When Thunder Roars - Go Indoors

Jul. 06, 2020

Lightning Safety and Severe Weather


When to pause or delay the game

As soon as you hear thunder, you must stop playing and seek shelter to eliminate the risk of being struck by lightning.


Where to go during a storm

If a fully-sheltered building is available, this should be your first choice.   If this isn`t possible, a vehicle is a safe second option.  If caught outdoors, take shelter in a low lying area and avoid trees or tall objects.


When to restart the game

You may resume the game 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder.  


Important Note:

Match Officials have the final say over delaying or restarting a match due to severe weather.
