Inclement Weather Policy

Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather conditions, the tournament director reserves the right to:

  • Reduce the game times in order to catch up with the schedule or cancel games as needed
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives or to preserve field conditions.
  • Reschedule games, if possible.
  • Convert tournament to a “Festival” format without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of the teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.
  • Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the Aloha Tournaments website. However, weather conditions can change rapidly, and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable.

If thunder or lightning is observed at any location, play will be suspended immediately, and players and fans will be required to leave the field. Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or sight of lightning is observed.  If a game is in progress:

  • The period will end immediately.
  • If a game is in the second half of running time period the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded.
  • If a game is in the first half of running time when play resumes it will be the start of the second half of the running time period.
  • Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. If the start of the second half of the suspended game delays the onset of the subsequent game the following actions will occur:
  • The suspended game will play a 20 minute running time second half.

Subsequent games will begin immediately after the preceding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game). These games will consist of one 25 minute running time period until games are back on schedule.  Teams will have one 30 second timeout per game not to be used in the last two minutes of the  game (the clock will not stop during these timeouts).

  • Once games are back on schedule, they will revert back to  25 minute running time periods.
  • We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game, but we will not jeopardize the safety of any player.
  • All games canceled due to weather will be considered a 4 – 2 win for both teams.
