OSAA Story: This story echoes my thoughts below. The decision to delay the season until 4/28 leaves the door open for a Spring athletic season. There are no promises as we don't know where things are heading, but the OSAA is looking into options of how to make it happen.
Latest News You have probably heard already, but school is out for longer. The OSAA has gone along and delayed spring sports through the same date. Obviously, that's not good news, but it is a bit interesting. The fact that they didn't just cancel the season means they are at least looking for solutions. You'll have a lot of time on your hands. Most importantly, stay healthy for your own sake and your families. But staying healthy also means staying fit. Go for a walk or a run, go hit against a wall, or if your parents think that tennis with a friend meets the "social distancing" guidelines, go hit. I debate that myself and have played some with a hand wash right after in case the balls transferred any germs. Again, I'm not a health expert and your parents need to take the lead.
Some Perspective: This decision is very disappointing for lots of athletes (and for the coaches and parents too). There will be times in all our lives where we have to make sacrifices. Some will be much larger than others. Infectious disease experts believe social distancing is the best way to prevent the medical system from becoming overloaded and not being able to care for those in need. While this isn't what we hoped for, this decision will save lives, maybe even the life of someone you know. It's okay to be upset and think it's not fair, but try to remember that what you get to keep may be worth a lot more than what you've lost.
