Weather Policy

Outdoor Soccer

DUSC’s general rule is that we will not cancel an Outdoor Session for rain but  will for lightning.  We will suspend a session for lightning temporarily and wait until 30 minutes after the last lightning strike. 

See below for policy on strike distances:

  • greater than 30 miles away: proceed unaffected
  • 20-30 miles away: proceed with monitoring
  • 10-20 miles away: proceed with caution and monitoring (use field space closer to shelters and gather all belongings under shelter before proceeding)
  • less than 10 miles away: seek shelter immediately

We can only suspend a session for a reasonable amount of time before darkness or another training session starts.  Those circumstances  would force a cancellation.

Torrential rains that make fields unplayable would also warrant a cancellation. For this specific circumstance, DUSC will try and post a Cancellation Notice on the website. If a notice is not posted on our website, activities will continue as scheduled. 

If possible, sessions will be made up if space and time are available to the club.
