Severe Weather Play Guidelines

 Some of the most common severe weather conditions for our region are:
  • Hot weather – risks of dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke, sunburns
  • Cold weather – hypothermia
  • Thunder and Lightning Storms
  • Dust/Smoke (Air quality)
Hot Weather
When temperatures and humidity rise above normal levels, the potential for risk arises. Be aware of these dangers and be prepared to stop or delay games (or practices) to ensure proper hydration. The proper and continued hydration of players and volunteers is essential starting at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled event. Sunscreen of appropriate strength should be applied frequently.
Cold Weather
Risk of hypothermia, frostbite and injury from numbness are avoidable. Consider canceling games (or practices) when the weather is cold enough that players are adversely affected by it. Freezing rain, hail, snow, sleet or heavy rain can cause field conditions to deteriorate rapidly. Check field conditions before and during games (and practices). Be prepared to stop or delay games if severe weather conditions cause the field to become unsafe for participants.
Thunder and Lightning Storms
Always delay or cancel practices and games in the event of a thunder and lightning storm. Thunder and lightning storms are very serious and participants should never be allowed to practice or play games in a thunder and lightning storm. Wait a minimum of 30 minutes after no thunder has been heard to restart practices or games. Never wait for the rain to start before seeking shelter and do not leave the shelter just because the rain has ended. When thunder is heard, the lightning is within striking distance.
Other Emergency Planning
Wild fires, earthquakes, tornados, and chemical disasters occur without warning. Having a safety plan in place for these variables and the ability to obtain air quality advisement reports is highly advisable. Good judgment is very important. When there is doubt, always err on the side of caution.
