PSAC Announcement on COVID-19

March 13, 2020

The PSAC Board of Directors met by conference call this morning and passed the following motions effective immediately:

  1. That effective immediately, Friday, March 13, the PSAC and its member institutions suspend all athletic competition for the remainder of the Spring Semester.

    Any non-conference competition already travelled to are left to the institutional discretion through March 15, at which time all athletic competitions must cease.

  2. That all countable related athletic activities (CARA) is suspended until March 30 at which time the Board  of Directors will review a proposal from the Athletics Administrators to resume CARA or suspend for the remainder of the semester

I will be working with our athletics administrators to develop a recommendation to the Board regarding the cancellation or resumption of CARA after March 30.  Violators of this motion will be subject to penalties including future participation in conference championships and/or fines.  This two-week period allows everyone to push the reset button on campus and evaluate the situation with a more clear understanding of our national crisis.

This is a very difficult time for our nation, let alone our conference. It is with a heavy heart that I forward this announcement to all of you.  Please keep in mind your student-athletes during this time. Please follow all CDC recommendations for enhanced precautions and above all else, please take care of yourselves.

Regards,
Steve Murray
Commissioner
Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference
