Updated Wednesday October 12, 2016 by Christian Athletic Association.

Notification of Cancellations:

  • Cancellations will be posted to the CAA homepage and emailed to the league.
  • CAA will notify the league of cancellations a minimum of 1 hour of scheduled events, when it is within our power to do so.
    • If San Jose Parks closes fields, it is effective immediately, and the CAA will notify the league as soon as possible.
    • Please note - that the San Jose Parks Department closes fields independently of CAA’s scheduled events. CAA may be notified that a field is closed less than an hour before an event. We will do our best to communicate such closures as quickly as possible.

  • Anytime San Jose City Parks Department closes fields - CAA events on those fields are cancelled, until SJCPD reopens the fields.

    • There are forecasted or existing severe weather conditions
