RAINOUT INFORMATION
Skagit County Parks and Recreation


360-416-1361

The Infoline is updated daily by 4:30 PM.

The Skagit County Parks & Recreation (S.C.P.R.) - Rain Out Hotline can be reached at 360-419-3390. The purpose of the Rain Out Hotline is to provide teams with an avenue to verify whether softball league games are on as scheduled on days when weather is affecting field conditions.

Skagit County Parks & Recreation will update the Rain Out Hotline each day by 4:30 PM if field conditions deteriorate enough by that time so that games can not safely be played. Unless the S.C.P.R. cancels games, teams are required to show up at their assigned field at the designated time with the minimum number of players needed to start the game, no matter what the weather conditions. Still, the Rain Out Hotline provides S.C.P.R. the ability to update at any time (i.e. any time after 4:30 PM), which can accommodate players traveling from outlying areas (i.e. upriver, Whidbey Island, Snohomish and Whatcom Co.)

IF PLAYING CONDITIONS WORSEN AFTER 4:30 PM, THE RAIN OUT HOTLINE WILL BE UPDATED AT THAT TIME!

Often times field conditions are good enough after 5:00 PM or even during the start of games until weather and field conditions warrant a cancellation of games. Skagit County Parks & Recreation has staff monitoring the fields during poor weather right up until games start, which allows us to NOT cancel games right at 4:30 PM if the fields are still holding up and playable.

GAMES WILL NOT BE CANCELLED UNTIL THE FIELDS BECOME UNPLAYABLE. With players' safety at the forefront, Skagit County Parks & Recreation staff makes every effort on poor weather days to get games in. With improved drainage and infield material the Skagit Playfields are quite adept at handling Washington weather conditions, which has saved many Rain Out days over the last several years!
