower than -25C or,
