Air Quality Policy

1) There are a lot of different websites (and they report different numbers) but I use the IQ Air website or app or purpleair.com to monitor air quality index (AQI). 

Daily AQI ColorLevels of ConcernValues of IndexDescription of Air Quality
GreenGood0 to 50Air quality is satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
YellowModerate51 to 100Air quality is acceptable. However, there may be a risk for some people, particularly those who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
OrangeUnhealthy for Sensitive Groups101 to 150Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is less likely to be affected.
RedUnhealthy151 to 200Some members of the general public may experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
PurpleVery Unhealthy201 to 300Health alert: The risk of health effects is increased for everyone.
MaroonHazardous301 and higherHealth warning of emergency conditions: everyone is more likely to be affected.

2) Notify your team at least 4 hours before the practice times.  All practices and games should be canceled if the AQI is at 151 or higher (Red or higher).  If the AQI is between 101-150 (orange), you may have a light practice but sensitive individuals should sit out.  Games may or may not be canceled if the AQI is in the orange range (to be determined by the league).

Any questions, please email me.
