Weather Related Cacellations
With an inconsistent forecast through the winter season, practice and game cancellations are inevitable. Our first priority, is getting practices and games that can be played in a safe evnironement in, without having to cancel or reschdeule. There are times where cancellations are necessary, and how will you know about them? 

1) Each Coach will use their consistent form of communication (email, group text, etc...) to let families know
2) Announcements are put on for the students to hear on campus
3) A post is made on the athletics website front page and team page (
4) Follow us on social media (@areteprepchargers) for cancellation and reschedule news.
