GLSL Extreme Heat Policy for all Youth Games
If the humidex report is equal to or great than 40 at the 3:00 pm report on a game day, the game shall be cancelled.
Notice of Extreme Heat Cancellation
If the Humidex has not decreased below 40 and the cancellation policy is triggered, the GLSL shall post a Cancellation Notice on the website and issue an Extreme Heat Cancellation e-mail to team officials by 3:30 pm.
The Environment Canada weather website (Ottawa/Kanata-Orleans) will be used to determine the temperature for the purposes of this policy.
Note: this policy may be modified for the GLSL Festival/Cup
For games that are played in hot weather:
(From Item #8 of the GLSL Procedural Agreement)
During very hot weather when games are not
cancelled, Game Officials will confer with Coaches and Team Officials before
the start of the game in regards to providing water-breaks, consider shortening
the time played or postponing the game if both coaches agree to do so. During
games, Game Officials are encouraged to incorporate a water-break during injury
stoppages, penalty kicks, goal kicks, and other appropriate stoppages, etc., to
address this concern of ensuring the health and safety of our athletes.
