Following @IBCRec on Twitter is the best way to stay up-to-date on rain-out alerts for the IBC Rec ministry. You may also call the rainout line. Typically, we do allow activities to continue in the rain. If our Thorguard Lightning Detection System does predict lightning in the area or unsafe weather conditions, we will cancel practice and update the rainout line. Please call the line for the most current updates: 813-264-8759.
For practices, decisions as to playing conditions will be made at 4:00 p.m.
For game days, cancellation decisions will be made by 7:30 a.m. or as soon as possible. Coaches will be contacted to communicate any cancellation of games. A sign will be posted at the gate to the fields and information will be updated on the info line and on the website and Twitter.
Storm and Lightning Policy (for games and practices)
We have a ThorGuard Lightning Prediction System that gives us an 8-20 minute warning before lightning will strike near our property. If lightning is predicted, the ThorGuard will sound one horn blast indicating that all activities are on hold until the all clear signal has been given and it is safe to return to activity. Please go directly to your car when the horn sounds. The all clear signal will be indicated by three horn blasts and all activities will resume.
