Niagara Falls Slo-Pitch League

RULE # 1

Since some teams & coaches don’t follow the league rule on alcohol in the park, we have been forced to change the rule.

IF ANYONE is caught with alcohol in the park, that player & the coach will receive a 2-game suspension. If this does not solve the problem, the game will be forfeited as well as the next game.

Enough is Enough - Leave the alcohol outside the park

There will be no looking the other way

There will be no putting it in a cup

Umpires have been notified

NO WARNINGS - ZERO TOLERANCE

The rules surrounding the "Code of Conduct"Code of Behavior" are very clear and WILL BE adhered to.

The NFSPL has a "Code of Behavior" (see below Rule # 4)

Rain Outs

Our rain-out policy is:

If the weather is "iffy", check the website!

The City will inform Executive by 3:00pm on game day if fields are unplayable.

If you have not received messages/emails from the executive, check the website again before you leave for the park.

No messages/emails means you must show up at the park. Games are still on

(at the discretion of the umpires.)

You can call the City of Niagara Falls

Field Closure hotline 905-356-7521 ext 3399 after 3:00 p.m.

You have to continue listening as they go through all city parks, until they get to the park you are looking for.
