Weather Policy

GAME DAYS

 

In the event of rain (no lightning or thunder) games will play as scheduled.  Rain is a nuisance, we understand, but we can play football in the rain.

 

The athletic trainer on duty, (in addition to their other on-field duties) is also responsible for monitoring weather. They use the "Weather Bug" app, which reports the proximity of lightning. If lightning is within a 10 mile radius, ALL play is to stop, and fans, players, and coaches are to seek IMMEDIATE shelter in your personal vehicle. We are not allowed to resume until 30 minutes after a lightning strike within that 10 mile radius. Working in conjunction with the athletic trainer, the executive board members will make the call regarding resuming play, or postponing the games. Then the exec board will communicate via email blasts, Twitter, and Facebook posts.

 

PRACTICES

 

In the event of rain (no lightning or thunder), it is up to the Head Coach to decide if practice is to happen (or continue). Your team's head coach will communicate any schedule changes. 

 

Coaches (and team mom's) will use the Weather Bug app to monitor any approaching weather systems. If lightning is within a 10 mile radius, ALL play is to stop, and fans, players, and coaches are to seek IMMEDIATE shelter in your personal vehicle. Practices are not allowed to resume until 30 minutes after a lightning strike within that 10 mile radius. Your team's head coach will communicate practice cancellation, or rescheduling.

 

Note: We realize that sometimes it "looks" like the storm has passed, and this frustrates us as well, but safety is the primary concern. Keep in mind that lightning 8-10 miles away is often not visible from where you are. Again, safety is the priority when making the call regarding weather.

 

Please understand that we are working diligently to get games rescheduled, and we appreciate your patience and flexibility on the matter. There are a lot of moving parts in coordinating game schedules (field availability, referees and workers for the fields, as well as working with neighboring communities Traders Point and Zionsville).
