Rain and Lighting Policy for Manatee PAL Fields

We practice in the rain; however, practice and games will be suspended in the event of lightning. Our home field has a lightning meter on at all times to monitor the situation.

If lightning is detected within ten miles, play will be suspended, and all players, parents and participants will be instructed to take shelter. All parents, fans, and other spectators will be instructed to evacuate the facility and seek shelter in their cars.

The “all clear” will be given 30 minutes after the last lightning strike within the ten-mile range.
