ACAA Fall Sports Update
On June 9, 2020, the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA), in consultation with university and college Presidents, announced the decision to cancel first-semester sports.
This decision affects men’s and women’s soccer and cross country, and women’s rugby, as well as exhibition and early season competitions for men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and badminton. A further decision on basketball, volleyball and badminton will be made at a later date as these sports could potentially see a January 2021 start to a condensed season. Under that scenario, exhibition and season play until January would be cancelled and schedules after January 1 reduced.
While we are disappointed for our student athletes and coaches, Mount Athletics supports the decision made by the ACAA. Our priority is the health and safety of all involved in competition and the delivery of our athletic programs.
To our student athletes and coaches – MSVU values Athletics and is grateful for the tremendous contribution you make to the institution and our community. We are committed to supporting you through these uncertain times, and will have more information to share as work continues on plans for the fall. We understand that this is difficult news to hear. But we know that your resiliency, as well as your dedication and commitment to your education and sport, will see our Mount Mystics get through this time – one way together.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Take care and be safe.
