IF LIGHTNING IS SEEN during soccer practice or a soccer game, all coaches, managers, players, parents, staff and referees should seek shelter in a vehicle such as a car, truck or a van with the windows completely shut for THIRTY-minutes.
Referees will monitor conditions during this time. The THIRTY-minute watch is to be restarted with every newly occurring lightning strike. The Referee decides if a game should be CANCELLED.
