How to Be Prepared for Cold Weather

It's important to be aware of the dangers of cold weather and be prepared to delay or cancel games if the weather conditions are poor enough to increase the risk of injury.
 
Freezing rain, hail, snow, sleet or heavy rain can cause field conditions to deteriorate rapidly. Check field conditions before and during games to ensure that they don't become hazardous for players.  

Also, during the cold weather games, players should be allowed to wear appropriate and safe clothing including extra garments under the jersey and shorts, knit hats and gloves, etc., to protect against cold and windy weather conditions.
 
It's important that players are prepared for the cold because hypothermia can occur long before the temperatures fall below freezing.
