We have been working very hard on maximising our programming for all players across the club to provide them with as many opportunities to stay in contact with the ball as possible over the winter period.

Outdoor Training

The last day of Fall outdoor season will be the last Thursday of October unless YOUR COACH extends practices.

The Winter schedule runs from November 13 to February 28th (inclusive)

This schedule will then change after February 28th, and we will communicate these changes nearer the time.

Weather Policy

Here is the policy which is subject to change:

There will be a low temperature cut off point of around 26 degrees.

Below this temperature practice may be cancelled.

The decision will be taken around midday and will be based on the projected temperture at 5pm.

The club will, when appropriate, consider other weather conditions such as sleet, snow, high winds and rain and, when appropriate, override the temperature cut off for older teams.

There will be times when a team needs to practice for an important event, such as a college showcase, and may have their team practice when the temperature is a touch lower than the cut off point.

There may also be times when the Age Group DOCs of the younger age groups feel it is appropriate to cancel training for the comfort of their younger players based on additional weather and these coaches will directly contact the teams.

The club simply wants the players training as much as possible to ensure their continued development over the Winter period and has to juggle and balance this with their on-field comfort.

This is not a science, so not everyone will be happy, but we feel this is the best track to continue on.

Weather Bug, is the app being used to determine temperatures.

We try to make the call as early as possible to allow parents and players to plan their evening.

If, in the intervening time period, there are minor changes in weather, then this does not necessarily mean that practice will be cancelled last minute.

If significant weather changes happen, then parents will be notified as soon as the decision has been made.

Parents will be made aware before coaches, so please refrain from contacting the coach for information on this matter.

The decision of whether or not to travel to and from training is down to the family and no responsibility or liability can be taken by CUSA when driving or moving around parking lots in less than idea conditions.
