Glengarry Soccer League publishes extreme heat game-cancellation policy

sean Jul 4, 2018 - 12:47pm

Today, the Glengarry Soccer League announced its extreme heat policy, as a guideline to when scheduled youth and adult soccer games will be postponed and/or cancelled.

Monday (July 2) saw all matches scrubbed due to the hot, humid weather conditions, with the intention of these games all being rescheduled to play on Sunday (Jule 8). See this week's edition of The Glengarry News for more details.

Last evening, conditions moderated somewhat, allowing scheduled games to proceed.

Here are the GSL extreme heat guidelines: 

The Glengarry Soccer League will reschedule games league-wide for U10 and older, if the humidex for Alexandria, according to Environment Canada (, is 35 degrees or higher during game time.

The league will post / e-mail by 5 p.m. in regards to the 6:30 p.m. / 7 p.m. kick-offs, if the projection is 35 degrees or higher for 7 p.m.

The league will post / e-mail by 7 p.m. in regards to the 8:30 p.m. kick-offs, if the projection is 35 degrees or higher for 9 p.m.

The league may make the call to reschedule games earlier in the day if the humidex is going to be significantly higher than 35 degrees.

For games that start on the half hour, we will use the next available projected rating to determine if the game is on. For example, a 6:30 p.m. kick-off time will use the 7 p.m. projected humidex rating to determine whether the game will or will not be played.

U8 games will cancelled and not rescheduled, as there are no official standings or playoffs in the U8 divisions.

U6 will be left to the discretion of the area reps as to what temperature they would like to cancel their sessions at and can be done prior to 5 p.m.

Games that are to be rescheduled will be moved to the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of the week of cancellations. If teams are unable to play on the rescheduled date, the coach is asked to let the GSL know ASAP that they will have to unfortunately forfeit.

The Glengarry Soccer League would like to thank you for your patience and consideration on this issue. We want to remind our players and officials to keep well-hydrated on game days. If you feel that it is unsafe for your child to play, please notify your child's coach; the GSL will leave that up to the parents' discretion.
