Junior Heat Policy
The Heat Policy is split into two sections: Match Days and Training Days
HEAT POLICY – MATCH DAYS
The Executive Officer of the Association shall have the power to cancel play in all sub junior grades, if the day before any match the Bureau of Meteorology’s afternoon forecasted temperature for Adelaide is recorded as 40 degrees or more for the following match day. The Association shall reserve the right to cancel play if it feels the extended heat periods within the Adelaide metropolitan area has exceeded 38 degrees or more for 3 or more consecutive days leading up to match day.
On all Sunday morning match days, it is the sole responsibility of the club to nominate one person per team to dictate playing conditions as identified in this policy while using the below Bureau of Meteorology’s App. No other Weather App can be used.
On match days scheduled for Sunday mornings, 30 minutes before the scheduled commencement of play both coaches (together) will use the BOM App to check the actual temperature for the nominated suburb as per below table and if the temperature reading is,
40 degrees or greater every Sunday game will be considered abandoned
34 degrees or greater the game will be considered abandoned for u/10 and u/12 matches
36 degrees or greater the game will be considered abandoned for u/14 matches
