Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Susanna Martinez, I go by Susie around the pool deck. I am an athlete out of New Mexico (mountain zone) who loves to play water polo. As all of you know Covid-19 has had devastating impacts on everyone around the world; as things slowly get back to our new type of “normal” my hopes have been high for being able to play in my state. Unfortunately for the athletes in New Mexico our guidelines are so strict that we are not even allowed to make contact during practice, host games or get anywhere within 6 feet of each other. This is a short list of what activities we ARE allowed to do, so short that I can put in just this sentence: pass, shoot, and a water polo player's least favorite thing to do, swim. 


This is where I need your assistance, I have been trying to advocate to both our county and our state as to why Water Polo should be deemed a low risk sport (in regards to covid-trassmission), the issue is that I do not have enough evidence to back up the claims I am making. I know that all of you have now gotten to the point in your states to where you are allowed to have practices with full contact. I ask that you help me in trying to advocate for a sport that we all love. If you have any information that may help me please send me an email so I can pass it along the chain of command here in NM. I wish to be a bigger advocate for the athletes in my state, to try and make a difference. Thank you for taking time to help an athlete in need.
