Parents have last word on safety decision
AAHA will often run programming at the rink even as other entities (including the school district) may cancel activities due to weather.
The reason for this is that while snowy, icy conditions make large scale, long-distance travel a concern for some, many others live within a short, 4-wheel powered drive on local plowed roads, from the rink.
So we leave it up to parents to decide: based on conditions unique to your drive, your vehicle and your distance-- it is each parents' decision to allow their player to be EXCUSED from practice due to weather. There are no consequences for any player whose parents decide that travel is unsafe. That absence is always, 100% EXCUSED. Please contact the coach as per team guidelines for when a practice will be missed.
Obviously, if the RCC staff decide to close the arena, we will communicate cancellations as thoroughly and quickly as possible.
