Lightning Policy Reminder!

Schererville Soccer Club

Weather Policy

Games must be stopped, and the fields must be cleared if ANY of the following occur:

  • You see any lightning (even if the storm seems to be moving away from you)

  • You hear thunder

  • The lightning detector goes off

If any game has a stoppage while it is in the 2nd half of the game; that game is considered complete, and will not be re-played.

If the stoppage occurs in the first half of the game, then the following applies:

  • Fields will be cleared for 30 minutes.  The 30 minute rule applies even if the lightning detector sounds the all clear signal.

  • Each time lightning is seen, or thunder is heard during the 30 minutes, the clock will be re-set for another 30 minutes.

  • If the delay lasts one full hour, the game will be stopped, and can be made up if the coaches can agree on a time and place.

Anyone seen on the fields during this time can be ticketed by the Police!
Schererville Soccer Club will not be held responsible for persons disregarding instructions to exit the fields and seek shelter.
