Most cross country coaches give their runners some type of training plan or weekly mileage target during the summer. This isn't much different. Whether they're supervised or not, runners run.I know a lot are still giving workouts to athletes but I am concerned that these kids doing these workouts unsupervised is totally wrong. If something goes wrong (like an injury, medical emergency, inclement weather, some type of altercation with others in their community) while doing these workouts not being supervised by a licensed coach, it could lead to some serious harm to these athletes.
I wish if this is allowed that coaches could at least be there as a safety net. But it would be impossible to implement the social distancing because the students will all come together On a track with 8 lanes.
