Because I am the parent and I should be able to decide what my kid can and can’t do safely. I should also be allowed to evaluate and determine the risks to my own child from playing sports (they are optional, to those that disagree).

I was as well a high school athlete in value the importance of high school sports for high school athletes. From any of this is their social life,What keeps them sane, and instills many good values.

Our kids have waited too long to participate in sports. The lack of activity, socialization and peer relationships has been very damaging to our young people. Follow the science! Let them play!

We can pack in to airplanes, pack into supermarkets and ‘peacefully’ protest amongst 1000’s of people but can’t play high school sports?? Get this state open!! Let the kids play

If some businesses are allowed to be open right now (with safety measures in place) then all programs should be allowed the same opportunity to prove they can operate safely. If one take-out restaurant had an outbreak, would ALL take-out restaurants be shut down. If one massage therapist had an outbreak, would all massage therapists be shut down. Right now, all youth sports are shut down regardless of their ability to operate safely. They're simply shutdown because the word "sports" is in their name.
