Thanks for your help this season. I look forward to working with everyone again in the fall.
NEBRASKA STATE SOCCER ASSOCIATION (ALL LEAGUES) WEATHER PLAN JULY 19, 2014
Weather Safety Plan/Lightning Safety
Before games are played, league organizers are listening and monitoring the latest forecast to determine the likelihood of thunderstorms. If thunderstorms are forecasted, league organizers will consider canceling or postponing the activity. Once people start to arrive at an activity/event, the guidelines below should be followed.
In general, a significant lightning threat extends outward from the base of a thunderstorm cloud about 6 to 10 miles. Therefore, people should be in a safe place when a thunderstorm is 6 to 10 miles away. League Representatives, Site Supervisors and/or Referees can stop the activity/event. Team Staff should get the attention of the Referee if they witness any of the criteria within the Safety Plan. Here are some criteria used to stop activities:
1. If you see lightning or;
2. If you hear thunder.
