Smoke and Air Quality Update

Posted by WYSC Administration at Sep 6, 2017 10:27AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Hello players and parents,

I hope the transition from summer holidays back to school/sport is going well!

As you know, we have smoke and reduced air quality again in Whistler, HOWEVER, please note that we will be running all scheduled

practices and games as planned on the schedule. (Midweek and Saturday)

This will help with family schedules/planning and getting our players back into the rythm of soccer after school.

We will however adapt practices and not over do it for the players based on the AQHI reports each day.

It will be a chance for players to get back with their soccer friends and coaches and remember what soccer is all about……FUN!

Of course, it is your choice whether you send them or not, however we want you to know that we will have staff at the fields for all sessions as planned.

Thanks Mitch WYSC Administrator
