Cancellations

Thursday, August 10
All softball games scheduled for this evening have been cancelled due to wet field conditions.
Please be sure to check the website for updated schedules.

Please**Please note that this page will not be updated daily, only in the event of cancellations**

Manitowoc Parks & Recreation Department wants you to be safe and have quality facilities to use for your sport league, class or special event. Therefore, when determining whether to cancel an event due to weather conditions we ask ourselves the following questions:

  • Is it safe for our patrons and staff to travel to our facilities for our scheduled activities?
  • Is it safe for patrons to participate in our scheduled activity given the facility's current and anticipated condition?
  • Can the facility accommodate the scheduled activity without sustaining damage?
If the answer to one or more of these questions is "No," then we will cancel the activity. If all can be answered with "Yes," our activity will remain on schedule.

Why 4:30p.m.?
The cancellation page will be updated by 4:30 pm, in the event of cancellations.The reason for this policy is to give the weather and our staff the benefit of the doubt that our facilities may be readied. If after 4:30 pm, cancellation or postponement decisions will be made by the umpire. If the emergency warning sirens go off during or just prior to game play, games will be immediately cancelled. Also check our Facebook page for cancellation information.

The only exception to this policy is when we are using a school district facility and school is called off due to weather. In this case, our programs are automatically canceled.
