The health and safety of our players and officials are of utmost importance. We recommend a 'common-sense' approach when dealing with extreme heat. Umpires and match-day coordinators should take action to cease or suspend play in any conditions that may be unsuitable or dangerous to players and officials. It is strongly recommended that players & officials adequately hydrate themselves in preparation to, during and after matches they are involved in. We suggest carrying a water bottle and filling it up regularly. We also strongly encourage players and officials to wear hats and apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30+.
