March 13, 2020
The PSAC Board of Directors met by conference call this morning and passed the following motions effective immediately:
- 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.
- 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.
