Weather Guidelines

The following information explains various weather conditions that may impact play at the Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex, and how staff will proceed in weather conditions.

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 a building 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:

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:

Field misting fans will be used if the ambient air temperature and/or heat index reaches 90 degrees.

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

Once the field temperature reaches 120 degrees (identified by a field thermometer), staff will activate the field sprinklers for 5-10 minutes per field. Players will be required to clear the fields during this time. Areas not reached by in-ground sprinklers will be hand watered.

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.
