Smoke & Air Quality Index

Menifee Pony always considers safety when deciding whether or not to reschedule or cancel games. Extreme weather can possibly cause us to cancel games, as can conditions like heavy smoke from forest fires.

Below is the information related to possible rescheduling due to poor air quality conditions. We use the Air Quality Index (AQI), which is the EPA's index for reporting air quality. 

AQI INDEX: 0-50 (green - good)
Air quality is satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.

AQI INDEX: 51-100 (yellow - moderate)
Air quality is acceptable. However, there may be a risk for some people, particularly those who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.

AQI INDEX: 101-150 (orange - unhealthy for sensitive groups)
Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is less likely to be affected.  It's okay to be outside for practices but take more breaks and do less intense activities.  Watch for symptoms, take action as needed.  People with asthma should follow their asthma action plans and keep their quick-relief medicine handy.  Practices are at the discretion of the coaches and the parents.  The possibility of canceling games may be considered by the league.  

AQI INDEX: 151+ (red & beyond - unhealthy)
Unhealthy for the general public. Members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects. Practices and games will be canceled by the league.

• Coaches should keep an eye on each player to look for signs of breathing difficulties. If any of these symptoms occur, please address them appropriately.

The above are merely guidelines and it is the responsibility of parents to make the ultimate decision as to the participation of their child. When hot weather or air quality may be a factor, please take into consideration the age and physical condition of your child. Parents also have the ultimate responsibility to inform their child about the dangers of the weather and air quality.
