Over the last few days, due to the wild fires and the increased poor air quality, BC Soccer has been receiving inquiries on if games and tournament should proceed or not. As a result, BC Soccer has developed the attached guidance document based on information from Health Canada, the BC Government and other PSO guidance documents.

The health and safety of the players and participants is of the utmost importance.

Note: The document is also available on the BC Soccer website under Members Service and Good Practice Guides.
