Freeland, Mich. –Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Presidents’ Council has voted to postpone conference competition and conference tournaments for cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball. The Conference will develop schedules for these sports to take place later in the academic year. The MIAA is committed to offering engaging athletic experiences for student-athletes in these sports with extensive team activities this fall to include practice, skill development, strength & conditioning, leadership, and professional development opportunities.
Adrian College, Calvin University, and Trine University are exploring options to compete in all fall sports that they normally sponsor. Olivet College will explore options for competing in cross country, golf, and tennis this fall. All MIAA member institutions will continue to follow the NCAA recommendations outlined in the Resocialization to Sport – Developing Standards for Competition and Sport document for preseason resocialization to campus, practice, and competition this fall.
Decisions regarding winter sports that begin play in the fall — men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling, swimming and diving, and indoor track and field — will be made at a later date.
