Policy on Air Quality and Practices & Games
Piedmont Soccer League recommends that coaches cancel all soccer practices outdoors when the local Air Quality Index (AQI) reaches 101 (AQI of “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups”). Sensitive groups include people with heart or lung disease, older adults, children and teenagers. Ultimately, it will be up to each parent to decide whether to attend a practice that is not cancelled and that player should not be punished if they do not attend.
If the AQI reaches 150 or higher (Air Quality Index of “Unhealthy for All Groups”) then all practices must be cancelled for the safety and welfare of PSC players and coaches. No teams may practice outdoors or participate in games when this level is reached.
