20 Appendix A LDYSL LIGHTNING AND SEVERE WEATHER POLICY The safety of players, coaches, referees, management and spectators is a primary concern in any weather event which occurs during any matches sanctioned by the LDYSL. Referees are expected to act responsibly when dealing with severe weather during matches they officiate. It must be clearly understood the referee has final say regarding the delay or restart of a match due to weather. Teams will be directed to take proper shelter and must remain at the venue until the referee restarts the game or declares a postponement. Failure to adhere to the referee s directions during severe weather will result in forfeiture of the game by the team failing to follow the referee s ruling. The existence of blue sky and absence of rain are not protection from severe weather as lightning can and does strike as far as sixteen (16) kilometers away from the rain shaft (i.e. it does not have to be raining for lightning to strike). Thunder always accompanies lightning, even though its audible range can be diminished due to background noise in the immediate environment and its distance from the observer. Generally, the lightning threat diminishes with time after the last sound of thunder, but may persist for thirty (30) minutes or more. 30/30 Rule When lightning is detected, the distance to the lightning can be determined by counting the time between the flash and the first sound of the thunder and dividing this time by five (5). When lightning is seen, count the time until thunder is heard. If this time is thirty (30) seconds or less, seek proper shelter. Wait thirty (30) minutes or more after hearing the last thunder before leaving the shelter. Proper Shelter Proper shelter is a safe structure or location. A safe structure is any building normally occupied or frequently used by people (i.e. a building with plumbing and/or electrical wiring that acts to electrically ground the structure). Avoid using shower facilities as a safe structure, whether stand alone or in a building. In the absence of a sturdy, frequently used building, any vehicle with a hard metal roof (not a convertible or golf cart) and rolled-up windows can provide a measure of safety and is definitely better than remaining outdoors. If unable to reach safe shelter, stay away from the tallest trees or objects such as light poles or flag poles, metal objects, individual trees, standing pools of water and open fields. Avoid being the highest object in a field. Do not take shelter under a single, tall tree. Minimize contact with the ground. For additional information refer to the CSA Lightning Safety/Severe Weather Policy which can be found on the OSA or CSA websites. Additional information can also be found on the following website:

All opposing players must be a minimum of five meters from the ball. B.20 A goal cannot be scored directly from a kick off, corner kick, or goal kick.

B.23 A referee may assess a two minute penalty for an offence, a caution (yellow) card or both. If in the opinion of the referee, the offence is serious and within the penalty area, a penalty kick PLUS a two or five minute penalty may be awarded. Penalty Assessments: Referee discretion 2 minutes Caution (yellow) 2 minutes Ejection (second yellow) 5 minutes Ejection (red) 5 minutes
23 B.22 If a team has two players serving time penalties and another player on the same team receives a time penalty, that player must go into the penalty box. The team must substitute players not serving time penalties to maintain the minimum number. The time penalty of the third player will not commence until the time penalty of the first player has expired. B.25 In the case that an ejection causes a team to have less than the minimum required players on the field, the penalized team will forfeit the game and the game result will be recorded as 3-0 in favor of the opposing team. B.26 Another player on the field may serve a time penalty for a goalkeeper. Appendix C CLUB CONTACT RESPONSIBILITIES As we grow as an organization, so does the role of Club Contact.
