Team Shelter Safety Recommendations
Team Shelter Safety Recommendations:
Anchor or Secure Player Shelters
Because of wind, all shelters must be secured to the ground by anchors, chain stakes or duckbills; or they need to be bolted to a concrete base. Tell us how you will use your shelter and we can help you with your options for securing your shelters.
- Shelters must be properly anchored at all times.
- Do not use or store a shelter on a slope or hill.
- Check that all fastenings are tightened securely. Consistently check to ensure that no one has tampered with fasteners.
- Inspect the structural integrity of the shelters. Check for broken welds or parts. Do not use a shelter with broken parts.
- Do not climb on, or hang from, the framework of a shelter. This message should be repeatedly told to kids, coaches and parents.
- Shelters should only be moved by adults and by enough people. Use caution when moving shelters. Shelters should be re-anchored after each move.
How the shelters will be used, and the condition of the soil, will determine how anchors should be chosen. Please call us with any questions you have about choosing anchors or about safety.
