With temperatures beginning to drop late into this fall season, the decision on whether or not to postpone games is a local-level decision.
To assist with that decision, the CHSAA staff, in conjunction with the Sports Medicine Committee, is sending out the following reminder to schools about their cold weather recommendations.
|Cold Weather Recommendations|
|Wind Chill Temp.||Modifications|
|30° & above||Outside participation allowed with appropriate clothing|
|20°-29°||Mandate additional protective clothing (hat, gloves). Provide re-warming facilities.|
|10°-19°||Outside participation limited to 45 minutes. All participants must have appropriate clothing. Provide re-warming facilities.|
|9° or below||Termination of all outside activities.|
Again, any decision on whether or not to play a game is a local-level decision, and both schools should work in tandem to come to an agreement.
Football has a rule limiting players to seven quarters in a week, and six quarters in three days. A week is defined as Thursday to Wednesday for the purposes of that rule.
