Foul Weather Protocols
Teams, Coaches, Parents, and Fans: Please find below information regarding how we will proceed in the event of foul weather conditions.
- Currently, weather projections look pretty good. There could be some rain here or there, but at this time (two weeks out) things look fine. Obviously, this could change. Therefore:
o Sprinkles, light showers, and even brief heavier showers should have no impact on play.
o Lightning or heavy rains that create dangerous, unplayable, or destructive conditions will cause delays. Should this happen, updates will be posted at www.thevikingcup.org, and tournament staff will contact coaches directly if needed.
o The Viking Cup makes every effort possible to meet the 3-game guarantee even in the event of inclement weather. There are no open fields within the schedule, but everything is lighted. Games can be pushed later into the evening if needed, and, should it become necessary, games can also be moved to Sunday. Historically, there has only been one year where we were unable to accommodate all bracket games despite many weather events over 30 years.
o Coaches will receive outlook updates next week and, if warranted, plans to adjust.
