The primary goal of all WWPSA programs is to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of the participants. As such, we will strictly enforce our Inclement Weather Policy:
In the event that anyone participating in a WWPSA or Surf Mercer program, including but not limited to players, coaches, volunteers or paid trainers, hears thunder or sees lightning, all activity relating to the program must immediately stop and all participants must leave the field and seek shelter for a period of at least 30 minutes after the thunder or lightning was last detected.
If, while waiting due to inclement weather, another lightning strike is seen or thunder is heard, the 30-minute mandatory waiting period must start again.
In the event that inclement weather forces the cancellation of WWPSA programs, a club-wide email will be sent to all members with clear instructions as to the affected programs. The email notification will be sent according to the following schedule:
- Weekdays: no later than 3:30pm
- Weekends: no later than 8am
If you NO NOT receive an email from WWPSA, then that means that all activities are ON AS SCHEDULED that day.
