Cancellations

Games may be cancelled if conditions are unsafe to play. Parents can visit the DPR weather alert page (https://dpr.dc.gov/page/dpralerts) or call the DPR weather cancellation hotline at (202) 671-0331 to check for field closures. Soccer is an all-weather sport; normally, we do not cancel games because of a drizzle. Games are canceled when moderate to heavy rain and/or damp field conditions threaten the well-being of the fields or the safety of the players. Even if a cancellation is not made by game time, coaches and referees may use their discretion at the fields to ensure the safety of everyone involved. In the event of thunder and lightning while on the fields, even if it is not yet raining, players and fans should immediately seek shelter in a car or building. Play can continue at the game official's discretion if field conditions are safe 20 minutes after the last thunder or lightning. Additionally, after heavy rains, sometimes we must cancel games because of poor field conditions. Even if the weather has become fair, playing on fields that are saturated with water can lead to their rapid deterioration and can be dangerous to players, parents and referees. Thus, it is particularly important to check the Hotline after periods of extreme bad weather, even if the weather is sunny. The safety of the kids and potential damage to the field are what guides these decisions, not the comfort of the spectators.

Equipment

Players must wear uniforms provided by DC SCORES. Warm clothing may be worn underneath the uniform.

Transportation

Participants must have a completed registration form and signed Transportation Waiver (on back of schedule above) turned into their coach before traveling to away games. Games last approximately one hour. Please be mindful of DC traffic and allow for 30-45 minutes of travel time after the game is complete to return to your site.
