As we began planning the season several months ago, not one of us imagined the circumstance that we are currently facing. The COVID-19 outbreak has prompted unprecedented changes in the world and in the world of sports. There are new recommendations every day. The fluidity of the situation surely adds to the confusion and concern.
The Greatwood Gator Board is following closely the situation and recommendations from the CDC, the White House, and the league. We are in close contact with the WHALe Executive Board. We are keenly aware of the challenges that the COVID-19 outbreak will present for our families, our coaches, and our sponsors.
We would like to assure you that as we are learning to navigate these uncertain times, your Board is working on the season moving forward in this new climate and making contingency plans for several different scenarios. While we are currently in a watch and wait position, we are evaluating all options. We have time and we will be ready with our action plan.
We know that this quarantine will end. And when it does, we will all need activities for our children and our families to join in. We have time. More importantly, we need to have hope. Our families need to have hope. We still have lots of options and although the season may not end up looking normal, we have a strong chance to still do what we all love…swim!
