Officially Approve Return to Play for Adults in NYC

We are petitioning the Mayor to align with NY State guidelines and approve a return to play for organized sports in New York City. Our united efforts with Youth organizations (#Fields4NYCYouth) helped ensure that tens of thousands of children can get back to playing. We are now asking the Mayor's office to approve adult to safely participate in healthy, social activities outdoors.

New York State Guidelines:

"As described more fully in the guidance, participants in low- and moderate-risk sports and recreation activities may partake in all types of play, except competitive tournaments requiring travel."

NYC has been approved by the State for the above participation since July 6th, when it entered Phase 3. Unfortunately, adults eager to find mental and physical refuge through organize sport are unable.

As a result, individuals throughout the 5 boroughs are taking it upon themselves to be active throughout NYC parks. Enforcing rules by officials has proven challenging, considering they are equally short on guidance as to whether they should abide by NY State return to play guidelines (which come easy to read like these Return to Play posters (here) OR await word from our the Mayor's office.

Return to play is a safe mental and physical wellness outlet for all New Yorkers

An approved and strategic return to play in alignment with NY State guidelines will ensure a more organized and safe approach to outdoor activities, whilst providing a critical mental and physical wellness outlet for children and adults.

Please sign this petition for Mayor De Blasio to allow the broader NYC community to safely return to play, within a format that respects safety guidelines and thus providing a safe and healthy outlet for desperate New Yorkers.
