Default Heat Heat and more Heat

Lots of tournaments this weekend and crazy hot temps. I am not seeing alot of cancellations in my limited team circles. It seems unsafe for the kids to play over 100. Anyone out there seeing direction from clubs or is it basically left up to individual teams to go or not.

I have my fingers crossed that we cancel or at least move the middle of the day games to morning or night.

games are already going straight through from 8:00 am through 9:00 pm on every field. No where to move them. Instead players should be hydrating now. Coaches should be making liberal use of substitutions. Water breaks should include cooling towel usage. Sunscreen to prevent burns. Don't hang out at the fields all day. There are a myriad of ways to combat the heat for the 90 minutes that they are out there. Make use of them. The kids will do just fine.

one is more likely to be struck down by the Vid than from the heat this weekend.....let's hope for a safe weekend all around.

Until clubs or teams or lots of individual players decide to sit out these dangerously hot games, the insanity will continue. For everyone else, itís about the money. For parents, it should be about their childís health. Coaches too should put their players health first but when parents wonít even do that?

Most tournament games here are 60 mins for old ages (U13 and above), not 90 mins.

Three tournament this weekend:
Skagit Firecrackers in Burlington
Rainier Valley Classic in Starfire
Rainier Challenge in Pullyup

If it was really about the money, they would just cancel all games this weekend. I am sure there is a non-refundable clause and would actually make more money since they wouldnt have to pay any refs.
