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.
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.
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.
