Sun Belt Conference Delays Fall Sports to September 3



The Sun Belt Conference announced that it will delay the first permissible date of competition for the 2020-21 academic year to Sept. 3, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rescheduling of contests due to these adjustments will be determined by each member institution.

“This delay will allow conference members additional time to implement protocols for a safe return to competition,” the conference said in a statement. “The Sun Belt Conference and each member institute will continue to lean on the COVID-19 Advisory Panel, which has worked diligently to establish protocols and guidelines that will ensure the health and well-being of student-athletes, coaches and staff as they return to play.”
