We all know the many benefits that sports bring to teenagers. After these past 6 months of quarantine and social restrictions our teens need to get back to their pools, playing fields, courts and friends. Sports not only keep our teens physically healthy and challenged but regular physical activity provides an outlet for stress relief, helps maintain a positive mental health state as well as safely generates a social outlet for otherwise isolated teens. In these uncertain and sometimes frightening times, sports can fulfill many physical, social and emotional needs for our teens while reducing the incidences of depression and undue stress. 

High Schools in Northern Santa Barbara County as well as some in Ventura County have opened their pools, fields and courts to allow students to practice and workout with their team mates. We feel that Southern Santa Barbara County deserves the same privilege. 

We strongly urge your support of the reopening of our school facilities, with responsible social distancing to allow our students to start to get back to normal by safely reintroducing physical activity, camaraderie and life balance.
