Heat Policy

A common policy is the Heat Policy, which states there will be no physical training for any junior grade (U10-U18) if the temperature is forecast to be 38 degrees or above in the Adelaide Advertiser on the morning of the scheduled training. The exception is if the training is in an air-conditioned court/venue and the air-conditioning is turned on. Alternates to physical indoor training such as a whiteboard/theory session may be substituted.
