We are obviously in a time of worldwide crisis. As coaches and citizens of the world we need to recognize that this transcends sport. Lives are at stake, the fact that sporting events are being cancelled seems trivial. Certainly, I feel for the athletes who have sacrificed so much and had their competitive opportunities taken away, but we must think about the big picture.
Let’s do everything in our power to prevent the spread of this virus. The sooner we act and get out ahead of this then the possibility of some sort of return to normalcy is increased. Although we should all recognize that post coronavirus there will have to be a new reality that we all must understand. All of us need to be proactive and take all steps necessary to prevent further spread of this virus.
