Impact of COVID -19 on College Sports

Student-athletes dedicate years to perfecting their craft, fine-tuning their strengths, overcoming weaknesses, and developing mental fortitude. But with an unexpected global pandemic putting a halt on sports entertainment, many athletes were left with an important decision to make: to play or not to play.

Our team crafted a resource to help paint a clear picture of how COVID -19 played a role in the lives of athletes across the world — and the effects it could potentially have on the pathway to becoming a professional athlete. We spoke to collegiate players across various divisions and sports, professional athletes, and even received advice from a top-performing coach. Hear what they had to say.
