NLBA Snow Policy

The health and welfare of the children / athletes are first and foremost. If schools are closed in the afternoons due to snow, then there will be no sessions that day. There is a bit of a judgement call as well.: If schools are just closed because of the fear of snow and we have only rain, then the session would go ahead. The usual format is for the NLBA to post the notice on our home webpage and Facebook page. It will them be up to the coaches to send out an email directly to the group about the cancellations.
