Coaches vs. COVID Call to Action

Saratoga Springs — A new social media campaign, Coaches vs. COVID, is urging Section II coaches to #LeadLocal by supporting local business and hospitals. 

“It encourages all high school, middle school and youth coaches, and community members, to continue serving as community leaders, even as the pandemic has limited practices and games. This is a way for coaches to continue leading and positively impact our communities and schools, regardless of the state allowing us to compete.” said organizer Chris Cottrell, the boys’ varsity basketball coach at South Glens Falls High School.

To raise awareness and support the campaign, just snap a pic of yourself wearing a Coaches vs. COVID shirt at a local business and post it on social media. 

All proceeds from sales will be distributed between Glens Falls Hospital, Saratoga Hospital and the Albany Medical Center COVID-19 Response Funds. 

To purchase a shirt, make a donation, or for additional information, find them on Twitter or Facebook @Coaches_vs_Covid or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
