Thunderstorm Procedures/Guidance

"If you hear thunder, clear the field for a minimum of 5 minutes. If you see lightning, clear the field for 20 minutes. If either of those re-occur, the timer is reset. If a game is delayed by more than 30 minutes, it should not be played."

The head coach (or presiding coach) should manage these situations and other coaches are expected to support the coach in the decision made. Players should be under cover wherever possible. Especially if exposed to the conditions, players should put sticks away. Remember that safety should be paramount.

If similar conditions occur for away games, similar guidelines should be followed. It will ultimately be up to the home coach (or organization) as to whether the game is delayed, canceled, or postponed.
