Teams impacted by COVID-19

Post by romeokar »

In response to the recommendations and protocols from the Governor Lamont, the Dept. Of Public Health, and the State Dept. Of Ed, Darien public schools is banning all interstate travel for extracurricular activities.

We do not know how long the ban will be on place, but certainly this impacts Middlesex's participation in MSNCT. While we have not officially been told to withdraw our registration, I am operating under the assumption that we will not be able to attend.

If other schools/programs are in the same predicament we are, I encourage them to post on this thread so that we can all see the scope of how these National tournaments are being impacted.

All of our out-of-state travel has been cancelled through the end of this month, with eyes toward extending that travel ban depending on what happens over the next few weeks. I anticipate that we will be told to cancel plans to attend IPNCT and SSNCT very soon. I will hold out until the very end and hope that things work out. But, I'm not hopeful.

I also have a team registered for MSNCT. If things don't die down soon, I fear we will miss out on all of these. My kids and I are very disappointed to say the least....

In the interest of organization, I have made a form that teams can fill out. I will be dumping that information into a spreadsheet and posting a link once I have a non zero amount of data points. I am instituting the use of a form to prevent trolling.

Can you add SSNCT? And, possibly give the option to choose multiple team types (I have middle and high school teams).

I have added SSNCT but I am going to ask that you fill out the form again for your middle and high school team. I am segregating data by school type.

Thank you! I shared on Twitter in the hopes of reaching as many programs as possible.

Due to the cancellation of IPNCT and ICT I have removed those options from the form.
