As with any outdoor sporting event, weather is always an item of great concern. Our weather guidelines are aligned with those suggested/used by USSF and ISA. All games will be played on synthetic turf, and high quality grass fields which allows us to play even through heavy rain. However, game stoppage can occur due to hazardous conditions such as lightning or temperature levels. Weather updates / adjustments will be sent via email/text messages through your GotSoccer account.
Adjustments made to games due to weather are at the discretion of the tournament committee (comprised of Tournament Director, Event Executive Staff, and Young Athlete Center's ATC staff). It is our intention to provide a fun, playable, safe environment for all teams participating to get the competition they have come in search of.
• Games could be delayed or shortened.
• Games played until/beyond halftime can be considered final at the moment stopped if necessary.
Should temperatures exceed 93 degrees Fahrenheit, matches may be halted or shortened in accordance with USSF guidelines. All matches will have a mandatory water break during each period of play. The water break will be 3 minutes long and the match clock will run during the break.
• U14 and younger divisions, adjustments/cancellations will be made when expected game time temperature is 18 degrees cold index with windchill or 106 degrees heat index. For games played in U15 and older divisions, adjustments/cancellations will be made when expected game time temperature is 14 degrees cold index with windchill or 106 degrees heat index.
• Any additional changes to the schedule deemed necessary by the Tournament Committee will be exercised with as much notice as possible for all teams involved.
