Softball Canada Inclement Weather Policy

Key Points to remember:

  • Keep a safe distance from tall objects, such as trees, hilltops and telephone poles.
  • Stay away from objects that conduct electricity, such as metal fences, bats, golf clubs, and bicycles.
  • If you are in a group in the open, spread out, keeping people several metres apart.
  • USE THE 30/30 RULE:
  • Take appropriate shelter when you count 30 seconds or fewer between lightning and thunder.
  • Remain sheltered for 30 minutes after the last thunder.
