    Weather Information

    In case of in climate weather, according to the city of Plymouth website, we can call 763-509-5205 to check for cancellations. It will be up to the coaches to check fields to see if they are fit to play on, if it is not raining and the infields do not have standing water, the games should be played. If the coaches feel the fields are not playable, please contact your players. It is the responsibility of the HOME coach to contact the umpire scheduled for the game and let the umpire know the game will not be played.


    We will handout contact information for coaches from St. Louis Park, Orono, Westonka and Hopkins. If we have games scheduled at home with teams from these associations, please contact them also and as soon as possible.
    Games should be suspended if thunder can be heard and/or lightening seen. A storm is within 10 miles.

    RAINOUTS
    Due to a lack of field space, if a game is rained out, the PWYSA does not reschedule rainout games. If teams wish to play make up games, it is the responsibility of the coaches to contact PWYSA.  If coaches want an umpire for the make-up game, they need to contact Kris Jacobson (Jacobson.kl@pg.com).
