Event Cancellation Policy

The decision to cancel an event is taken very seriously. We may need to cancel events for several reasons including, but not limited to, the following:

    • Severe Weather Conditions (such as ice, snow, severe thunderstorms, flooding, etc.)
    • Exceptional structural circumstances to the facility (including power outages, loss of heat, loss of water, fire, or damage from a natural disaster)
    • Significant illness which may involve the closing of a facility prior to the event or an illness arising at an event (including a severe or contagious illness which may have had caused the facility to be closed the previous day, or a severe illness which requires extraordinary action by medical personnel.)
    • Significant number of teams having to cancel due to a contagious illness within the team.

The FTC UT Affiliate Partner and the Tournament Director will determine if there will be a delay, early dismissal, or cancellation of the tournament or if the tournament will be held in an alternative form. There also may be situations where the local venue manager (such as a school’s principal) and/or relevant government agency cancels an event at their location.
