Weather Guidelines

Rain Storm:

  • No lightning: Play may continue.
  • Lightning: Announcements will be made over the PA system notifying everyone to immediately clear the fields and take shelter in their vehicles.

Hail Storm:

Announcements will be made over the PA system notifying everyone to immediately clear the fields and take shelter in one of the buildings or their vehicles.

Tornado Watch:

Announcements will be made over the PA system. Staff will instruct players and spectators of what will be required if a warning is issued. This warning will be repeated every 15 minutes:

"The soccer complex is now in a tornado watch area. If a tornado warning alert is sounded, all persons in the area will go immediately to the nearest building (concession or field house) and follow directions of soccer complex staff. Those desiring to leave are free to do so."

Tornado Warning:

Staff will direct players and spectators to the nearest building (concession or field house). Staff will assist all players and spectators in getting to the specified secure areas.

Extreme Heat:

In the event that field temperatures reach elevated levels, staff will be responsible for "cooling" the fields to an acceptable playing temperature.

  • Staff will monitor the field temperature on an hourly basis when the air temperature and/or heat index reaches or is forecast to reach 90 degrees.
  • Once the field temperature reaches 120 degrees (identified by a field thermometer), staff will activate the field sprinklers for 5-10 minutes per field.
    • Occupants will be required to clear the fields during this time.
    • Areas not reached by in-ground sprinklers will be hand watered.
  • Field misting fans will be used if the ambient air temperature and/or heat index reaches 90 degrees.
