SIRC Newsletter -Weather

Check out the latest SIRC Newsletter on Weather!

The summer months are full of unpredictable weather conditions, with everything from lightning to extreme heat. Partner the extreme weather conditions with poor air quality and you are facing months of potentially dangerous situations not only for your health but in some cases your life. Taking the correct safety precautions including observing the 30-30 Rule, keeping hydrated and exercising at the right time of day, will allow you to stay active and safe all summer long!

Sport organizations/clubs are encouraged to read the article regarding Lightning and the Law: Lessons from a Soccer Game since it describes a situation last summer involving a coach, referee and U11 girls soccer team in Toronto. We are fortunate to have the legal counsel involved in the case share their story with us and highlight the lightning rule the Toronto Soccer Association has included to encourage the safety of its participants.
