If it is raining on a Friday/Saturday night we will call off games ONLY if the rain is so heavy that the fields are already too wet to play on.
BUT if the fields are ok we will wait until Saturday/Sunday morning to call the games. Luckily we live in So Cal and we can have healthy rains on a Friday/Saturday night and wake up Saturday/Sunday morning to sunny skies. That said, we are at the mercy of the schools and if they do not want us on the fields, we will not find out until we get to the school grounds on Saturday/Sunday morning at 8:30 AM. At that point, we will put it on the web site as soon as physically possible.
So if you have the first game of the day you will have to go to the fields regardless. (sorry)

It is more the rain the day or night before a game that causes us to cancel games,
rather than the weather at game time. We can play in the rain But a heavy evening rain will turn a field into mud.
LAFC So Cal / WVSL Rules for Playing in Bad Weather
Soccer is played in almost all weather conditions. Because of our relatively short playing season and inability to make-up most games, we try to stay on schedule whenever possible. But safety is still priority one.
The problem is this: everyone has a different opinion as to what is a threatening weather condition. LAFC So Cal / WVSL has established the guidelines below to follow during adverse weather conditions.
Referees and coaches are responsible for making this decision to suspend play. However, in any situation, parents should not hesitate to remove players from any weather condition they feel is unsafe or inappropriate. No one will be penalized for any safety-related actions taken.
Below are the league rules for playing under bad weather:
