“I’m hearing people talk that this is an opportunity for a reset,” Eric Legg of Arizona State University’s School of Community Resources & Development said during a webinar earlier this month. “This is a chance for us to go back to localized, community-based sports. To get back to sport and primary purpose of sport being youth development and life development.”
Arizona State's Global Sport Institute planned to host its third Global Sport Summit this week in Phoenix.
The coronavirus pandemic forced a cancellation of the summit, which was to have centered on sport and the body, the Global Sport Institute's 2020 theme.
In lieu of the summit, Global Sport Institute CEO Ken Shropshire gathered seven sports experts from around the world to discuss the impact of coronavirus on sport.
