GKGSC looks at the “feels like” temperature when evaluating conditions, as things like Wind Chill and Humidity can play a large factor in Cold Weather Play. Players are more susceptible to injury in cold weather, particularly muscular injury.
< 50°F - GKGSC recommends wearing extra protections and layered clothing:
- Long Sleeve Shirts
- Long Athletic Pants
- Extra Socks
- Any Jackets and Sweatshirts (non-hooded) must be worn underneath Jerseys as to make the player’s number visible
- Hooded Sweatshirts, Scarves, or any other loose clothing is prohibited as they create a potential hazard to the player
< 20°F - GKGSC will cancel outdoor practices and games for anything that feels like 20° or lower
