MCDA events are rain or shine. We cannot control the weather!

In the event we have bad weather and your team chooses not to compete you WILL receive a FULL refund. NO QUESTIONS ASKED! If your team chooses to compete you will NOT receive a refund. The choice is yours. Refunds are mailed Monday after the event.

We will not hold the event outdoors if it jeopardizes the safety of the athletes however weather changes constantly. We will not make a decision to move or cancel an event until the night PRIOR to the event.

Please make your parents aware of our rain policies. Please ask your parents NOT to call us a week prior to the event because it may rain.


Most outdoor events have a back-up venue. The back-up venue is released to the coaches the NIGHT before the event. Based on the weather it is possible there might be a rain delay. Mats are tarped and kept dry. Just like a baseball game.

We try to keep all of the events in the parks. Most back-up venues are within 30min of the park. In some cases Saturday events may be pushed to Sunday if it is clear the following day.
