ROSEMONT, Pa.—The Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Board of Directors continues to work diligently to monitor the rapidly-evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its campus communities, specifically in relation to formulating a viable path forward for formal intercollegiate athletic competition during the spring semester.
Due to the travel restrictions imposed by most states and the sharply rising rate of infection across our region, the CSAC and the Board of Directors have agreed that winter sports will not resume at least through the month of January. While no formal schedules have been adopted at this time, the Board does intend to resume intercollegiate competition during the spring semester and has advised the conference office to incorporate all available data into developing appropriate schedules for each conference-sponsored sport as allowable.
The Board is committed to providing a safe environment for competition and as such has agreed that all of its member institutions shall adhere to the recommendations outlined by the NCAA and the Sport Science Institute related to testing and social distancing at athletic competitions. The Board and conference office staff shall continue to review interstate restrictions on travel as well as the trends related to infection rates within the conference geographic footprint prior to committing to the resumption of competition.
Due to the unpredictable disruptions related to COVID-19, the CSAC and the Board of Directors recognize that plans for returning to competition shall be dictated by local, state and federal guidelines, recommendations or mandates and are subject to change at any time.
