The initiative has been in the works for year. Depending on the perspective, soccer is low impact and can be played with a much higher level of safety compared to other sports. No option to play football without risk to the players. The average high school cannot test each player prior to each game. No need to test beyond the temperature for a soccer game. The pandemic is a 12-18 month issue optimistically.
