We need your help!

We all know that safety comes first, however, what about other aspects of an individual such as our mental health and physical health? Lots of athletes rely off of exercise, routine, and focus. Not being able to get up and go to practice and lift has not only reduced our motivation to stay in shape, but has changed our level of happiness as well. 

Being on the field and feeling comfortable partaking in one of our main hobbies boosts an athletes confidence. Whether it is your teammates cheering you on at practice or helping you with everyday life, the support from your teammates can help your mental health and guide you past your college years. 

It is hard for athletes to wrap their heads around not being able to play when the majority of us live together and hangout with each other almost everyday. For some seniors, this is our last year to play in our entire lives, we will never be able to get this experience back. 

Having a routine by getting up everyday and starting the day on a positive note can change how focused and motivated you are to complete homework and any other tasks.

Knowing that other schools out there are playing, practicing and getting better while we are stuck at home watching them on social media, does not seem fair for athletes who have put in countless hours of work to not be given the chance to show it off. 

Parents have invested many hours and money for their child to play their sport. Parents have helped their children reach their dreams of playing a sport in college, yet this has been taken away from them. 

We deserve to be given the chance, just like other colleges and high schools have. We deserve to be able to show we can follow all of the COVID-19 protocol. We will do anything that is asked to remain safe and healthy, all we are asking for is a chance to play what we love. 

Please sign this petition if you agree and are willing to help Wilmington University athletes start sports now. Feel free to express your thoughts and feelings because you deserve to be heard!
