Referee Policies

WYSA Thunder/Lightning & Humidity Policy

Thunder/Lightning - If you can hear thunder or see lightning, we advise you seek immediate safety indoors - “When thunder roars, go indoors.” After seeing lightning or hearing thunder, wait at least 30 minutes after hearing the last clap of thunder or flash of lightning before returning to the field. At some point, the match may be abandoned due to insufficient time to finish the match. If this occurs, the referee and teams should inform WYSA immediately, so the outcome of the match can be determined.

Humidity - On days where the Humidex value is 35-39, games will proceed as scheduled. A water break during each half may be allowed. When the Humidex value reaches 40-45, WYSA may consider delaying kick-off or rescheduling the match. If WYSA decides to go ahead with its scheduled matches, multiple water breaks will be permitted during the course of each half of play (additional time shall be added by the match official). All matches will be cancelled and rescheduled if the Humidex is 46 or above.
