 Practice Cancellations

Always assume there is practice, even if it is raining. Practices are rarely cancelled due to rain unless lightning occurs. In the event of lightning, practice will be suspeneded, and it may be requested that children be picked up immediately. The Canton Lions staff will remain with the children until every child has been picked up. If practice should be cancelled for any other reason, it will be announced by the unit director or cheerleading director. A represenative of the Canton Lions will be at the field to inform parents as well as an email sent out.
