A shout out to Coach Manabu of the Shin Asahi Mosquito team for this creative and meaningful message.
On behalf of the coaches and board members, we wish everyone to be safe and healthy. If all the players know one thing, it's team work. Right now is the time to demonstrate it. Do your part, pick each other up, and focus on process.
Dear Asahi families,
With the worldwide pandemic of the COVID-19 outbreak, sports activities are not exempted to exposure, as seen in the NBA. Other sports organizations like the NHL are taking precautionary steps.
As Spring Break approaches, some families will be traveling by planes and visiting places that have more confirmed cases of COVID-19. We wish you safe travels and ask that you follow best safety practices for your family and fellow teammates.
With many sources of information out there, please allow yourself to be informed by the facts put out by the following dependable organizations:
World Health Organization - https://www.who.int/
Center for Disease Control - https://www.cdc.gov/
Public Health Agency of Canada - https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health.html
We are exercising an abundance of caution, for the sake of all the players, their families and everybody in our organization / community, we will be postponing the 2021 Japan Tour Tryouts. We will notify players once we get new dates for try outs.
Be safe and healthy,
The Asahi Board
