#LetThemPlay College Spring Sports

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Science and data show that it’s safe to play collegiate sports following COVID protocols.

Student-athletes at Union do not want to lose a second Spring season. Many members of the Union community believe that sports can be performed safely, causing little to no risk to the community.

Student-athletes feel a sense of helplessness by not competing in the sport that they have dedicated a large portion of their lives to — and it is fundamentally wrong for Union to not exhaust every option possible to make Spring sports a reality.

Further, the mental health issues caused by not competing can’t be overlooked. If student-athletes were to lose 50 percent of their collegiate careers, an already present feeling of distress will be stimulated.

The Union College Student Handbook makes clear that the College will always aim to act in the best interest of its students — it is expected that this commitment to students won’t be violated.
