"Whether it's cold, or whether it's hot, we're going to have weather, whether or not!"

  • The soccer season means a variety of different weather conditions
  • Depending on the time of the year, we will have heat, humidity, cold, and chilly weather
  • Everyone - players, coaches, and spectators - needs to be prepared for the weather

Is the game still on?

  • All games are played as scheduled, rain or shine, unless thunder and lightning are present or in the event the weather worsens
  • Yes, we even play if it is snowing!
  • Always assume that the game is still on (especially if mild and no lightning)
  • All game play is at the sole discretion of the referee and/or the regional commissioner or his/her designee

Warmer Weather

  • Proper hydration of players and volunteers is essential starting at least 24 hours prior to the practice or game
  • Dehydration, heat exhaustion, heatstroke and sunburn are avoidable
  • Bug spray is highly recommended

Cooler Weather

  • In cooler weather, safety should be the number one concern of everyone
  • Risk of hypothermia, frostbite, and injury from numbness are avoidable
  • Everyone should dress for the weather
  • In cold weather, everyone should wear water-resistant gloves
  • Sweatpants are okay, but the uniform shorts must be worn over them
  • The official uniform socks must also be worn over the sweatpants
  • Sweatshirts are fine as long as they are worn under the jersey
  • Any hoods must be tucked inside the jersey; stocking caps are preferred for safety reasons, and also because the referee must be able to see the jersey number
  • Heavier coats are fine, but may not be worn when playing
