Covid Sidelines Athletics

During the pandemic sports were closed down for a while and students couldn’t play in California. As guidelines changed, some sports have reopened.

Most sports teams that are in California, haven’t been playing in California very much. Many who play club sports are traveling out of town to play in tournaments.

“I miss the contact of the sport. I have been going to play games at the Manhattan Village, and Arizona, “seventh grade at Hermosa Valley School student Marcus G. said.

Some areas allow sports to continue as long as the athletes wear masks.

“When you’re running down the court sweating and you have a mask on it’s hard to breathe,” ninth grade Maider Dai student Tyler R. said.

Athletes cannot play with as much contact as usual. 

“Covid has changed sports for kids a lot but at least we can play,” Tyler R. Said.
