Today’s Spring thunderstorm underscores the danger that lightning can present to our soccer players.

In the event of thunder or lightning observed in the vicinity of a field, all activity on the field must cease immediately and for a period of at least 30 minutes after observed thunder or lightning. Coaches and other adults present must ensure that everyone goes to safe shelter in the event of thunder or lightning. DO NOT remain on the field or in other exposed areas.
