All games are ON as scheduled and subject to the following protocol due to the predicted high temperatures:

Heat Advisory for Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, 2022 -
Due to the sudden high-heat anticipated for this weekend, the following guidance is in effect.  The coaches should meet with the referee prior to the start of the game to be sure that they understand the changes that will be in effect.  We encourage you to print this message and show it to the referee(s).

In addition to these game modifications, coaches should encourage all players to properly hydrate prior to arriving at the field, and to drink water frequently when able throughout the game.  Coaches are encouraged to rotate players on the field, and to seek shaded areas for seating where possible.

NATURAL GRASS FIELD GAMES (both Saturday and Sunday games) -
For all games played on natural grass fields, teams shall take a 2-minute water break at the mid-point of each half of play.  This water break shall be a “running clock”, and will not serve to extend the length of either half of play.  A normal halftime interval shall also be observed.  In effect, your total “playing time” shall be reduced by 4 minutes in order to facilitate the water breaks, while keeping all games on schedule throughout the day.

SYNTHETIC TURF FIELD GAMES (Saturday games) -
For all games played on synthetic turf fields, teams shall take a 5-minute water break at the mid-point of each half of play.  This water break shall be a “running clock”, and will not serve to extend the length of either half of play.  A normal halftime interval shall also be observed.  In effect, your total “playing time” shall be reduced by 10 minutes in order to facilitate the water breaks, while keeping all games on schedule throughout the day.  This reduction in active play time is important, due to the additional heat associated with synthetic turf surfaces.

SYNTHETIC TURF FIELD GAMES (Sunday games) -
For all games played on synthetic turf fields with kickoff times prior to 4:30 pm, teams shall take a 5-minute water break at the mid-point of each half of play.  This water break shall be a “running clock”, and will not serve to extend the length of either half of play.  A normal halftime interval shall also be observed.  In effect, your total “playing time” shall be reduced by 10 minutes in order to facilitate the water breaks, while keeping all games on schedule throughout the day.  This reduction in active play time is important, due to the additional heat associated with synthetic turf surfaces.

For games on Sunday with kickoff times of 4:30 pm or later, either coach may choose to include the 5-minute water break if the high-heat has continued (it is expected to break in the mid-to-late afternoon time frame).
