Air Quality Guidelines
With hazy conditions due to the wildfires in our province, be sure you are aware of the Alberta Soccer Air Quality Monitoring guidelines: http://calgaryminorsoccer.com/files/asa_weather_policy_information_card_-_2018.pdf
If air quality health index is ‘7’ or higher – games/practices should be delayed or rescheduled
Please monitor conditions here: http://airquality.alberta.ca/map/
If the affiliated member has not cancelled games in advance all teams and match officials should arrive ready to play. If the AQHI is at "7" at the next calculation the match official should consider delaying or cancelling the game. If the game is cancelled it is required to write on the game sheet; the reason for abandonment with Index Calculation, time & date and AQHI station used.
If the AQHI is "3" or below continue with training as normal
If the AQHI is "4-6" adjust practice by doing the following:
- Reducing intensity
- Reducing the duration
- Provide resting periods
If the AQHI is "7" or above practices should be rescheduled
Game Field Closure Information
All tiers of U9 - U12, games are played on Community (Club) supplied fields. Check the home team club website for field status. If there is no information posted, contact the home team.
Games for U13 - U19 all tiers see the link below for all game field locations and the game field closure line information. The phone line is the official determiner if the field is opened or closed, NOT the City of Calgary website.
For the Rundle College and Edge Fields you need to show up at the field and the referee will decide whether the game will go ahead.
For the SAIT field, the rainout line phone number is 403.284.8027. (Play is only canceled in the event of lighting and heavy snow fall.)
The safety of players, coaches, management and spectators is the primary concern in any weather event that occurs during all matches sanctioned by the CSA. By understanding and following the attached information, the safety of everyone shall be greatly increased. Ultimately the referee has the final say over delaying or restarting a match due to weather. Waiting to stop play or not waiting to start play may result in a serious injury or loss of life. Referees are expected to act responsibly when dealing with such events during matches they are controlling.
