Weather


ELITE TOURNAMENTS LIGHTNING PROTOCOL

 

Elite Tournaments monitors weekend weather very closely for each tournament. The following situations are protocols that will be implemented in the case of lightning:

 

Game Has Not Kicked Off:

  • Clock will start running when the game is scheduled to begin.
  • If the delay ends and allows you to play at least 20 minutes, the game will resume with the limited time remaining on the clock. Teams and referees can determine warm-up time and halftime length, but the clock will continue to run. 
  • If the delay does not allow you to complete 20 minutes to make the game official, the game will be cancelled, and scored as a 0-0 tie.

 

Game Has Kicked Off:

  • If your game has kicked off and the first 20 minutes of the game have been completed, then the score will stand as is.
  • If a game is suspended due to a lightning delay and the game has not reached the 20-minute mark, the game clock will continue to run.
  • Clock will start running when the game is scheduled to begin.
  • If the delay ends and allows you to play at least 20 minutes, the game will resume with the limited time remaining on the clock. Teams and referees can determine warm-up time and halftime length, but the clock will continue to run.
  • If the delay does not allow you to complete at least 20 minutes to make the game official, the game will be cancelled, and scored as a 0-0 tie.

 

Safety Protocol:

  • In the event of lightning, all play on fields must be stopped. Players, coaches, spectators, and referees must clear the playing surface and go to their vehicles.
  • Games will only be allowed to resume after 30 minutes have passed since the last lightning strike within a 10-mile radius.

 

** This policy is subject to adjustment if there are additional clear and present options approved by the client and/or tournament committee **
