Crystal DiMaggio started this petition to LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine and

The importance of high school sports to the overall well-being of a student is immense. Playing sports allows a student to build character, confidence, perseverance, leadership, and self-respect. Most importantly, it affords them the opportunity to participate in something that makes our country great-FREEDOM OF CHOICE. Playing sports allows them the opportunity to CHOOSE to participate in something and work hard to reach that goal. If high schools in other states are allowed to play sports, why should our kids be stripped of the right to CHOOSE to play? If preventing high school sports to begin is truly about safety and protection amidst a pandemic, please allow parents to sign a waiver freeing “you” from any repercussions. If this is truly about the concern of our children’s health, then LET THEM CHOOSE to play or you are stripping them of access to the things that will help them to thrive. 

Mr. Bonine and Gov. Edwards, please follow the lead of other states and give us back our right to choose for our children to play high school sports. We trust you to lead our athletic association and our state. Please trust us with our own children’s health.

Sincerely, 

A concerned parent of high school students
