Allow sports to begin for all the youth ages 1-19
This petition is to ask all schools to LET THE KIDS PLAY Immediately.
Start Immediately allowing all schools in Colorado to begin summer practices for All sports ( contact and non contact). The YOUTH COVID numbers are low, restrictions are being lifted in surrounding states with no outbreaks and kids are wanting to play. Sports are vital for our children’s mental, emotional and physical well-being; not to mention keeps them out of trouble.
The recent decisions of kids to participate in Practices ran by kids at a local park. And have had no issues of Covid or drama. There are no referees, no coaches, no parental guidance, no rules, no regulations and no social distancing. In the student’s eyes it is a success because they are able to exercise, socialize and compete in a sport they love.
From a parent’s prospective, if I want to be responsible for my kids health that’s my choice along with coaches choice if they want to be there .Since many schools will not have practice the whole Summer the kids have decided to continue to plan Practices the rest of the summer;
There is a solution to this! School districts we are asking you to trust your coaches and school staff to make the best social distancing plan possible and allow the kids to start practicing Immediately.For the safety of our kids, it is in their best interest to be in a controlled, safe environment with social distancing guidelines under trained coaching staff rather than allow kids to create events on their own. This will allow parents the right to make the best decisions whether or not to allow their kids to participate. With your help, you can reduce the amount of COVID cases in our community by having kids attend practice at school in a safe environment.
Your community, your parents, & your students believe starting immediately would be the best for our kids. We are willing to sign waivers to LET THE KIDS PLAY
