Heat

Caulfield Little Athletics recognises that little athletics can be a strenuous exercise and children are particularly susceptible to heat stress as their ability to regulate body heat is poorly developed compared to adults.

As such CLAC is committed to the health and wellbeing of all participants including volunteers and will make this a priority when considering decisions on continuation during periods of extreme weather.

CLAC will utilise the guidelines as published by Sport Medicine Australia which specifies that the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) index should be used to determine if an event should be cancelled or postponed.

On this basis, all running events at competition or training will be cancelled when the WBGT is 28°C or higher, and we will cancel all competition and training when the WBGT is 30°C or higher.
