BRSC HEAT ADVISORY PRECAUTIONS
Current weather forecasts indicate that the Baton Rouge area will continue to be under a Heat Advisory through at least this weekend (Aug. 14 through Aug. 20). Please see the precautions that we are taking while we are under the Heat Advisory.
Game Day Protocol
- There will be no games or practices scheduled at the 1 pm or 3 pm time slots on Saturday or Sunday at any BRSC campus (Burbank, Independence, Central or Zachary).
- NO teams will be scheduled to play back-to-back games (or two games in one day). This also goes for players- they may only play one game in a day during the Heat Advisory.
- Expect multiple water breaks in each half.
Adjusted Practice Times
- Session 1: 5:30 pm-6:45 pm; Session 2: 6:45 pm-8:00 pm.
- We have multiple water refill stations for players to refill water bottles.
- Teams are encouraged to set up tents for shade and water breaks.
- Players may only practice once per day (no back-to-back practices).
Private Sessions, High School Tryouts, etc.
- No Soccer activities will be permitted prior to 5:30 pm at any BRSC Campus. This includes Private Sessions or High School Tryouts.
- Players should not participate in multiple training sessions per day. ie Players should not participate in any non-sanctioned BRSC soccer activities and official club practices on the same day (limit soccer daily soccer activities to a maximum of 90 minutes per day.)
We will advise you as soon as the Heat Advisory lifts and we are able to return to regular programming. We would rather be proactive in helping provide the safest policies and procedures that we can while navigating this unprecedented heat wave.
Baton Rouge, LA – The decision to postpone the BRSC Box to Box 5K/1-Mile Fun Run from its original frigid, rain-soaked day proved to be the best decision as all race participants were rewarded with perfect running weather.
The race day began at 9 am with some of the event’s youngest runners taking on the one-mile challenge. C. Tucker was the top finisher of the run finishing with an impressive 6:08.2 chip time. The top female 1-miler, I. Tsao finished second with a 6:38.9 chip time.
Immediately following the 1-mile participants lined up for the 5K at 9:30. The best time of the day went to thirteen-year-old Bennett Coney with an 18:38.4 chip time. Lauren Bradford LATDP Elite 08 Girls Academy player finished with the best women’s overall time for the second year in a row with a 21:07.4 chip time
