Temperatures are predicted to be 108° and the heat index in excess of 110°.
We regret this decision, however in light of this new forecast we felt the risk to players would not be worth the benefit of playing.
Per North Texas tournament rules and our Puma cup rules, we will be refunding teams that have paid.
Per our rules:
"If the tournament is canceled due to inclement weather prior to completion of a team’s first scheduled game, a maximum of 50% of the entry fee will be retained by the tournament to cover start-up costs of the tournament. "

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the elderly, as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed vehicle, even for a short time, as temperatures can quickly rise to life threatening levels. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency - call 911.
