The weather forecast for the Rochester area is indicating extreme heat conditions during the Metros Tournament. These conditions will be monitored, and event matches will be adjusted in consideration for the safety of players and guests.
Tournament matches on Friday and Saturday will be adjusted to play in twelve minute quarters. This will provide for a short water/cooling break and allow for unlimited substitutions to be made during the break. We expect that this cooling period should not exceed two minutes. There will be no stoppage time added to accommodate the cooling break. The referee shall use discretion to favor safety in balance of duration for the match. In addition, substitutions may be made by either team at any stoppage of play. We ask for your cooperation and to keep in mind the spirit of the game during these volatile conditions.
