RDL Cancellation Policy
All postponements and cancellations due to inclement weather are the responsibility of the
home club. These decisions must be communicated to the RDL Director after consultation
between the host club, visiting club and match officials. The host club should notify the RDL
Director, referee assignor and opposition coaching staff via phone call should they anticipate
any issues that could affect the scheduled matches.
If the decision is made to cancel the game, the host club will call the visiting team’s coaching
staff immediately, then an e-mail should be sent to Gary Hall and the Referee Assignor
referencing the cancellation and game details.
The RDL Director will be on call for any game-day disputes.
Rescheduling Postponed Game
Clubs will have 14 days to arrange a reschedule date for any postponed/cancelled games. Fees
associated with the rescheduled fixture will be the responsibility of the home club.
All U12 games must kick off the second half to be considered a completed game. If the game
does not make the designated threshold, the RDL Director will have the authority to review all
of the facts in determining whether and when a game should be rescheduled, who should bear
the financial burden as a result of cancellation or rescheduling and whether the game should be
forfeited or cancelled permanently.
Change of Venue
Any change of location for an RDL game will need to be made in writing to the RDL Director a
minimum of four (4) days prior to a schedule fixture date. The host club should also notify the
opponents coaching staff a minimum of four (4) days prior to the scheduled fixture.
