Heat Policy (for Hills midweek and weekend games)

 

View Heat Policy and printable chart with “cut off” curve.

It is based on a combination of Temp and Humidity.

Key points:

  • DO NOT Start a Game if the WBGT temp is 31 or above.
  • A game “in progress” may continue at WBGT 31 or 32.
  • All play must cease immediately above 32 WBGT.

The game is to be treated as a washout (heat effected) game.

Refer to your conference sheet for the minimum game time to become a “regulation game”.

(U8 Tball is 40 minutes,    U9 to U17 are 60 minutes.)

The Ground Official will monitor the environment from a “shaded area” on or near the playing surface.   (not over the “pie oven”)

The humidity/thermometers are in the canteen at Castle Glen and the mower shed at Knights.

Readings will be taken before and during all games..

Teams will be informed of the “ground officials” readings.

The Ground official is responsible for “Closing the ground”.  (For the remainder of the morning.)
