Affluent-kid sports will be OK, Poor kid sports will suffer

Sports such as soccer, softball, volleyball and lacrosse that rely on travel teams funded by affluent parents will still have a good feeder network to identify and develop elite talent. Swimming and gymnastics are two others dominated by clubs that should be OK. Track and wrestling are the ones to worry about. Most athletes come up through HS and college teams, and many are not from affluent backgrounds.
