Heat & Humidity Policy

We are not governed by GHSA, however, we adhere to the following GHSA policy standards for Heat and Humidity:

 

2.67b - A Scientifically-approved instrument that measures the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) must be utilized at each practice to ensure that the written policy is being followed properly. WBGT readings should be taken every hour, beginning 30 minutes before the beginning of practice.


WBGT reading:


Under 82.0

Normal Activities - Provide at least three separate rest breaks each hour with a minimum duration of 3 minutes each during the workout.


82.0 - 86.9

Use discretion for intense or prolonged exercise; watch at-risk players carefully. Provide at least three separate rest breaks each hour with a minimum duration of 4 minutes each.


87.0 - 89.9

Maximum practice time is 2 hours. For Football: Players are restricted to helmets, shoulder pads, and shorts during practice, and all protective equipment must be removed during conditioning activities. If the WBGT rises to this level DURING practice, players may continue to work out wearing football pants without changing to shorts. For All Sports: There must be 20 minutes of rest breaks distributed throughout the hour of practice.


90.0 - 92.0

Maximum practice time is 1 hour. For Football: no protective equipment may be worn during practice, and there may be no condition activities. For All Sports: There must be 20 minutes of rest breaks distributed throughout the hour of practice.
