TCS Players, Parents, Administrators and Coaches,
This year has been a challenge for athletes all over the world. The memories that Triple Crown desires to make with you were, in most cases, diminished or eliminated. As we adapted to the limitations forced by the pandemic, we noticed your efforts to play and compete, to deal with Zoom practices and to keep families and team connected. Pain was difficult to avoid, as jobs were lost and loved ones became ill; it hurt to watch student athletes be taken away from their friends. We recognize the mental health struggle many are facing.
In terms of COVID-19, obstacles remain, but please know TCS will be here when it’s your time to shine again. We are offering a menu of events in 2021 that will excite your team and keep everyone safe. TCS was able to produce nearly 50% of its 2020 expected team count, and we’re forecasting a return to 80% in 2021. Look for us to be proactive, with a mix of relocated events to open states, some luck in opening from currently closed municipalities, and dedicated formats that prioritize health and safety.
We are so proud of the efforts you’ve made in 2020 to keep sports in the forefront and ensure that athletes have this amazing opportunity to learn resilience through challenge. Sports are what keep TCS going — it runs through our veins to compete, and we will be here when you most need what we do best.
See you in 2021!
Keri King, CEO
