NCAA League Update – Fall 2020
By Nate LaPoint

Well things have sure been strange this offseason in the NCAA. The big topic of discussion has been when we will get back to playing games. Each conference has its own directives for its member schools and that has made things interesting for scheduling games. A few conferences are set to kick things off mid-November but others are still holding off until January. But it looks like we will probably be playing only conference games this season. We are still waiting to see what the NCAA leadership has in store for the National Tournament.
We got together as a NCAA group a number of times this summer on zoom. It was great to catch up with everyone and be able to discuss what people were hearing on a season as well as protocols moving forward. I think these calls helped share information on testing, cleaning, and travel as we get closer to finding out a season start.
This has definitely been a challenging summer for all of us and I know that we are all looking forward to getting back to some sort of normal as soon as we can. Be safe and hope to see everyone at the rink soon.
