(19) WET WEATHER POLICY
Camps will run, even in wet conditions, so participants are advised to attend as normal.
The following general provisions will be made in the event of wet weather:
- Light drizzle will not stop the program. Rain periods may delay the program but will not stop it as Coordinators will rearrange the program to accommodate rain periods.
- Most balls are synthetic and will handle wet conditions. All leather balls will be put aside until the wet weather has cleared.
- Most centre wicket areas are synthetic and may be used during wet conditions. However, if turf is unusable due to the wet weather, Coordinators will move centre wicket areas to the side and make a modified game area.
- Coordinators will check that the bowlers landing areas and surrounds are not too slippery. Bowlers should also check their landing areas and surrounds before bowling, and if necessary, adapt their technique to the conditions.
- Internet radar screens are on line at the office so Coordinators will call for constant up dates and will make plans using all available information.
In the event of light rain or rain which is threatening (but not coming down):
- Coordinators will go straight into activities and spend as little time as possible on warm up and introduction.
- Coordinators will fit drinks/food breaks and head coaches talks into rain periods as per a cricket match.
- After rain breaks, Coordinators will get straight back into the normal or modified program.
In the event of heavy rain with no breaks in sight:
- Participants will be split into groups and will take part in a variety of coach’s discussions and presentations relating to bowling techniques, batting techniques, fielding techniques, match situations, and question and answer sessions.
- The schedules on subsequent days may be altered (for example, by shortening lunch breaks and drinks breaks) to ensure that all activities can be completed before the end of the Camp.
