Inclement Weather Policy


Inclement Weather Policy

Innisfail Minor Soccer Association will run games/practices rain or shine.  We will only cancel due to weather if:

 

  • The fields are saturated with water, making for muddy slippery conditions
  • Lightning and/or Thunder is present at the time of play

Games will be called at 5:30 if rain has persisted throughout the day saturating the fields.  There will be a board member checking the fields to determine this. All coordinators will be contacted who will in turn contact the coaches.

 

On Field Policy

If we have started to play, we will continue if we are experiencing rain.  We will however end the game immediately if we see or hear lightning or thunder.  Anyone that sees/hears lightning/thunder can report it to any coach, coordinator or board member.  Anyone with a whistle will then blow THREE LONG WHISTLE BLASTS to signal to everyone on the field that thunder or lightning has been reported and we will immediately clear players, parents, and equipment from the Fields.

 Air quality policy 

If air quality is “3” or below continue with training as usual.
ii) If air quality is an index of 4 - 6 then be prepared to adjust the practice by:
? Reducing the intensity. ? Reducing the duration of the practice. ? Providing resting periods.
iii) If air quality is “7” or above reschedule.
2) Be aware of weather and other conditions:
a) Current forest fires and their locations in the province.
b) Local burning of stubble on fields or agricultural fields can increase particulate matter in the air without impacting the AQHI for a city.
c) Sudden and dramatic changes in wind strength and direction.
d) Proximity of any major road or highway.
e) Near or downwind of any industrial areas or other significant emission sources.
