Dr Pepper StarCenter: Inclement Weather Policy

Updated December 2015

It is the goal of the Dr Pepper StarCenters to remain open and hold all programming as scheduled.

The Dr Pepper StarCenters will follow the delayed start schedule of the ISD in which the facility is located. (For example, if Frisco ISD has a delayed start and opens at 10:00AM, the Dr Pepper StarCenter, Frisco will open at 10:00AM.)

If ISD's schools are closed schools for the day, the Dr Pepper StarCenters will be closed for all AM programing and will re-assess the current conditions at 12:00PM to make a determination on programming for the duration of the afternoon and early evening. DPSC's will then re-assess conditions again at 5:00PM and make a determination on all nightly programing that is scheduled to begin after 7:00PM.

For all morning events on non-school days, we will assess the conditions before 9:00PM on the day before. We will reassess again in the morning and make a determination before 12:00PM on all afternoon events.

Delayed opening and closing announcements will be posted on the Dr Pepper StarCenter web site (, via Dr Pepper StarCenter's Twitter feed (, and at

This policy does not include specialty events (i.e., tournaments, figure skating competitions, etc…). The event organizing committee will assess these events on an individual basis. In addition, League rescheduling will be done on a case-by-case basis. Contact your facility General Manager and/or Hockey Programs Manager for more details.

Thank you,


Dr Pepper StarCenter, Management
