Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather, each individual must make the decision whether or not to attend his or her game, match or tournament. Your safety is important to us and your circumstances (such as where you live) may dictate your ability to come to RVC regardless of whether or not we are open.

Typically, we will make every effort to open for tournaments and other special events especially when out of town players may be participating. We will close if we feel conditions are unsafe for the majority of participants.

The assumption should be made that we will be open unless an announcement that we are closed is made. We will make every effort to make a decision/ announcement no later than two hours before the start of the event (league play, tournament, etc.). So, for Adult League which begins at 6:00 p.m., a decision to close will be made by 4:00 p.m; a juniors’ practice which begins at 2:00 p.m. will know by noon, etc.

RVC does not reschedule matches which are cancelled due to reasons beyond the club’s control, such as inclement weather, power outages, etc. With this in mind, RVC management will wait as long as possible to determine whether the conditions warrant closing the facilities.

Once a decision has been made to close, information will be posted on: RVC website when possible, RVC’s Facebook page, Twitter (@RVC_NET) and on local TV stations WTVR6, WRIC8 & WWBT12 .

Due to the number of persons involved, notification will NOT be given to individual teams or members.
