Athletic Directors, Coaches and Athletic Trainers can control the environment for a game in most areas. There’s one area they can’t control, however: The weather.
Playing under poor weather conditions can increase the possibility of injury to your athletes, and holding an athletic event during the threat of severe weather can impact the lives of your athletes, athletic staff and spectators.
Most athletic staff understand the need to monitor lightning and extreme heat conditions before holding an athletic event, but high wind and steady rain can cause dangerous situations for athletes and fans as well. If you don’t have a severe weather alerting system in place already, it’s critical that you and develop and implement one before your next season starts. Get started by learning what to look for in a system to follow best practices.
