Casual reminder that if you show up to practice with a fever, a nasty cough, a head cold, congestion, etc. you’re risking spread a ton of germs to everyone else that’s at practice that day (including your coaches).

It’s pretty irresponsible (and borderline selfish) to show up when you’re a bubbling cesspool of snot and mucous so, for the benefit of you and everyone else, just stay home until you’re feeling better. The whole “but I feel guilty/my teammates will hate me if I miss practice” BS really doesn’t fly and everyone is just going to end up more annoyed that you got them sick vs. taking time off to get better.
