Coalition for Athletic Justice started this petition to NCAA and

On March 31st, the NCAA in an unprecedented move Cancelled the opportunities of Winter sports Athletes to Compete in the NCAA Championships. The NCAA over the years has had strict rules on the number of Semesters Athletes can play a sport and how they can participate. This year the NCAA due to COVID-19 Canceled all Championship events, but they did not afford Athletes a chance to speak up and thus violated our 14th Amendment, which is the right to due process. We were not heard in a closed-door meeting, and they gave no reason other than they felt we had played enough.

The fact is that we do not just play a game; we all work to see a championship, and so we are calling on leaders to fix this wrong.


We, the undersigned, are the Student-Athletes, Parents, Fans, and supporters of college sports who have paid their dues and sacrificed college nights for early morning runs and summers in the gym. The COVID-19 Pandemic has taken away what we all knew would have been a magical conclusion for dreams or painful reminders of last-second chances that slipped away. While we have always been the headlines and the storylines of magical moments, today, we part of this global nightmare.


In 1943 almost every college chose to cancel sports so that every person could play there part in making sure that we kept America safe. We Canceled games so that young men and women could serve their country in every possible way, but when those young men and women returned home from that war, they were allowed back into the sports that they left with open arms. Protecting our nation is done by our President, Our Congress, and Every leader of this world, and now they asked us to forgo our Championship, but not allow us to get that one semester back.

We are not asking for a season; we are asking for a semester where we could have a chance to compete! Not a season which already runs from November to March, unlike the Fall and Spring sports, which both end far earlier. We are asking that all athletes impacted by this terrible world tragedy who were eligible at the time of the pandemic are granted a semester to compete for a spot on our teams, a conference Tournament, and a National Title.

As the NCAA has pointed out that " A great many of us will go on to be a professional in something else just not in sports"  well earning that All-American or National Championship might be the way some of us get a chance to have a job interview and go on to be a professional in something else. 

We ask you to join us and Give us back our semester

Sincerely

Coalition for College Athletic Justice
