Hot Weather Practice and Competition Guidelines

 

On very hot days, either during the fall or spring Sports Medicine will use a Wet Bulb Globe Test to determine the safety of practicing outside. 

A Wet Bulb Globe Test (WBGT) is a tool that takes into account the ambient temperature, relative humidity, air motion, and amount of radiant heat from the sun.
