What’s Bruin, 9/2: Bruins women’s soccer return to the field

The Women’s Soccer team is the first to give us a minor glimpse into their return to the practice fields

The UCLA Bruins women’s soccer team has returned to the practice field, giving us a glimpse of what practice is going to look like as the athletics programs return to the field amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Some still images gave us a great feel of what the practice fields look like, while some practice footage gave us an even closer glimpse inside the team’s first few practices back.

The UCLA soccer team returned to practice all the while crosstown rival USC has had to close down and pause their workouts for their football and men’s water polo team, showing just how fragile and how quickly the sports world has had to adapt during the coronavirus pandemic.

USC had eight football and water polo student-athletes test positive last week.

The UCLA fall sports calendar has yet to be decided as to when competitions will start, if they actually do start, at the turn of the calendar to 2021.

The Pac-12 canceled the fall sports season last month and despite President Donald Trump meeting with Big Ten officials this week to reportedly ‘kick start the Big Ten football season,’ no move to contact the Pac-12 had been made by the White House.

Regardless, a little insight into the athletics programs continuing to work out and train is a refreshing sight. And here’s hoping we’d get to seem them sooner than later, even if we do have to wait until 2021 to do so.
