I pulled my daughter from gym a couple of weeks ago due to spiking Covid cases and a lack of precautions. I now feel comfortable sending her back with new precautions but our governor has put a stop to all non-collegiate sports competitions. I told her she can go back expecting excitement but she says she doesn't want to. If she can't compete, what's the point? I explained to her she will likely lose skills and take a few steps back next year and she says she doesn't care. We've already paid for apparel ($400) and two meet fees ($300). Competitions still *might* happen virtually or otherwise and we've invested these funds. Should I let it go and take her out for the season or keep pushing her to fulfill her obligation? I mean, honestly, if things get worse here I might pull her again. I just hate the thought of the wasted time and money.
