|MMRFL Weekend Forecast for 10/03/15
|Weather forecast for Saturday 10/03/15 calls for Low's in the upper 40's with a High in the mid 50's with cloudy and windy skies ---- but no rain in theory.
Rain without lightning does not postpone games by MHSAA rules. BUT Thunder or Lightning will. In addition we are sometimes asked by School Administration to not use the field to avoid tearing it up. So Parents / Families / Friends ==> Please check back to this site to check the status of the youth games before departing for your game. We will post any cancellations / postponements and delays of games as we identify them. We will also post the rescheduled times and locations of games as those decisions are confirmed as well.
Keep in mind -- like the High Schools we typically will reschedule cancelled / postponed games for the next day (SUNDAY) som plan accordingly.
|NO tailgating allowed at Swartz Creek Schools
|Fans going to Swartz Creek this weekend. Please be aware that the Swartz Creek School do not allow Tailgate Party activities in their parking lots. This is a school administration decision, not the youth program's call, and must be enforced.
|ONLY Water on sidelines at Fenton Fields
|Parenst and Coaches -- Be aware t hat the High School Administration has deterlmind that ONLY Water is allowed along sideliens at Fenton Fields .
No Energy or Sports drinks, Pop / Soda, Kool Aids or any drinks other than WATER are allowed on the track or sidellines of the Field . Players or cheerleaders for teams going to Fenton should only bring water for their drink while on the sidelines at the games.
|NO PETS ALLOWED at MMRFL Game Sites
Please note that schools in the State of Michigan do not permit pets in Sports Stadiums. The MMRFL and it's Subsidiaries are required to abide by this guideline under our Field Use Agreements.
NO PETS, other then working animals, will be allowed at MMRFL Game sites or practice fileds using school property
LEAVE YOUR DOGS, CATS, and/or other pets at HOME. Violators will be asked to leave.
|Inclement Weather Notice & Rescheduled Games
|The MMRFL follows the guidelines of the MHSAA/NFHS regarding Lightning and delay / suspension of games. That means that if Lightning is seen, or Thunder heard, the game or practice must be delayed and teams removed from the field of play to safety. The game cannot be resumed until 30 minutes after the last flash of lightning is seen or Thunder heard. Based upon our schedule and the weather conditions once a game has been delayed the Area and League Staff and Game Officials will make the decision if and when a game is suspended for the day. Once suspended for the day we will either reschedule a time to finish the game or call the game complete at the point suspended. Any game rescheduled will need to be played on the next day (Sunday) or on a weekend during the season when neither team has another game per MHSAA rules. A game that is suspended part way through and rescheduled will resume at the same point in the game at which is was suspended.
As soon as we are aware of any problems we will post a notice on this Bulletin Board of any MMRFL games that are rescheduled, delayed, or cancelled for any reason. We will also update that notice for date, times, and locations of makeup game or status as soon as information is available. Games may also be cancelled or re-scheduled due to Tornado Warnings or other special conditions where school districts request we not use facilities. We suggest that you check the Bulletin board Saturday before you leave for a game if there is inclement weather on Friday or Saturday.
