Following a decision from the NCAA Division II to cancel fall sports championships, RMAC reevaluated its decision to hold fall sports this year. RMAC has decided to move football, men's and women's soccer, and volleyball to Spring 2020. Dates for competition have not been decided for these sports.
Cross-country and golf will proceed with their fall season as scheduled, and information about their seasons are on the Athletics website. Both sports have detailed precautions regarding competition, travel and non-competition activities.
Student Athletes on all teams are engaged in practice and/or workouts this fall. The policies and procedures in place are aligned with the “Core Principles of Resocialization of Collegiate Sport” of the NCAA, as well as Division, state and campus protocols. Some key elements include:
Student fees, including the athletics fee, will remain the same for the Fall 2020 term. Many of the fees fund fixed costs (like maintaining facilities). Additionally, golf and cross-country running are proceeding as scheduled this fall, necessitating all the same supports for student athletes normally in place.
Intramural sports and recreational activities at the Student Life Center will resume this fall, with physical distancing accommodations in place.

Yes, however, the events will be modified to ensure safety for all participants.
