Weather Notice

All games will be played on state of the art artificial turf fields…No rainouts! However, because all fields are playable during the rain, game stoppage can still occur due to lightning and thunder. Weather updates will be posted on the Lou Fusz Soccer Club Facebook page (like us!), and sent via email/text messages through your GotSoccer account.
• Games could be delayed or shortened.
• Games played through halftime can be considered final if necessary.
• If a game is stopped in the second half of play, it can be considered final at that moment.
• Any additional changes to the schedule deemed necessary by the Tournament Committee will be exercised with as much notice as possible for all teams involved.
