In effort to protect the health and safety of our participants, the FYAA Board has issued a recommended procedure for the determination of the Heat Index (a combination of Temperature and Relative Humidity) and guidelines for football activities based on the reading of the Heat Index. The Heat Index reading will determine the need for any necessary modifications for football activities. The FYAA Board will make a decision using guidelines below whether to make changes to any activities held that day. Coaches then will make the necessary modifications.
