Northwest Baseball Heat Guidelines

NW Bakersfield Baseball has set some new Heat Guidelines that we will be using for practices at this time. We will address game days each day as well as we move forward. The following guidelines are effective immediately, all practices for today will be canceled based on these guidelines. 

AQI (Air Quality Index) 175-200 or with Temperatures 105 and below – Coaches are ok to have practice but with caution. Players should be given water breaks at least every 10-15 minutes or more often for any kids needing it.

AQI (Air Quality Index) 200 and above or Temperatures 106 and above all practices will be canceled at the NW Bakersfield Baseball Complex for the whole day.

Even with these guidelines all Coaches and Parents need to use common sense, if you see any kids struggling at any time please take a break.
 

The league will post on our website each day about closures.
