Playing in the Heat

Softball is a summer sport and it is therefore inevitable some games will be scheduled for play during extreme heat conditions.

High intensity exercise in a hot environment, with associated fluid loss and elevated body temperature, can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Each association/league is permitted to implement an extreme weather policy or work on a case by case basis.

The following information is a series of recommendations for teams to take when playing/practicing in extreme heat conditions and is based on the Hot Weather Guidelines implemented by Softball Australia.

Recommended Preventative Strategies:

Hydration
Timing of games and training
Player rest and rotation
Clothing

Stay safe, Stay Hydrated, and Have Fun!
