Game Cancellation Policy and Makeups

Game Cancellation Policy

ONLY RLL BOARD CAN CANCEL OR POST PONE GAMES.  COACHES AND MANAGERS CANNOT CANCEL OR POST PONE GAMES.

Games are on until you are notified through Blue Sombrero via email.  Players, Managers and Coaches are notified all at the same time of cancellations.  This is the value of the new website RLL migrated to because of members' requests.  Managers will only know when Players know through Blue Sombrero.  Decisions are made around 4:00 to 4:30 pm on weekday gameday unless obvious or 8:00 am on Saturdays.  Do not ask your manager as they have no additional information or field information. 

 Games will be cancelled due to weather and members notified through the little league website, make sure you have loaded all desired communication information into your Blue Sombrero Account.  RLL will change the location to 

"RAIN OUT INCLEMENT WEATHER GAME CANCELLED RESCHEDULE –    MGRS Follow Reschedule Protocol"

You will receive an email indicating a change in location and field which will indicate Rain out inclement weather game cancelled reschedule - Mgrs follow reschedule protocol which is described below.  The game day and time will not be moved until both managers perform the protocol below.  This change in location will notify all that the game has been cancelled and must be rescheduled by both team managers.

 1.   Games can ONLY be cancelled by Robbinsville Little League Board

a.    Specifically the President of RLL (Mike Rosica) and Vice President of Softball (Scott Veisz).  The President provides overall guidance and authority while all technical information and evaluation of general field input comes from Fields and Facilities Officer.  Numerous people provide input about fields as needed.  The Board takes Safety as Priority One as well as making sure the kids get to play and minimize make ups.

2.    Coaches and Managers CANNOT cancel games

6. Borrowed Players CANNOT Pitch.  Borrowed players need to be of like kind and ability.  Opposing Managers must be notified of Borrowed players and the opposing Manager has reasonable approval rights.  Although this will never happen, if no resolution can be made the VP of Baseball or Softball will be contacted or the President of RLL who will make one final decision which both managers will abide by.
