ATLANTA (Oct. 16, 2020) - On October 12, the Southern Athletic Association's Council of Presidents voted to tentatively approve a modified schedule for all 21 conference sponsored sports which would begin play in early 2021.
The Council of Presidents weighed all medical information consistent with federal and state public health authorities, the NCAA, and institutional guidelines. Based on those recommendations, there is an intent to play the approved schedules while continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic moving forward.
Additionally, the Council of Presidents has created an SAA COVID-19 Task Force committee that will create consistent policies based on national and local health guidelines, social distancing, masking, and coronavirus testing.
A confirmation of returning to play will take place in December after the Council of Presidents has reviewed recommendations by the SAA COVID-19 Task Force committee's work.
