The University of Wisconsin - Platteville system has once again decided to cancel Intramural/Sport Teams practices for the spring 2021 semester, but yet decided to keep practices for the NCAA Division III teams to continue on with theirs. Many of the athletes here are frustrated with the discrimination against non-division players. Many of these teams tend to do very well during their seasons and make it on a national level, just as the division teams do. However, these teams also do not get recognized for their achievements. The least this school could do is provide these teams with the opportunity to practice without liability to the school.

These clubs and sports help students excel in school and taking that away would be detrimental to these students and their physical and mental health. Being physically active is a key part of having a good immune system, better mental health, and a better social network. These students would be healthier and better to fight off COVID this way rather than being stuck in their dorms or at home. Many students at this school use their sports as an outlet for their personal lives.

Instead of just cancelling the sports overall, we are asking to be provided a contract that prevents the school from any liability issues regarding health and COVID-related illnesses. The students signing would fully understand the risks that they are taking and the school would be exempt from any liability.
