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.

I am signing because as an educator I know how important it is to have students involved in sports. It helps with their mental well-being and serves as motivation to perform better in school. Our students need to be out playing their sports with the hope that it can bring some normalcy to their lives. Studies have been done in that states that are open for sports and zero athletes have been hospitalized due to COVID. Please take this into consideration.

Without social interaction we loose our sense of community- our foundation of civilization.
Football builds that foundation.
