WET WEATHER PROCEDURES

Training 

Diggers FC Wet Weather Policy, for training, is as follows:

Training for ALL junior teams (U6-U16) will be cancelled when there is a Heavy Storm &/or Constant Lightning during training, flooding or constant soaking rain. A light shower will NOT cause cancellation. Coaching staff and social media will be notified, no later than 1 hour prior to training. Please check our Facebook page first ( Diggers Football Club ), before contacting coaching staff. Senior training will be at the discretion of the senior coaching staff.

Game Days
FQWB control the grounds that we play on. Their ground staff, along with the head of referees, will make a decision, when there is adverse weather conditions that deem the fields unsafe to play on. FQWB will also use their website to inform all members of field closures. Please go to https://fqwidebay.com/weather-updates/. Diggers Facebook page will also advertise, once informed by FQWB. If there is NO cancellation, on FQWB website, games are on. Any changes during game day will be decided on, by the match officials, at the venue.
