Severe Weather Policy
Severe Weather Policy
In the event that severe weather is projected ( i.e. National Weather Service issues Watch or Warning ) the following guidelines are in effect for our NUSC complex.
Should severe weather approach during a practice, the responsibility to clear the fields belongs to everyone. Parents, coaches, and players should immediately clear the fields if the lightning detector alarm sounds and take cover in their vehicles. This will constitute a 30 min delay in practice beginning or resuming. If there is a second alarm, that is an additional 30 min delay. Should that mean that your practice would not begin and finish before the next session is set to commence, you will cancel for the evening. NUSC does not have on site personnel available every night monitoring the weather, but we do check radars regularly. NUSC asks parents and coaches to be proactive and seek shelter should there be any doubt.
NUSC site coordinators will monitor the weather conditions. The NUSC site coordinator will monitor for lightening with the detector. In the event that lightening is detected:
When the light on the detector blinks, lightning is 12 miles away. Games/Practice can continue at that time. When the detector sounds an alarm lightning is 8 miles away. Players, coaches and spectators MUST take cover in their vehicles for a 30 min delay. Should the alarm sound a second time, that would be an additional 30 min delay. All games will stop and all players and training/coaching staff will report to and get inside vehicles. Spectators will be asked to do the same.
No game will be resumed or a new game started until no strikes are detected for 30 minutes.
NUSC club administrators will send out communication via social media and email with more information about when the games will start again or if they will be cancelled/rescheduled.
