The Pope is scheduled to visit Philadelphia the weekend on 9/26-27/15. PAGS will NOT postpone games scheduled for that weekend. There are only nine weekends, excluding Columbus Day weekend, between the start of the season on 9/5-6/15 and the end of the season on 11/14-15/115. The league has nine game schedule over these nine weeks, with the weekend of 11/21-22/15 reserved as make up dates for the playoffs in case of inclement weather. The season cannot be extended another week because of Thanksgiving.
As of 7/26/15 the city of Philadelphia has not announced official road/bridge closures. In addition, the number of teams playing in PAGS that are actually located in the city is not high. None of the foregoing prohibits individual teams who feel that their team may be impacted by the Papal visit from working with their opponent to reschedule individual games. Games that are rescheduled must be played by 11/15/15, except for the U13 and U14 age groups. Since these age groups have playoffs any rescheduled game must be played by 11/11/15 in order to count in the standings for playoffs. All games must be rescheduled by 8/20/15.
