Heat Index Lookup

Heat illness in athletes is a serious situation, and if not handled properly can have catastrophic consequences. Every school should have a written policy in place for handling athletic participation in extreme heat/humidity environmental conditions. This includes all athletes exposed to these environmental conditions –not just football! Incorporating the KSHSAA guidelines into your policy will help ensure your athletes have an opportunity to train safely and effectively in situations of extreme heat/humidity.
