A Very Serious Warning And Word To The Wise

Due to the forecasted excessive heat and humidity and for the safety and well-being of all student athletes, the Office of Catholic Education (OCE) has asked the 17 Philadelphia Archdiocesan High schools to ensure that no practices or games start between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday (Sept. 9-10) for all outdoor athletics.

OCE has also advised all schools to take every precaution to ensure that the student-athletes, coaches and game officials are properly hydrated throughout all games or practices, and review with on-site game management personnel any emergency procedures in the event of lightning.
