Trenton Shetler started this petition to PSUAC and

PSUAC should reconsider allowing college students to play sports in the Spring. Athletics are a huge role in all of the student-athletes lives. Some chose certain colleges just to play a certain sport. All of us will make the changes to be able to play. The whole Fall of 2020 we practiced in masks and we made the changes we had to make. If we can practice with our whole team we should be able to play against other teams with restrictions. High schools in PA are allowed to play we should be able to as well. Some of the athletes if not all have dreamed about being able to play at the collegiate level. Athletics are not only important for our health but it also helps us with academics. It has been proven that students have better grades while playing a college sport. We all know this has been a rough time and everyone has to make sacrifices. But with canceling sports, that is crushing dreams. Other colleges can play why not us? They might have the money for frequent testing but that’s not fair to us. We set a plan for checking temps and they have implemented a symptom checker. If someone has any symptoms they don’t show up. It’s simple if they are scared to play due to the pandemic then they don’t have to play but the ones who want to play should be able to play. All of the schools agreed to allowing the students play. This is a hard time in life but we shouldn’t lose everything we look forward to because of it. We understand we have limitations. I believe the PSUAC should reconsider athletic competition for the Spring of 2021. Athletics affect students not only physically but mentally as well. This is our last moments to be able to play sports. College is the last road stop for students to be able to pursue their dreams. The PSUAC doesn’t count the year missed of eligibility but that doesn’t help the students. We would have to spend another year at college and spend thousands of more dollars just to play the missed season. This is not fair to the students and I believe the PSUAC should really reconsider college athletic competition.
