The Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Board of Directors has made several decisions regarding formal athletics competition for conference-sponsored fall, winter and spring sports.

The CSAC Board of Directors, which had previously suspended competition for fall sports in the Fall 2020 semester as well as competition for winter sports through January 31, 2021, announced today that formal conference competition and conference championships for fall and winter sports shall be cancelled for the 2020-21 academic year.

Institutions shall be granted autonomy regarding practice, training and outside competition opportunities for the sports of men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball. CSAC institutions are committed to following pandemic related metrics, all local, state, and federal health guidelines as well as NCAA recommendations in developing plans for athletic activity.

A decision about spring sports competition will next be evaluated by the CSAC Board of Directors in January.
