My adult hockey league is talking about restarting next week based on some new policies from our state (WA) that seem to allow it. No, I am not playing despite a lot of happy talk about how easy it will be to stay safe. I don’t believe the game can be played without getting somebody else’s exhalations all over me.
The number of players coming back surprised me (the league had over 1,000 players before the shutdown):
In the age 18+ division, about 80% of the players plan to return.
In the age 40+ division, about 70% of the players plan to return including a lot of mid-50’s players.
I’m curious if anybody (or their kids) has restarted team sports and if so, how has the social distancing looked?
