"We're so excited to return to practice with our SOTX Athletes. We've been working hard to return as safely as possible and have a few new protocols we'll implement for practice and play, but the opportunity to get Athletes back on the field is here and we can't wait to see everyone out there." Said Senior Director of Competition & Games, Chad Eason.
