IYHA's Weather Policy

IYHA will play regularly scheduled games and practices unless:

1. Zotec Partners Carmel Ice Skadium management closes the rink. (IYHA will post this condition on, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if this occurs. Follow us: @iyharacers)

2. City of Carmel declares a "Snow Emergency" and issues a Travel Warning, which closes the county roads to public travel in the City of Carmel.

Please check the websites above and/ or the local media to determine if any of the above circumstances are current at the time of your scheduled games. Ultimately,it is the decision of each family to determine if the weather is too bad even if an advisory is not in place. IYHA will not penalize a player in any way for missing a game due to bad weather and encourages all of its members to be safe when deciding to drive to a game in inclement weather.
