Air Quality

Surrey FC relies on the Government of Canada’s Observed Air Quality Index and Air Quality Guidelines as the main references for making well-informed decisions regarding potential alterations, rescheduling, or scaling back of its camp programs. The club is committed to prioritizing the well-being of players, members, and staff, and will strive to adhere to the scheduled programs whenever feasible, adjusting decisions as conditions evolve.
