Hot Weather

The risk of heat-related illness from vigorous sports activity increases with the temperature. The body generates heat that cannot be dissipated readily when the ambient temperature exceeds 85 degrees F, depending upon the humidity. Hot weather is considered at any point where the Heat Index reaches or exceeds 90. Coaches should follow the following procedures based on conditions:

  • Heat Index up to 89°: Normal Play. Regular hydration patterns
  • Heat index of 90°- 95°: Mandatory water breaks every 25 minutes.
  • Heat index of 96°-102°: Mandatory water breaks every 15 minutes.
  • Heat index over 103° (at start of training): All outside activity canceled

Winter Weather

Players are more susceptible to injuries during cold weather, particularly from pulled or torn muscles. Players should be encouraged to wear appropriate clothing to aid body heat retention yet afford adequate movement without creating a safety hazard. As a general rule, training programs will be canceled if the projected temperature (including wind chill) at the start of training is projected to be below 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
