South West District Heat Advisory Policy

In the event of a heat advisory (as issued by Environment Canada) it is MANDATORY for match officials to provide water breaks as follows: 1. At the midway point of each half. 2. Provide a 60 second break. 3. Game clock is stopped during mandated water breaks. This is MANDATORY for player safety and cannot be ignored. If a heat advisory has not been issued and team officials are seeking water breaks, the request to the match official should occur prior to the game. These water breaks will be permitted at the discretion of the referee. The safety of players, coaches, management and spectators is the primary concern in any weather event that occurs during all matches sanctioned by SWRSA.
