Fall Ball Participants,
Just an advisory that the air quality is currently in the moderate range and will be in the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” range for the rest of the week due to the numerous wildfires happening throughout the area. As of now, we leave it up to the coaches and parents to decide whether to practice. If the air quality worsens, we may be forced to cancel practices.
You can find up to date air quality information at https://www.iqair.com/us/usa/california/irvine. I have attached the upcoming week predictions as well as what each category means.
*The use of medical and cloth masks are not effective for filtering smoke particles. N95 masks are more effective, but are probably not recommended for children playing sports.
We ask that if you are not going to practice, please let your coaches know out of courtesy. The Fall Ball rosters are smaller in order to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.
I know everybody is looking forward to seeing friends, meeting their teammates, and getting back on the field. We want everybody to be as safe as possible!

Each category corresponds to a different level of health concern. The six levels of health concern and what they mean are:
