Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions Harding Sports Management reserves the right to:

  • Reduce game times in order to catch up with schedule.

  • Finish game before inclement weather arrives, or to preserve field conditions.

  • Reschedule games, if possible.

  • Convert tournament to a ‘Festival’ format without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of the teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.

 If thunder or lightning is observed at any location play will be suspended immediately and players and fans will be required to leave the field.  Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or sighting of lightning is observed.  If a game is in progress, the period will end immediately.  If it is the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded.  If it is the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half.  Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time.  Subsequent games will begin immediately after preceding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game).  These games will consist of one 35 minute running time period until games are back on schedule.  Teams will have one 30 second timeout per game (during which time the clock will not stop) not to be used in the last two minutes.

  • Once games are back on schedule they will revert to two 20 minute running time periods.

 All games canceled due to weather will be considered a Tie for both teams.
