The PSAL has canceled all practices citywide today, Tuesday Sept 2, in all sports due to poor air quality as measured by the government's Air Quality Index (AQI).
Even when practices are held in hot, humid, or high AQI conditions, activities are modified so that athletes can safely exercise. Modifications may include shortened practice, lighter demands, longer rest periods, shaded locations, and access to extra water.
Regardless of the workout, each athlete is free to stop and rest, or reduce their effort level, at any time without penalty. Athletes who are feeling dizzy, suddenly weak, or short of breath are asked to stop immediately and speak to the coach without delay. Your safety is of paramount concern.
