Heat Wave Policy
During the summers, occassionally, we have high temperatures. These heat wave will not

play or to allow their child to play. The club is responsibile for erecting the fields

everyone that with these rises in the temperature to be aware of the fact that summer
heat waves can cause serious health issues, particularly for babies, infants and the
elderly who are more vulnerable to the risks of dehydration and sunburn. Wear loose-

drink plenty of water regularly and often; take frequent breaks; be alert to any signs of
heat related physical signs such as head aches or dizziness. Heat exhaustion can cause
muscle cramps, low blood pressure, rapid pulse and nausea. Our fundamental concern
is the safety and well-being of our players, referees, coaches and attendees. Please
ensure you take the necessary measures to have a safe and fun experience. As always,
use common sense.
