Since the end of the stay at home order on April 30th, Tennessee has seen a steady reopening of the economy, allowing for public gatherings of up to 50 people and restaurants returning to 50% capacity. The new regulations are good news for the Tennessee Tyrants as training sessions will once again be able to take place with the full team in attendance. However, other states continue shutdowns like California, Florida, and New York, where the many teams reside. The NVA staff remain optimistic that there will be live-action by the end of the season. Players are staying healthy and hopeful to restart the schedule and provide for the fans. The NVA fan-base will patiently wait for the league to deliver the good news. While other American sports leagues talk about the likelihood of broadcasting games with no fans, the association is following suit. The NVA executives are looking for an appropriate venue that will follow all the guidelines and keep everyone protected.
As one NVA executive articulated, “In these unknown difficult times, it is one’s choice to be a leader/role model among their teammates, family, friends. We all have a choice to continue to work hard, productive or be lazy or destructive to our community. At NVA, we expect our staff, coaches, team members, players to uphold our core values: respectful, encouragement, and leadership” CEO, Howard Ouellette.
