Heat Guidelines for PSC Practices

US Soccer’s heat guidelines provide information on how to practice safely in the heat+humidity using the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT). Piedmont is in the “Cat 1” region.

We will monitor the WBGT in Piedmont according to throughout the warm weather seasons. At least 1 hour prior to practice start times (starting 3pm for 4pm practice), we will use US Soccer’s guidelines to decide whether:

  • To cancel practice if the WBGT is going to be above 86 degrees by the start of practice
  • To shorten practice to 1 hour if the WBGT is going to be below 86 degrees but in the mid-80s. All practices will have 4 by 4 minute breaks within the hour.

With all practices this week, make sure to bring plenty of fluids, apply sunscreen at home, and wear a hat too if you like. Take breaks often.
