    It isn't an ideal situation, and it would be handled case by case. In general, though, we tentatively place the athlete on the team we assume they would have made otherwise. When they are back in full form, we let them stay on that team unless they are a mismatch at that point. We would try to have pretty open and honest discussion with athlete and family throughout.

    Whats your opinions on the possibilities of worlds being pushed back? Ive heard rumors that they might now try and hold it late this year.
    Realistic? Pointless? Or do you think there is a better way to save the season. Or to just move on.

    I don't know the answer. I don't think USASF really has a choice but to try to salvage Worlds. As the shutdown continues further, I don't see how Worlds is realistic for us, however. It is too soon to write the possibility off completely, but we are getting close to that point.

    With COVID-19 challenges, have you seen the number of athletes trying out for all-star teams decrease, stay the same, or increase?

    We have been a bit shocked at this, but the number has been about the same, possibly a bit higher. We were anticipating a pretty big drop-off. We do recognize that the situation is still fluid, however.
