There is a heat advisory in affect for Glendale beginning Sunday, June 13th and ending Friday, June 18th. Afternoon temps are expected to be 108° F to 118° F. The City of Glendale, like many other surrounding cities, will not continue with outdoor activities/programs when the temperature is 105° F or higher. We are currently using the Heat Index Chart ( as the standard. All games and practices will be cancelled this week for the safety of the children and adults involved.

For upcoming weeks, please call the Sports Information and Weather Hotline at 1-623-930-6314 for updates. We will determine the official temperature, and make a decision on games/practices on a daily basis. Decisions on game times will be made at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled game time, when possible.

Safety is our top priority. Please make sure your child is prepared with water bottles. In an effort to help out, we have stocked water at the staff building at Sahuaro Ranch Complex. Please feel free to ask staff for water if it is needed. We want to make sure these kids are hydrated and safe.
