Glenshire Elementary, Truckee El, ACMS all have walls.

Players should be practicing as much as possible either against a wall, against a bounceback, or with a partner.

***Update to Truckee Tribe Quality Policy****

***Update to Truckee Tribe Air Quality Policy****

After receiving feedback from members, and in order to align our club with other local area youth sports clubs, and with our league (HSLL), we have amended out Air Quality Policy to use a threshold of 125, down from 150.

We will continue to use the EPA site, AirNow Truckee

 Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe by 3pm.

AQI of 125 or above

UNHEALTHY: All practices are cancelled or moved inside if a location is available. Games will be rescheduled or cancelled. If the AQI is less than 150 and descending, a game may begin if the referee present believes the AQI will continue to drop and the game can be completed safely.

AQI is 100 - 124

Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups:

Practices will proceed, however, coaches should:

Send notice to their respective teams that the AQI is between 100 and 125, and that players sensitive to a higher AQI should not participate.

Continue to monitor the AQI and discontinue practice if the AQI reaches 125.

Monitor athletes for any signs of sensitivity to air pollution or smoke.

Limit and control running and conditioning

Increase the number of water and rest breaks

Limit or excuse those student-athletes that are members of the sensitive group

Check the AQI periodically to stay updated on changing conditions. If AQI reaches, 125 practice is cancelled or everyone must go inside.

Please review additional important information regarding Air Quality Index and monitoring from the Washoe County Health District.

AQI is less than 100

All activities are OK.

More info available at: https://hsll.org/rules/air-quality

Air Quality Policy

Tribe,

Our Air Quality Policy is posted on this website, under Tribe Club / Safety & Health / Emergency Action Plan. It is provided, below, for convenience:

Air Quality - An AQI in excess of 150 will cause all Tribe sanctioned outdoor practices and games to be canceled.  

AQI reading can be found here:  https://mobile.arb.ca.gov/breathewell/default.aspx?city=Truckee

Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe

 

Additionally, coaches will keep us posted on their assessment as practices approach. In all cases, we ultimately leave the decision of whether or not a child should participate to the discretion of the parent. Air quality can vary within Truckee, conditions are subject to change, and each player's circumstances are unique.

Let's hope for clear skies for many reasons.

Age Verification

If you have registered your child to play, please spend a few minutes and age verify though US Lacrosse
