The Denver Shootout Weather Policy 2012

Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Weather Policy
In the case of certain weather conditions, the fields at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park may not be used. The fields will immediately close if standing water is visible on the fields, there is frost or snow on the fields, or if the ground is severely saturated from heavy rain. Severe weather such as thunderstorms and tornadoes may cause the complex to shut down as well.

At Dick's Sporting Goods Park we monitor the weather 24 hours a day and use the following policy: Fields will be evacuated if lightning is detected within 6 miles of the Park. In the event that fields need to be evacuated, staff will sound short blasts of an air horn. At this point we need to have everyone clear the fields as quickly as possible.

The safest location for people to go is in a hard-topped car with the windows up. In the absence of a vehicle, Park Staff will direct people to a safe location. The fields will remain closed until the lightning has cleared the 6 mile radius. Field Staff will indicate the All-Clear with a long continuous blast of an air horn. KSE will ultimately make the decision to continue, postpone or cancel the day's events.

Rescheduled games are contingent on the availability of fields and the priority of the given event. In any such event, games and tournaments hold priority over practices when rescheduled.

Please first direct any questions regarding weather and field conditions to the facility weather hotline at (303) 727-3333. Staff will update the hotline in a timely matter if/when changes are made regarding reservations taking place at the fields on any given day.

3d Lacrosse Weather Contingency Plan

Rain delays:

*If Dick’s Sporting Goods Park has not closed their fields:

3 hours or less - when it is clear to play we will pick up where we left off with the game schedule.

Example: If it rains from 1-4 pm the 1 pm games will start at 3 pm and everything will be pushed back 3 hours.

More than 3 hours - when it is clear to play we will pick up play by using an accelerated game schedule. Games will be played with a 30 minute running clock with no warm up time or half time. Games will start on every hour and half hour. The remainder of the games for that day will continue on using that type of game format.

*If Dick’s Sporting Goods Park has closed their fields:

We will direct teams to their designated off site fields and pick up with the tournament schedule.
