TSSAA Heat Policy
No activities will be allowed when the heat index at the location of the activity is in excess of 104 degrees. The heat index should be checked every 30 minutes if the heat index is 95 degrees or greater to monitor for increased heat index.
This includes practices and contests at any level (HS, MS, JV etc…) and at any location (indoor or outdoor). Schools are required to measure the heat index at the location of its activities associated with sanctioned sports. Schools will need to have the capability to measure heat index at the site(s) where activities take place. Report non-compliant team(s) to the SCIAA Office. Heat index apps can be used when physical heat index monitors are not available.
TSSAA Heat Policy – Modifications for Golf Competitions and Practice 95°-104° Players should have immediate access to water regardless of their location on the course. Water bottles should be kept with players at all times. Pace of play should be so that players are resting at least one minute for every three minutes that they are walking. The time taken between shots and the transition time on the tee-box between holes can be considered resting time.
Anytime lightning is determined to be in the area (See it, Flee it; Hear it, clear it) of practice/competition site, activity must be suspended for at least 30 minutes after the last lightning strike. If lightning strikes within the 30 minute time frame, restart the count each time until it has been determined that the activity will be rescheduled. Please seek a safe shelter in times of inclement weather. It is the team’s responsibility to monitor the weather during athletic contests to determine what adjustments; if any need to be made in times of inclement weather. Report non-compliant team(s) to the SCIAA Office.
SCIAA GOLF INFORMATION
Schools may have student-athletes compete on a team or as an individual. Boy’s teams must consist of 4 or 5 players, with the top four scores counting toward the team’s total. Girl’s teams must consist of 2 or 3 players, with the top two scores counting toward the team’s total.
The SCIAA does not schedule regular season golf matches for schools . Each school participating in golf will be responsible for scheduling your own matches and contacting the golf centers to reserve time. Participating schools will determine start times. You must schedule a minimum of 6 golf matches. Fines will be assessed for forfeits.
All schools must have a full-time Coach or a full-time faculty member of the participating school present at all times during the match, if not golfers will not be allowed to participate. Coaches meeting should be held prior to competition. The home team is responsible for conducting the meeting. At your coaches meeting, please assign an adult group monitor. Group monitors will be responsible for managing the speed of play, will act as a backup scorer for players, will go over scores prior to next tee and resolve issues. Ideally, no one should be assigned to a group where his/her school is participating. Each player is responsible for keeping another’s player’s card.
All regular scheduled matches will consist of 9 holes. If you do not complete 9 holes, LG Division will double par and SM Division will double par the rest of the holes for scoring purposes.
Boys will play from the white tees or forward men’s tees. Girls will play from the red tees. A stroke limit of double par will be enforced on each hole. Once a player reaches the maximum number on a hole, they are to pick up their ball and proceed to the next hole. NO CADDIES ALLOWED, AT ANY TIME!!!
