Weather Issues

BAYS referees, town officials, and coaches should be aware of the Mass Youth Soccer weather policy and implement it when applicable. 

View this important safety policy at the Safer Soccer page and then scroll down to view the Weather Policy.

Please note specifically the guidelines regarding heat, cold weather, and lightning. 

Decisions regarding unplayable fields are left to the town authority until game time, and once a match begins, are left to the authority of the referee."

Should a match be terminated for weather-related issues see Policy on Terminated and Abandoned Matches for how the BAYS division director determines the outcome of the match.
