Spare-The-Air Days/Excessive Heat
Spare-The-Air Days. On days when the air quality is bad due to smoke or air pollution, you should check the Sacramento Regional Air Quality District website (www.sparetheair.com) to determine if holding practice is appropriate. A copy of the air quality scale is incorporated as Appendix E.
If the Air Quality Index is between 101 to 150 range, coaches are encouraged to cancel practice, or at least hold a light workout focusing on elements that do not include heavy exertion, such as set plays. If the Air Quality Index exceeds 150 coaches should cancel practice.
Excessive Heat: If the temperature is greater than 100 degrees, you should dial back your practice intensity and take more water breaks. Consider working on elements that do not require as much running, such as free kicks, corner kicks, penalty kicks, etc. If the temperature exceeds 105 degrees, you should cancel practice.
Please remember that your players are just kids, and exposing them to a 2-hour practice when the air is significantly polluted or if it’s 105 degrees out is doing more harm than good. Parents are encouraged to keep their children home if they are concerned that attending a practice or game is detrimental to their child’s health.
