That means a lot more kids are going to have to travel even farther for games and practices. Odds are, that decreases participation and enrollment.
Regardless of what happens you're going to have parents torn 50/50 between the two, whether it's blanket no-contact or not. If participation wasn't decreased before I don't see why it would decrease in this instance.
I'll grant you that I had a really ****** sleep so I may not be seeing the full picture here
