Today, March 12, 2020 NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the championships of any remaining winter and spring sports. This decision is extremely harmful to the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people invested in these sports.

As athletes, we understand how important it is to protect each other from any harm, and we agree with the implementations that the NCAA has created up until this point. No fans attending games, no gathering for practice, even postponing the season indefinitely. All of these things are reasonable considering the health and safety of the community should always come first.

The fact of the matter is that no-one knows what will happen as COVID-19 progresses and there is no harm in keeping our sports on hold. Canceling the entire season, as well as championships of multiple sports is an emotional judgement that should never have happened. If the coronavirus continues to progress, then yes, seasons should be canceled, however, until that point, our seasons should remain as they were!

PLEASE sign this petition to REVERSE the decision made this afternoon to cancel our sports, and change the status back to "suspended until further notice".
