In the event of thunder and/or lightning as well any other extreme weather, all outdoor practices or contests will be suspended. The occurrence of thunder and/or lightning is NOT subject to interpretation or discussion. When thunder is heard or lightning is seen all athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, etc., should immediately seek shelter in either a building or vehicle with a solid metal top (i.e.: car, van, bus). No one shall be permitted to seek shelter under a tree and everyone should stand clear of poles, antennas, towers, and underground watering systems.
Athletic practices or contests will not resume until 30 minutes after the last boom is heard or strike is seen. The certified athletic trainer will monitor this process to determine when it is safe to resume activity.
