As of August 10th, the College of Charleston has suspended all fall 2020 sports competitions. This will include men’s soccer, women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s cross country, and women’s cross country. All of the above sports teams plan to continue practicing in preparation for a spring 2021 season.
Now, year-round sports of men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, sailing, and equestrian will also be practicing in lieu of an actual competition season. They hope to resume come springtime.
The Director of Athletics, Matt Roberts, issued a statement regarding the matter. “We thank our local medical community and sports medicine staff for their tremendous efforts of implementing our current return-to-sport medical protocols and testing to get us back on campus safely… With the increased concern around the country and amongst the Colonial Athletic Association-member schools to postpone fall sports competition, we remain hopeful our fall student-athletes and coaches have the opportunity to pursue championships in the spring.”
Furthermore, the winter sports team season remains on the schedule. More information is sure to be announced as we near the season start date.
