Weather Policy

For Ages 12 and Under:

In the case of 4 year olds 5 year olds, where there are no referees on-site, the coaches will decide whether the game should be cancelled. All other age groups should report to their scheduled fields to see if games are being played.
 
Heat: If the heat index is 100 or higher, then all games for ages 4-11 will be cancelled!
Storms: In the event of a storm, play will be suspended and will not be resumed until 30-minutes after the last sighting of lightning or the last sound of thunder heard.
 
The decision to cancel a game due to weather rests solely with the referee and is made at the field at game time.

If a parent requests that their child leave the game because they are uncomfortable with the playing conditions, the coach must honor the parents request to remove the child from play.

For Ages 12+, follow the official Bay-Lakes policy:

1. Extreme heat: When the temperature is above 90 degrees AND the heat index is at a danger level, 5:30 or earlier games will be suspended by "Bay-lakes" or the referee and may be rescheduled. Later matches may still be played but should incorporate longer and/or more frequent breaks. Plenty of fluids should be available.

2. Extreme Cold: When the temperature drops below 30 degrees AND the wind chill index indicates a temperature below zero degrees, then the match should be suspended by "Bay-Lakes" or the referee and may be rescheduled at another time.

3. Lightning/Thunder: In the event of a storm, play must be stopped and suspended by the referee at the field until the danger has passed using the following criteria as a minimum.

a. Sighting of a lightning flash or the hearing of the associated thunder shall be reason to stop and suspend a game.

b. play shall not be resumed prior to 30-minutes after the last sighting of lightning or the last sound of thunder heard.

4. Visibility: When standing at one goal you can’t see the other goal, the game may be suspended by the referee at the field.

5. Wind: When the ball is placed on level ground and it does not remain stationary, the game may be suspended by the referee at the field.

6. Field Conditions: When a field is in poor or dangerous playing condition, games may be suspended or relocated by "Bay-Lakes" a district or the referee.

 

Updates related to weather (if any) may be communicated on "RAINOUT" and on the bay-lakes.org website. However, please be aware that games are normally only called off at GAME TIME due to weather conditions AT GAME TIME. If you have a game scheduled, YOU SHOULD ARRIVE AT YOUR GAME and see what determination is made by the referees AT GAME TIME. They may elect to call the game, play the game, or delay the start of the game. games can be delayed by more than 45 minutes and still play half of the game, which is enough for an official game. Coaches MAY NOT cancel games.

If games are called off early in the day (items 1, 2, 6), you may receive notification via "RAINOUT", and on the front page of bay-lakes.org website. This has occurred in past years due to poor conditions of fields, extreme heat or extreme cold but it is rare for this to occur. Bay-Lakes games are played across a wide geographic area (Wrightstown, De Pere, Seymour, Pulaski, Green Bay, etc), so the only reasonable way to handle game cancellations is to allow the referees to make the determination at game time.
