Special RBYSL Announcement Concerning Ongoing Air Quality Issues and Practices and Games

With the ongoing wildfire activity in the Northern California, Red Bluff will experience on and off periods of smoke and particulate matter as a result. At times, these conditions WILL effect the practices and games of our teams.

The Red Bluff Youth Soccer League STRONGLY recommends that coaches cancel all soccer practices outdoors when the Red Bluff 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 RBYSL players and coaches. No teams may practice outdoors or participate in games when this level is reached.

Note: This policy is subject to change in order to reflect any Air Quality Index policy that the District 9 board of directors or Cal North CYSA decides to adopt.

You can check the air quality:
