For everyone who is not familiar with or have forgotten the heat regulations of the club and/or associations, then please use the following guides –
Seniors – Saturday (game-day) – If the day’s forecast for Adelaide on ABC Local Radio (891 AM) at 9:00am Saturday is 40 Degrees Celsius or above, then play is called off for that day. You do not have to turn up to your ground in this case. Unless there are exceptional circumstances communicated to you, then play is still scheduled for any temperature below this.
Seniors – Tuesday/Thursday (training) – Training will only be cancelled with due consideration to a player’s health. Any cancellation of training will be communicated to you through an SMS and/or email on the day.
Juniors – Sunday (game-day) – If the day’s forecast for AdelaideÂ on ABC Local Radio (891 AM) at 8:00am Sunday is 38 Degrees Celsius or above, then play is called off for that day. You do not have to turn up to your ground in this case. Unless there are other circumstances communicated to you, then play is still scheduled for any temperature below this.
Juniors – Thursday/Friday (training) – If the day’s forecast for Adelaide at 9:00am on your training day is 38 Degrees Celsius or above on the Bureau of Meteorology’s website, then training is cancelled for that day. You do not have to turn up to Weymouth Oval if such is the case, and an SMS will be sent out accordingly. For temperatures between 35 and 37 Degrees Celsius, then due consideration will be given to cancelling training (e.g. length of heatwave, timing of heat etc.), but please assume that training is still on unless otherwise notified.
Juniors – Milo in2CRICKET (Friday) and Under 9’s (Monday) – If the Adelaide forecast is 38 degrees Celsius or above in that day’s Advertiser, then both programs are called off for that week. Due consideration will also be given for heatwave conditions for the Milo in2CRICKET program.
For both situations that require listening to the news on ABC Local Radio (891 AM), then please be aware that they source their information from the Bureau of Meteorology. This information is updated at 6:00am on the same day and hence, very rarely does it change from this time to the next update at about 11:30am. Therefore, whilst it is a requirement to listen to the radio at the appropriate time, using the Bureau’s information from their website will often suffice as an accurate guide as well.
No matter how wet it is, players are required to assemble as per usual at the ground. The captains (and umpire if applicable) will determine what the course of action will be.
