What criteria do you use to determine if it is safe to be out on the field when there is thunder and lightning?

We use the 30-30 Lightning Rule to determine the threat of lightning in our area.

Count seconds between seeing lightning and hearing thunder.  If this is less than 30 seconds clear the field and seek shelter immediately.  Lightning is a potential threat.

Wait 30 minutes before leaving shelter after the last lightning flash followed by thunder within 30 seconds or less.  Half of all lightning deaths occur after a storm has passed.  Stay in a safe area until you are sure the threat has passed.

Example:  Lightning strikes at 5:25 p.m. and is followed by thunder after 20 seconds: GAME DELAYED until 5:55 p.m.

Lightning strikes AGAIN at 5:35 p.m. followed by thunder after 40 seconds: GAME DELAY MAINTAINED until 5:55 p.m.

Lightning strikes at 5:45 p.m. followed by thunder after 25 seconds: NEW GAME DELAY until 6:15 p.m.

*Coaches and referees may choose to keep delaying games until there is no longer a threat of lightning in our area OR plan to reschedule if the storm appears to be of long duration, the game delays will affect night visibility or the game delays will affect later scheduled games.
