EXTRA INFORMATION

Here is some information below on how BSL follows the 10U & 13U MURSL Weather Cancellations:

 

Per MURSL Website: http://mursl.org/rules-forms--policies.html

Game Cancellations If a game is to be canceled for any reason, the Referee Assignor must be notified DIRECTLY, with as much advance notice as possible. If a game is to be canceled on the same day it is scheduled to be played, notifying the Referee Assignor PRIOR to 3 PM guarantees that the game will be canceled without incurring any fees. If the notification is made AFTER 3 PM, and the scheduled Referee is unable to be contacted in order to be notified of the cancellation, then that Referee will ultimately be entitled to the full game fee, which will be billed to the Club at the end of the season by the Referee Assignor. 

 

Thunder & Lightning Rule 

The occurrence of thunder and/or lightning is not subject to interpretation or discussion; thunder is thunder, lightning is lightning. 

When thunder is heard and/or when lightning is seen, the following procedures should be adhered to:

Practices: 

• Suspend play and cancel the remaining practice 

• Direct all to take shelter at home, must leave fields 

• No one is to be on the field of play during this suspension. Please take this seriously for the safety of individuals. 

• Do not permit people to stand under or near a tree; and have all stay away from poles, antennas, towers and underground watering systems. 

Games: 

• Referee WILL suspend play and direct coaches to inform players and fans to take shelter, a building normally occupied by the public or if a building is unavailable, participants should go inside a vehicle with a solid metal top (e.g. bus, van, car). 

• No one is to be on the field of play during this suspension. Please take this seriously for the safety of individuals. 

• Do not permit people to stand under or near a tree; and have all stay away from poles, antennas, towers and underground watering systems. 

• After thunder and/or lightning have left the area, wait 30 minutes after the last boom is heard or strike is seen before resuming play or competition. This will be the Referee’s call only on if game is to be canceled at any point in time. 

• With regard to doubleheaders, if the early game is to be delayed more than 45 minutes, then that game must be canceled in favor of getting the late game in. 

Heat Advisory Rule 

MURSL will make a determination by noon if Games/Practices will be canceled due to Heat Advisory. MURSL will be use the following Heat Index Procedure (same rules as NYSPHSAA): 

• Heat index will be reviewed at noon before the contest/practice by MURSL when the air temperature is 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) or higher. 

• MURSL will use the accuweather.com website to determine the heat index for the area of the contest/practice for both the 6 PM & 7:15 PM slots. The website will give them the air temperature as well as the RealFeel temperature (heat index).

 • If the Real Feel (heat index) temperature is 96 degrees (Fahrenheit) or more, the contest/practice will be canceled.
