When should an athletic practice or game be cancelled due to weather?

Rain, hail, snow, strong winds, and excessive heat are all possible reasons for canceling or postponing a practice or game.

It is important that coaches and athletes are made aware of such possibilities. A backup plan for practice may need to be developed with the coaches' input. For example, practice can be moved to an indoor facility, if available.
