Coaches, it's time for us to lead. We can make a difference by mobilizing our teams to send a clear message to California officials. Let's shift the tough decisions about the risk of returning to high school sports and assuming responsibility to our families. It's simple,
Let Families Decide.

AN OPEN LETTER TO
HIGH SCHOOL COACHES.
It’s time for us to lead. Join me to send a clear message to California officials. If we can return to school, which parents overwhelmingly support, Let Families Decide if we return to high school sports when we get there.
As a father of two high school STUDENT/Athletes and a high school head football coach (Scripps Ranch High School, San Diego, CA) I couldn’t sit back and do nothing. The idea of my son, my team and 800,000+ STUDENT/Athletes being sidelined is making me crazy.
So I started LetFamiliesDecide.org because I believe in the power of high school sports to teach lessons that will last a lifetime. I know our administrators have our childrens’ best interest in mind, but there is no one more qualified to look after the physical and mental well-being of our children than families. Let Families Decide if they want to take on the risk and assume responsibility for our kids returning to sports.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We need to gather 25,000 parents, students and coaches before CIF meets on July 20, 2020 to send a clear message, Let Families Decide.
We need you to reach out to your teams, direct them to LetFamiliesDecide.org to SIGN UP. Each day we will focus on different decision-makers, sending them our message. But your parents and students must SIGN UP so we can reach our goal of 25,000 members this week.

FOR YOUR TEAM
WE NEED YOUR HELP
We need your help! We know our administrators have our kids' best interests in mind. But the decision to return to high school sports should be up to our families. Many school districts in California have asked families to decide if they want their children back in the classroom, and parents have responded with an overwhelming yes. We want that same choice to return to high school sports when our schools reopen.
Don't cancel fall sports. If school are open, we want California officials to Let Families Decide if they want their children to return to high school sports
Go to LetFamiliesDecide.org and SIGN UP!
