The safety of our players, and volunteers is of the highest importance to the Northmont Soccer Classic. In the event that lightning has been sighted or there is a threat of severe weather, the following procedures will be used.
1. If lightning is sighted or severe weather is approaching the area, the Referee Director is notified at the referee tent. The referee will be responsible for communicating to the referees to clear the fields.
2. Once a lightning strike is observed, the Referee Director will start the clock for the required 30 minute wait period. Everyone must proceed to their cars and stay there until the "all clear" signal is given. Individuals are not allowed under trees or in shelters while the severe weather is in the area. Players are not permitted on the fields until the “all clear” signal is given.
3. During the 30 minute wait period, the tournament Director and Referee director will consult to assess the impact of the delay to determine the change necessary to resume play. The committee shall have the authority to make the following changes if necessary:
a. Shorten games
b. Terminate any game in progress. Games terminated after one half of play due to weather will be considered final and fully played.
c. Cancel any or all games, if necessary. The Northmont Soccer Classic Tournament committee is not responsible for expenses incurred by
cancellation of games.
d. Once the required wait period is over, the referee director will give the "all clear" signal to the referees and any games changes.
Cancellation of Entire weekend games due to weather:
In the event that an entire day or weekend of the Northmont Soccer Classic is cancelled due to weather, the Tournament Director will determine the feasible amount of a credit, if any, that will be given to each of the teams that apply to next years tournament fees for their teams. In any event no direct refund payments will be made to any teams.
