Weather Cancellations

Thunder Policy

The Coal City Soccer Club aims to get every scheduled game in. In the case of inclement weather, the official policy it to play in rain and/or cold. If the weather becomes a danger to children, the game may be cancelled during or before the scheduled match begins.

If lightning is visible or thunder is audible, there is a mandatory 30 minute delay before play can resume (remember, where there is thunder- there is lightning). Once the area is lightning free for 30 minutes play can continue. If lightning is visible at any time in a delay (from 1 to 29 minutes into it), the clock starts over and play cannot begin for another 30 minutes.

Games that are more than halfway complete at the time of delay will be considered a completed full game and not rescheduled.  Games that are not halfway completed will be rescheduled if possible.  Please contact a Coal City Soccer Club Board Member if your game has been cancelled so that proper rescheduling can occur; referees need Executive Board Member authorization in order for them to be paid and field availability needs to be checked.

Coaches are advised that they should be following the same policy for cancellation of practice.

Heat Policy

In the case of high heat, practices and games may be cancelled.  Our heat policy is to cancel all activities (games or practices) for the U6 and U8 divisions if the temperature or heat index reaches 100 degrees.  We will cancel all activities (games or practices) for the U10 and up divisions, if the temperature or heat index reaches 105 degrees.

*****Coaches and parents please use your discretion when temperatures rise on whether you feel your child(ren) can handle the heat.  If you practice in temperatures above 80 degrees please send your child with multiple waters.  The hotter it is outside, the more water to send!! 

When the temperature or heat index is above 90 degrees, it is mandatory that children take a break whenever they feel necessary or every 10 minutes for a minimum of 2 minutes. 

If a game is cancelled due to heat, Coal City Soccer Club will try their best to reschedule the game. 

COAL CITY SOCCER CLUB HOLDS THE RIGHT TO CANCEL ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES AT ANY TIME IF THEY DEEM IT NECESSARY FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN.  ANY COACH WHO DOES NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL RECEIVE A PERMANENT STRIKE ON THEIR COACHING RECORD.
