In partnership with Under Armour, I am proud to share this heat map as a real-time and data-informed resource that tracks the return to youth sports. This map provides visibility into state-by-state and sport-specific trends across the U.S., and is accompanied by return-to-play resources and sentiments from thought leaders across the country. I invite you to explore, follow and share!
Week of July 6, 2020 findings include:
Given the continued increase in COVID-19 cases across the country, we will monitor these trends closely in the coming weeks. I encourage you to review and share the many resources within this page to support a safe return to sports.
Score calculated using registrations, invitations and events measured as a % relative to the same trailing 28 day period from 2019.
My expectations low, my hope is high. I just want to get back to playing.
I expect there will be some skepticism, some conditioning issues, small groups until parents feel comfortable, some health protocol, etc...but most of all, I expect excitement and amazing energy from the kids, organization and coaches.
Smaller groups, socially distancing when appropriate, improved hygiene stations with hand sanitizer and/or hand washing stations. Sports focused outdoors rather than indoors where droplets and airborne diseases travel easier.
Because we are still only in phase one of reopening and I also personally think it’s too early to return to full contact sports such as soccer hockey, and football with the cases of COVID 19 still so high and increasing sadly. But I think sports where individuals are at a distance such as tennis and golf are okay to restart next month or so.
Just happy to get back out there with my team. They need to get out of the house and get back to sports. We plan to hit the ground running!
