NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The University of The Bahamas’ (UB) athletic teams have returned to practice adhering to strict COVID-19 protocols as national restrictions were recently eased.
The university’s 11 teams have not practiced in earnest since March because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown orders that followed.
During the lockdowns, teams had virtual practices focusing on conditioning but have only recently been able to practice in person with many restrictions.
Head Track and Field Coach Ednal Rolle said his team, like all teams, had to adjust. He added that the athletic training team has been a big part of the teams returning to practice.
“The athletic training team has put protocols in place to allow the teams to train safely,” he said. “Most of the time, their procedures are more stringent than what is recommended but that means they are making sure our athletes are practicing in a safe environment.”
