The PSUAC Executive Committee recently voted unanimously to cancel all intercollegiate athletics competition for fall and winter team sports during the 2020-21 academic year. The sports affected by this decision include men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball.
The conference office has continuously monitored university, federal, state and national governing body guidelines, as well as national trends in intercollegiate athletics throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of student-athletes, coaches and campus communities has continued to be the most important aspect of the PSUAC’s attempts to resocialize intercollegiate sports at the commonwealth campuses. Given the unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic, the PSUAC had previously postponed fall and winter sports competition to the spring semester. This most recent decision cancels regular season and conference championship competition for those fall and winter sports.
