Weather Updates & Policies


IN ORDER TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR CLUB MEMBERS, DURING SEVERE WEATHER THREATS WE WILL USE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:

From Lightning:

  • All activities will not start or will be suspended immediately at Lone Elm Soccer Complex when a Thunderstorm or Tornado Warning has been issued for the area surrounding the fields.
  • When there is the occurrence of lightning within 0-10 miles of Lone Elm Soccer Complex, immediately direct everyone off the fields and into their vehicles.
  • When there is the occurrence of lightning within 10-20 miles of Lone Elm Soccer Complex, continue to monitor the weather conditions with the consideration of postponement of activities if necessary.
  • When there is the occurrence of lightning within 20-30 miles of Lone Elm Soccer Complex, will begin to monitor the weather conditions for visible lightning or thunderstorm indicators.
  • Kansas Rush Soccer Club’s thunder/lightning response guidelines dictate there will be a mandatory 20-minute waiting period when lightning of any kind has occurred with 10 miles of the event before activities will continue.  (i.e.  if thunder/lightning occurs at 5:00 and it is clear until thunder/lightning occurs again at 5:15, participants have to stay in their vehicles until 5:35).
  • A Kansas Rush staff member on site at Lone Elm has access to the WeatherBug’s Spark Lightning detection radar which indicates all lightning strikes in the area and provides the distance of the closest strike.
  • The information obtained from any and all weather device will be used in conjunction with the local weather forecast, immediate sky observations, and good common sense when determining to postpone or cancel an event.

Upon postponement – it is the responsibility of parent(s) and adult(s) to have all players/children remain in the vehicles.  
DO NOT ALLOW KIDS TO ROAM OUT IN THE PARKING LOT AREA OR ON THE FIELDS.

From Extreme Temperatures:

Heat Guidelines

  • 94 and below (heat index) .  All team activities on as scheduled.
  • 95-105 degrees (heat index): Training sessions to be altered/limited.  More frequent water/cooling breaks (every 15-20 minutes).  
  • 106+ degrees (heat index): No activities will start or continue.

Cold Guidelines

  • We will not conduct any outdoor activities when the temperature and wind speed create a wind chill temperature at or below 24°F.

For all guidelines we will use the government national weather service - http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=38.881397549000496&lon=-94.81912951399966#.V6OgFLgrKUk.

To Preserve the Integrity of Our Fields:

  • We may suspend outdoor activities on the fields at the Lone Elm Soccer Complex when it is raining hard.
  • We will not start any outdoor activities when the fields are very wet (even after rain has stopped).
  • Kansas Rush and the City of Olathe evaluate field conditions after heavy or prolonged periods of rain.  If fields are deemed too be to wet, we will communicate these details through normal channels.
