Playing basketball has always been one of my favorite things to do. It's such a fun and challenging sport, both physically and mentally...and that's WITHOUT playing with a mask on.

In a recent webinar, the Colorado High School Activities Association set out the guidelines for the upcoming basketball season and one of the rules is that all players must wear masks at ALL times...including during play.

2020 was a year that saw a massive amount of changes and cancellations, and with the new year, it's important to remember that we are still not out of the woods with this COVID stuff. I'm happy for the student athletes who are able to actually play games, albeit with the added challenge of wearing a mask while doing so, and the fact that both they and their parents will be able to get back a little sense of normalcy.

Good luck to all of the student athletes in the upcoming winter sports season. Have fun and stay safe!
