Women's volleyball will proceed with a 2021 spring season.

The Boaard also voted to delay the start of all winter sports seasons which includes men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, and women’s bowling.

Men’s and women’s basketball will begin their seasons on January 9, 2021 while start dates for indoor track and field and women’s bowling are still under review.

Both men’s and women’s basketball will feature a 16-game conference schedule while offering teams the autonomy to play up to six contests against non-conference opponents. All teams will adhere to a uniform COVID-19 testing and reporting policy prior to each contest.

Start dates for indoor track and field and women's bowling are still under review.

“Delaying the start of our winter seasons acts in the best interest of our student-athletes, coaches, and support staff as it ensures proper resocialization for all parties while affording our membership the opportunity to implement recommended health and safety measures prior to competition,” said CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams. “Although unfortunate and unprecedented circumstances this year will prohibit athletic seasons for some, we remain committed to bolstering opportunities that amplify the experiences of our student-athletes, member institutions, partners and fans.”
