NorCal Guidance on AQI

Air Quality Index (AQI) Guidance

A reminder that the AQI guidance below should be used when deciding whether or not to cancel NorCal games. Clubs are asked to please wait until the day of the game before canceling, if possible, due to the nature of air quality readings, as they can change quickly. Please make every effort to collaboratively reschedule any games that need to be canceled, so that the kids can still play the game during the season.

  • 0-100: Games should be played
  • 100-150: Game can be rescheduled – decision to be made by the clubs/teams involved. Both teams need to agree to playing the game.
  • 150+: Game should be canceled and rescheduled
