FishHawk Youth Sports Association (FYSA) has installed a state of the art lightning detection system for the complex.  All of the sports programs contributed funds, and Newland Communities very generously matched those funds, dollar for dollar.   In order for the new system to be effective, the rules regarding its use must be carefully followed.   The maintenance building at the complex (located between the East soccer/football field) and the baseball field, has been equipped with a yellow light on top.   When the lightning detection system senses a threat, the yellow light will turn on and a very loud horn will sound for 15 seconds.   The yellow light will stay on until the "All Clear" has sounded - this is when the horn blasts for 5 seconds, 3 times in a row.  Before any activities on the field, visually confirm that the yellow light on top of the maintenance building is off.   If the light is off, you may proceed.   If the light is on (even if you missed the 15 second alarm), please STAY OFF the fields until the "All Clear" has sounded.  If you are on the fields and hear the 15 second alarm, please IMMEDIATELY exit the fields.   When leaving the fields, do not stand under the trees, pavilions, or building over-hangs.   You must wait in your cars, as this is the safest location.   The board rooms will be closed during this time.   PLEASE DO NOT EXIT THE COMPLEX UNLESS YOU ARE ADVISED TO DO SO BY YOUR COACH. The fields will remain closed until you hear the "All Clear."   After hearing the "All Clear," visually confirm that the yellow light on the maintenance building is off before proceeding back to the fields.
